Hi Nikos,

YES there is no space in the name, it seems to be a parameter for cyrus.

This command seems to work on Ubuntu 18.04. (cyrus-imapd 2.5.10-3ubuntu1)

In /usr/sbin there is no cyr_expire but now i found a /usr/lib/cyrus/bin/cyr_expire

The result is the same, no files were deleted, the log file entry is the same as when i
use the "/usr/sbin/cyrus expire [..]" command

Can anybody confirm this "/usr/sbin/cyrus expire [..]" command on Ubuntu?
