Imsexport Lists Deleted Folders

(Doc ID 2341567.1)

Symptoms

The imsexport command lists deleted folders.

The following settings are used:

role.store.cleanupage = 504
role.store.mailboxpurgedelay = 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/test1/*


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.
