Symptoms

I am unable to delete a couple of folders using mboxutil -d.  I am not sure how these folders were created, but they appear strange name-wise and are empty, so I would like to purge them.

I was able to remove these folders from disk and performed a reconstruct on the user's mailbox so they no longer exist on disk any more, but they are still in the mboxlist database.

When I try to delete them using mboxutil -d, I get an ENS error of "ENS delete notification URL too long".

Example of the folders:
