    The cyrus.index file of the mailbox is opened and the header is read to
    check for new messages.

    When a new message is stored, the cyrus.index and cyrus.cache files are
    updated, and possibly the corresponding quota file is updated.

    Bad idea. Search the list archives for the reasons why.
