I was logged in as user 'cyrus'. I created a mailbox
worked, and I could set/remove permissions and store mail there. But I
discovered that all mail boxes should be created like:
I remember my first steps with Cyrus-IMAPd and I did the same mistake by
creating a mail account with name adalloz instead of user.adalloz.
Unfortunately I just do not remember how I got rid of the wrong box.
galileo.ckloiber.com> cm 'user.ckloiber'
Which gives that user an official 'INBOX:'
So I was having difficulty running the command:
galileo.ckloiber.com> dm 'ckloiber'
Which I expect to work when I'm logged in as 'cyrus'. I suspect the
difficulty may lie in the fact the mailbox to be deleted does not follow
the naming convention.
Yes, with wrong naming it is not treated as a mailbox.
One other thing you should avoid - I did run into that fault by my own
lack of knowledge - is, to define in /etc/imapd.conf an additional admin
admins: cyrus kcloiber
i.e. here ckloiber and using that account as a normal mailbox too,
because you may think it will make some maintenance easier. It will
cause you much trouble with wrongly created entries in the cyrus mailbox
