You can use the
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/remove_dovecot_index_files script to remove the Dovecot® index logs and cache files from cPanel mail accounts. You could use this, for example, to remove corrupted index logs and cache files or to remove files that lost synchronization during a transfer.
The Dovecot service automatically regenerates an account's index logs and cache files the next time an account logs in.
How to call the
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/remove_dovecot_index_files script with the following flags:
The cPanel account that owns the mailboxes from which you wish to remove Dovecot index files.
|The reseller account that owns the cPanel accounts which owns the mailboxes from which you wish to remove Dovecot index files.|
|Remove Dovecot index files from all email accounts that exist on the server.||N/A|
|Return expanded output.||N/A|

If the script succeeds, it will return output similar to the following example:
