I recently had an issue with a folder in a mailbox that would not show any subfolders. I created a new folder 'folder2' and moved all of the subfolders to it and then performed a reconstruct on the new set of folders and everything worked. Now I deleted the old folder 'folder' from the file system and then (after it wouldn't go away from the cyradm listing) used cyr_dbtool to manually remove it (and the subfolders) from the mailboxes.db file. The old folders and subfolders are now gone, however, I can't (using the IMAP client) rename 'folder2' back to 'folder' as when I do, the subfolders are not visible. I've dumped the mailboxes.db file to a flat file to look and see if there is anything in there that wasn't visible in cyradm or using cyr_dbtool show. Everything is as expected except there are some DELETED.user.xxx.folder entries at the top. Are you not allowed the create folders with the same name you've just deleted? Where are these DELETED folders actually stored and how long does it take them to go away? (I'm not using delayed expunge.)Sounds like you are using delayed delete. Mine show up in /imap/mail/C/DELETED/ . How long they stay around depends on when you run cyr_expire and what parameters you give it. Man page entries: deletedprefix: DELETED If "delete_mode" set to be "delayed", the prefix for the deleted mailboxes hierarchy. The hierarchy delimiter will be automatically appended. delete_mode: immediate The manner in which mailboxes are deleted. "immediate" mode is the default behavior in which mailboxes are removed immediately. In "delayed" mode, mailboxes are renamed to a special hiearchy defined by the "deletedprefix" option to be removed later by cyr_expire. Allowed values: immediate, delayedI don't have any entry in imapd.conf for delete_mode so I'm thinking that it's using the default of immediate. I did check the file system again and I can't find those DELETED folders anywhere, so I'm guessing that mailboxes.db is just wrong probably because of some bug. At your suggestion, I checked cyr_expire and it is set to 3 days, so perhaps that's my issue. Maybe those entries in mailboxes.db will go away on their own after 3 days. I think I might wait just out of curiosity and then upgrade to 2.4.16 to see if these mailbox naming issue (bug 2685?) is solved. I wonder if there is any harm in removing those DELETED entries in mailboxes.db if I can't find them anywhere in the file system?
I am thinking the worst that would happen is you get an I/O error if the DELETED hierarchy really doesn't exist.
Have you tried mbpath? For example: [root@student ~]# /usr/local/cyrus/bin/mbpath DELETED.user.whoj.4FB1557F /imap/mail/C/DELETED/user/whoj/4FB1557F
