Another idea I had is simply set up another IMAP server (using Dovecot) and
drag-and-drop and just wait, which I may end up doing.

I've never used cyrrus, so I wonder if what the script does is create
new index and rename the files containing email. Which leads to filename
convention. What I do know is that the times I had issues with indexes, I
just deleted the index file and let Dovecot create a new one.
