i need to restore some old mail backups from a system i wasnt the
admin. Emails are on Maildir, which i'm using on the actual server, so
should be no big deal. I'm just thinking of copying files from the
folders i need, from the old backup, to the specific dirs on the actual
buuuut, watching the backup, i noticed that LOTS of files on the
Maildirs do not have the S= parameters on its name nor W=. For example:
files from the actual system looks like:
i've already tested copying those files to a current Maildir and it
works just fine, no problem at all on that. There's no problem on the
restore of those messages itself.
Anyway, my questions are ....
1) do the lack of S= and W= parameters will negatively impact on
something ? Quota calculation comes to my head about that .... as i'll
have to restore several thousands of messages, i'm worried about
negative impacts on anything
2) is there any way of having dovecot to calculating the S= and W=
parameters and renaming those files and, thus, avoiding some negative
impact caused by the lack of them ?
i'm using dovecot 1.2.11 ......
