Hi Patrick,

I found some entries like:
[...] cyrus/imap[5918]: Expunged 1 messages from test.tld!user.test.spam

What is the difference between the above entry and the below entry (lower and capital

[...] cyrus/cyr_expire[14039]: Expired 0 and expunged 0 out of 144674 messages from 818

The "Expunged" message should come from some imap-client (don't know which)? The
"expunged" are from the command line execution of "/usr/sbin/cyrus expire [...]".
