I have deleted mail folders and files from my cyrus mail directory using "rm", but obvioulsy the mailboxes of these files are still in the Cyrus database, that is mailboxes.db. I have tried to correct this problem by dumping mailboxes.db into a text file (using ctl_mboxlist), editing the text file, and then reconstructing mailboxes.db. However, I am getting the error message "fatal error: can't read mailboxes file". Tried everything that comes to mind or read mailboxes.db, but without success. Please help.

Thank you.

Were you doing the reconstruction of the mailboxes db as the Cryus user?

Did you restart master after futzing with the mailboxes db?

Have you done (as the Cyrus user) a 'reconstruct -r user.whoever'?
