       ctl_mboxlist - perform operations on the mailbox list database


       ctl_mboxlist [ -C config-file ] -d [ -x ] [ -p partition ]
                    [ -f filename ]
       ctl_mboxlist [ -C config-file ] -u [ -f filename ]
       ctl_mboxlist [ -C config-file ] -m [ -a ] [ -w ] [ -i ]
                    [ -f filename ]
       ctl_mboxlist [ -C config-file ] -v [ -f filename ]


       Ctl_mboxlist  is  used  to perform various administrative operations on
       the mailbox list database.

       Ctl_mboxlist reads its configuration options out of  the  imapd.conf(5)
       file  unless  specified otherwise by -C.  The configdirectory option is
       used to determine the default location of the mailbox list database.


       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -d     Dump the contents of  the  database  to  standard  output  in  a
              portable  flat-text  format.  NOTE: In Cyrus versions 2.2.13 and
              earlier, the dump format did not include the mailbox type flags,
              breaking  remote  mailboxes  (frontends, mupdate master, unified
              backends) when undumped.

       -x     When performing a dump, remove the  mailboxes  dumped  from  the
              mailbox list (mostly useful when specified with -p)

       -p partition
              When  performing  a dump, dump only thise mailboxes that live on

       -u     Load the contents of the  database  from  standard  input.   The
              input  MUST  be in the format output using the -d option.  NOTE:
              Both the old and new formats can be loaded, but the  old  format
              will break remote mailboxes.

       -m     For  backend  servers in the Cyrus Murder, synchronize the local
              mailbox list file with the MUPDATE server.

       -a     When  used  with  -m,  assume  the  local  mailboxes   file   is
              authoritiative,  that is, only change the mupdate server, do not
              delete any local mailboxes.  USE THIS OPTION WITH  CARE,  as  it
              allows namespace collisions into the murder.

       -w     When  used  with  -m,  print  out  what would be done but do not
              perform the operations.

       -i     When used with -m, asks for verification before  deleting  local

       -v     Verify  the  consistency  of  the  mailbox list database and the
              spool partition(s). Mailboxes present in the  database  and  not
              located  on  a  spool  partition,  and  those located on a spool
              partition (directory containing a valid cyrus.header  file)  and
              not  present  in  the database will be reported.  Note that this
              function is very I/O intensive.

       -f filename
              Use the database specified by filename instead  of  the  default
