       ctl_mboxlist - perform operations on the mailbox list database

       ctl_mboxlist [ -C config-file ] -d [ -x ] [ -p partition ]
                    [ -f filename ]
       ctl_mboxlist [ -C config-file ] -u [ -f filename ]
       ctl_mboxlist [ -C config-file ] -m [ -a ] [ -w ] [ -i ]
                    [ -f filename ]
       ctl_mboxlist [ -C config-file ] -v [ -f filename ]

       Ctl_mboxlist is used to perform various administrative operations on the
       mailbox list database.

       Ctl_mboxlist reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5)
       file unless specified otherwise by -C.  The configdirectory option is
       used to determine the default location of the mailbox list database.

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

       -d     Dump the contents of the database to standard output in a portable
              flat-text format.  NOTE: In Cyrus versions 2.2.13 and earlier, the
              dump format did not include the mailbox type flags, breaking
              remote mailboxes (frontends, mupdate master, unified backends)
              when undumped.

       -x     When performing a dump, remove the mailboxes dumped from the
              mailbox list (mostly useful when specified with -p)

       -p partition
              When performing a dump, dump only thise mailboxes that live on

       -u     Load the contents of the database from standard input.  The input
              MUST be in the format output using the -d option.  NOTE: Both the
              old and new formats can be loaded, but the old format will break
              remote mailboxes.

       -m     For backend servers in the Cyrus Murder, synchronize the local
              mailbox list file with the MUPDATE server.

       -a     When used with -m, assume the local mailboxes file is
              authoritiative, that is, only change the mupdate server, do not
              delete any local mailboxes.  USE THIS OPTION WITH CARE, as it
              allows namespace collisions into the murder.

       -w     When used with -m, print out what would be done but do not perform
              the operations.

       -i     When used with -m, asks for verification before deleting local

       -v     Verify the consistency of the mailbox list database and the spool
              partition(s). Mailboxes present in the database and not located on
              a spool partition, and those located on a spool partition
              (directory containing a valid cyrus.header file) and not present
              in the database will be reported.  Note that this function is very
              I/O intensive.

       -f filename
              Use the database specified by filename instead of the default
