lei refresh-mail-sync MFOLDER [MFOLDER...]


lei refresh-mail-sync is intended to keep old messages indexed with lei-index(1) retrievable if Maildir flags change a filename.  It will prune invalid entries for messages which no longer exist in a Maildir.

It is also useful for ensuring lei-export-kw(1) can propagate keyword (flag) changes to Maildirs and IMAP folders.

It only needs read-only access to Maildirs and IMAP folders and will not attempt to write to them at all.
