The information is held in the cyrus.index files in the various  
folders in /kolab/var/imapd/spool/

Either they are missing or cyrus imapd is unable to read them. You  
could try to use the "reconstruct" tool that comes with the cyrus  
imapd installation but I'm not certain that this will be able to  
reconstruct your flags (such as "seen").
