NAME

  reconstruct -	Reconstructs IMAP mailboxes

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/bin/reconstruct [-r] mailbox...

  /usr/bin/reconstruct -m

OPTIONS

  -r  Recursively reconstruct all sub-mailboxes	of the mailboxes or mailbox
      prefixes given as	arguments.

  -m  Rebuild the mailboxes file.  Uses	whatever data in the existing mail-
      boxes file it can	collect, then scans all	partitions listed in the
      imapd.conf(4) file for additional	mailboxes.

DESCRIPTION

  The reconstruct command rebuilds one or more IMAP mailboxes.	When invoked
  with the -m switch, it rebuilds the master mailboxes file.  It can be	used
  to recover from almost any sort of data corruption.

  If the reconstruct command can find existing header and index	files, it
  attempts to preserve any data	in them	that is	not derivable from the mes-
  sage files themselves.  The state reconstruct	attempts to preserve includes
  the option names, option state, and internal date. The reconstruct command
  derives all other information	from the message files.

  The reconstruct command reads	its configuration options from the
  imapd.conf(4)	file.

  The reconstruct command does not adjust the quota usage recorded in any
  quota	root files.  After running the reconstruct command, run	the
  imapquota(8) command with the	-f switch in order to fix the quota root
  files.

FILES

  /etc/imapd.conf
      Configuration file for the IMAP server
