Recovering the Cyrus Admin password

You can't recover the password as such. What you can do is reset it. To do that login to your IMAPD server as root and run:

saslpasswd2 cyrus-admin

Recovering a corrupt mailbox

Change to the cyrus user.

$ sudo su - cyrus

Change to the directory about the corrupt database. For example if the mailbox is you would go to:

$ cd /var/spool/imap/domain/v/

Then rebuild the mailbox

$ /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/reconstruct -r -f -U user/

This is very extreme and may result in all your mail appearing in both the inbox and any sub folders you previously saved the message in.
