Re: Problem with folder subscriptions and LIST/LSUB

Quick workaround (assuming that you have root access to the server):

1) using your mail client, create a new folder named newfolder.

2) log in to your server and from a root shell, su to your cyrus user.

3). Navigate the filesystem and cp all the mail files from the directory with the funky name that Cyrus won't list to newfolder.

4) reconstruct newfolder.
