The xlist-flag settings existed for a while in Cyrus IMAP 2.4, for setting special-use style flags for particular folder names (on a server-wide basis). This was deprecated at some point with the introduction of RFC 6154.

The cvt_xlist_specialuse tool was introduced in Cyrus IMAP 3.0 to aid administrators in upgrading from older deployments where xlist-flag settings had been in use. Files See Also
