I coundn't find any, so I wrote my own executable cron job that scans
the index cache and checks if the corresponding mailbox exists. If not,
it echo the commands to remove the stale indices. From there, you can
review it, or pipe it into sh.
I can post it if there's any interest, but it's not that hard to write.
This is only necessary, of course, if you store the indices in a different
place than the mail folder.
