[Dovecot] .imap.index.data Files

We recently had a mail storm which resulted in many tens of thousands of
e-mails being delivered to each of 4 users in just 5 minutes.
This was quickly resolved.
However, one more savvy user though he could use the webmail (squirrelmail)
to delete the e-mail without downloading it. He gave up on the idea though.
I, however, removed the mail directly from the server file system.
The problem now is that he has a .imap.index.data file of over 250MB!
I have asked him to login again and view all the directories, I even sent
him another test and asked him to delete this via webmail.
None of this had any effect on the file.
I thought the indexes were rebuilt with the deletion of a message?
