Kolab migration can cause mailbox-uidcache.db corruption and there are
no information on how to fix it.

To migrate an email system from AD/exchange to Kolab you need to extract
all the needed fields.
On high number of users it's possible that some field are not the one
that you expect.

If the ldap ldif import reveal some users problem (like wrong email
field or other field with incorrect data) then it's possible to correct
it with ldapmodify or phpldapadmin or with kolab webadmin interface.

However it seems that after the users are created with the ldap import
the file mailbox-uidcache.db is created .
It seems that this berkley db file will retain all the ldap derived
inconsistencies even if it was fixed in ldap.

When there are those inconsistencies mailboxes are not anymore correctly

There's a method to "recostruct" the mailboxes-uidcache.db file from the
ldap directory?
