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.
Read configuration options from config-file.
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.
