Symptoms

User complaint that messages were being duplicated thousands of times in their INBOX and also that messages disappear randomly when accessing them in webmail.

Upon investigation, found that the user has ~10k store.exp files in their INBOX.

(17:31:35) [/san/ms/part04-idx/idx/=user/d6/a6/=jsmith] ls -l | grep -c store.exp
9377

Performed a basic reconstruct on the account and it complained and did a repair (which took almost an hour):

(15:36:48) [/san/ms/part04-idx/idx/=user/d6/a6/=jsmith] reconstruct user/jsmith/INBOX
user/jsmith/INBOX
ERROR: Inconsistent information: 2573 idx records 880967 messages 878281 expunged
Reconstructing...

Also seeing this same message repeated over and over in the imap log:
