How to rebuild IMAP mailboxes on OS X Server OS X Server
The Mail Service Administration manual gets it wrong when it tells you how to repair an IMAP database on OS X Server. Here's one "right way" to do it. As root, type:
sudo -u cyrus /usr/bin/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -r -f user/xxx
where xxx is the name of the user whose IMAP database you want to rebuild. This differs not only from what it says in the manual, but from standard Cyrus behavior (which would use user.xxx instead of user/xxx).

If you use the -i flag, sub mailboxes should be rebuilt. If you don't, they won't.

I posted a hint yesterday about rebuilding IMAP mailboxes too. Is there a recurring problem happening? I had my IMAP mailboxes give a fatal failure and found this site with step by step instructions on rebuilding it.
