Reconstructing a user's mailbox

Note: run these commands as the cyrus user, not root.

You want to reconstruct the index files for a user, you have recovered a deleted mail file from backup and given it a suitable name (eg user/ben-lacy/33.), but it is not visible since it is not indexed:

reconstruct -r user.ben-lacy

If you have the unixhierarchysep:yes option set in /etc/imapd.conf you would need to run:

reconstruct -r user/ben.lacy

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
