a manual sync (sync_client -u) on the active backend node removes the DELETED folder of the mailbox on passive node.
Open, NormalPublic

Description

We discovered that a manual sync (sync_client -u) on the active backend node removes the DELETED folder of the mailbox on passive node.. Means that the delayed delete policy (100 days) for the mailboxes is not working in that case.

Example with logfiles:

Deleted mailbox domain.de!user.test^be2.yellow via Webmail

Logfile active backend node

root@PrimaryServer [0] ~ # grep 'user.test^be2.yellow' /app/appdata/maillog
Aug 25 14:25:14 PrimaryServer cyrus-imapd/imap[3625]: Rename: domain.de!user.test^be2.yellow -> domain.de!DELETED.user.test^be2.yellow.57BEE3A9
Aug 25 14:25:14 PrimaryServer cyrus-imapd/imap[3625]: Deleted mailbox domain.de!user.test^be2.yellow
Aug 25 14:25:14 PrimaryServer cyrus-imapd/sync_client[15759]: UNSUB test^be2@domain.de domain.de!user.test^be2.yellow
Aug 25 14:25:14 PrimaryServer cyrus-imapd/sync_client[15759]: MAILBOX domain.de!user.test^be2.yellow
Aug 25 14:25:14 PrimaryServer cyrus-imapd/sync_client[15759]: MAILBOX domain.de!DELETED.user.test^be2.yellow.57BEE3A9
