Neither have we, and I know for sure my I/O subsystem is unable to handle
the extra metadata reconstruction load.

To give you an idea : 73k users, 508k mailboxes, 4.5 TB of messages, 48M
In an additional effort to grasp the dynamics of our central mail system
(when hosting over 10k users it pays to have regular reporting and statistics
produced) I discovered that no less than 66% of messages reside in Inboxes.
Which is extraordinary, given the fact that POP3 users number less than 10%
of the total. (We are a mixed IMAP/POP shop, for historical reasons.)
If more messages were to be found in sub-mailboxes, metadata conversion load
would have been more distributed in time, as mailboxes are accessed.
