The mbox you restored from backup is likely offline, no? You don't need the whole CGP server to be offline, you can use the script on a mbox file anywhere.

The first script is outdated and buggy, and its use is not recommended anymore. It will soon be replaced by something much better.

The mailboxes aren't offline, so I'll experiment with the first one.
Thanks again.
