       cyr_expire - expire messages and duplicate delivery database entries


       cyr_expire [ -C config-file ] -E days [ -v ]


       Cyr_expire  is  used to expire messages and duplicate delivery database
       entries.   The  expiration   of   messages   is   controlled   by   the
       /vendor/cmu/cyrus-imapd/expire  mailbox  annotation which specifies the
       age (in days) of messages in the given mailbox that should be  deleted.
       Any duplicate delivery database entries which correspond to the mailbox
       are also deleted at the same frequency.

       The value of the /vendor/cmu/cyrus-imapd/expire annotation is inherited
       by  all children of the given mailbox, so an entire mailbox tree can be
       expired by seting a single annotation on the root of that tree.   If  a
       mailbox  does  not have a /vendor/cmu/cyrus-imapd/expire annotation set
       on it (or does not inherit one), then no messages are expired from  the

       Cyr_expire  reads  its  configuration  options out of the imapd.conf(5)
       file unless specified otherwise by -C.


       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -E days
              Prune the duplicate database of entries older than  days.   This
              value is only used for entries which do not have a corresponding
              /vendor/cmu/cyrus-imapd/expire mailbox annotation.

       -v     Enable verbose output.
