The goal is to have IMAPD authentication become symbiotic with SASL2,
separate from posixAccounts. I am using Postfix (presently!) as the MTA
and I configured:

Correct. I want to enable the mail subsystem to not rely upon
/etc/passwd for anything. I also host a couple of domains here, for
which the recipients don't need to be in /etc/passwd.

The permissions on the mailbox, created via "cm" in cyradm are:
pc.mydom.com> lam user/forrie
now that seems correct and it should allow me to remove the sub-folders

I know what you're saying here. However, I've attempted to delete this
new folder "Test" via the same method an it won't budge.
This in lieu of the errors I encountered (ie: imaps: no user in db) made
me think there's an issue somewhere with authentication. But I'm new to
Cyrus, so I'm still figuring some of this out ;-)
