Hi Sebastian Hagedorn ,

i have no idea how follow-up works in this list, i hope this mail goes to the right place.

Yes, the command is correct. On Ubuntu 18.04 there is no cyr_expire and the entry
"/usr/sbin/cyrus expire" is in cyrus.conf by default.

In the log files the results are printed ".. localhost cyrus/cyr_expire[14320]: Expired 0
and expunged 0 out of 143844 messages from 818 mailboxes"
