Hi all !

I have installed a Cyrus Imap but am unable to create more than one mailbox
for each virtual domain.

name       : Cyrus IMAPD
version    : v2.3.1-Invoca-RPM-2.3.1-2.6.fc5 2005/12/20 15:54:43
vendor     : Project Cyrus
os         : Linux
os-version : 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5
environment: Built w/Cyrus SASL 2.1.21
             Running w/Cyrus SASL 2.1.21
             Built w/Sleepycat Software: Berkeley DB 4.3.29: (February 15,
             Running w/Sleepycat Software: Berkeley DB 4.3.29: (September
7, 2006)
             Built w/OpenSSL 0.9.8a 11 Oct 2005
             Running w/OpenSSL 0.9.8a 11 Oct 2005
             CMU Sieve 2.3
             TCP Wrappers
             mmap = shared
             lock = fcntl
             nonblock = fcntl
             idle = idled

I want to use virtual domain, so my imapd.conf looks like this:

configdirectory: /var/lib/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
admins: cyrus user at user at
sendmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
sievedir: /var/lib/imap/sieve
hashimapspool: true
sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop
pw_check_method: sasldb
sasl_mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN
virtdomains: on
tls_cert_file: /etc/pki/cyrus-imapd/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_key_file: /etc/pki/cyrus-imapd/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_ca_file: /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt

sasldblistusers2 shows the following:

user at userPassword
user at userPassword
user2 at userPassword
user2 at userPassword

If I connect to cyradm using one of the admin accounts (for example
user at I'm unable to create a new mailbox for
user2 at mailbox appears inside the INBOX folder for
user at If I try to create an admin account not related to a
domain (cyrus) the saslpasswd2 programa creates it under the full qualified
name of the server (cyrus at

Thanks in advance,

Antonio Navarro
