Hi guys,

I have a quick question: I installed Fedora Core 4 and need to have a POP3 daemon on it, so I installed cyrus-imapd.
I have everything working, but the problem is that now one of the users has some problems with a big email that is stuck in his

Usually, on the old servers that were just running ipop3d, I called "pine -f <mailbox-file>" and just removed the mails there.
However, since cyrus stores the mails differently, this doesn't work any more. What's the new quick way of accessing mailboxes and
emails in there?
I found the mail files under /var/spool/imap/m/<userid>, but I assume just deleting some of the email files will mess up the index
