Imsexport Lists Deleted Folders (Doc ID 2341567.1)

Last updated on APRIL 12, 2023

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 8.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The imsexport command lists deleted folders.

The following settings are used: = 504 = 1

As an example, over IMAP, the following steps are taken:

2 create testdeletefolder
2 OK Completed
3 delete testdeletefolder
3 OK Completed

$ mboxutil -lp user/<uid>/*

That folder does not exist from an IMAP perspective. imsexport cannot export any messages (which there are none in this case, but there could be expunged messages). But if there were, imsexport could not export them.

Due to this issue, there is confusion for our security department, who do "collections" of suspect mail. When they do mboxutil -l, it does not show this folder, but then when they do imsexport, it does. That confuses them.
