    No, this should be safe. Just-in-case, don't do this too close to
    midnight, as a delivery may still be in progress to "yesterday's"
    sub-directory at midnight and for some time after (default
    command_time_limit = 1000s). For extra safety you could go back
    2 days and leave yesterday's and today's mail "on-line".
