If he's restoring from an old machine (they're not currently indexed by Dovecot on the new server), they're going to get a new UID when Dovecot finds them anyway, right?

If he copied them from the old server into folder/new on the new one, would Dovecot add the S and W flags when it moves them to folder/cur?
