Heheh, indeed at 6am I remebered that I had to give delive SUID rights, 
which admittedly is not the right[TM] way, but works.

But off course I got struct immediatly with another weirdness:

[root at somehost root]# cyradm -user 1stadmin localhost
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with  as steveadmin

Dec 30 16:03:25 somehost imapd[2517]: accepted connection
Dec 30 16:03:25 somehost master[2638]: about to exec /usr/cyrus/bin/imapd
Dec 30 16:03:25 somehost imap[2638]: executed
Dec 30 16:03:26 somehost master[2642]: about to exec /usr/cyrus/bin/lmtpd
Dec 30 16:03:27 somehost imapd[2517]: badlogin: 
local-somehost[] OTP [SASL(-13): authentication failure: 
External SSF not good enough]

although I have 1stadmin in my imapd.conf he wont let me auth to it, now 
this is new and seems to be because of the upgrade, 1stadmin is listed 
aswell in:

[root at somehost root]# sasldblistusers2 |grep 1stadmin
1stadmin at somehost: userPassword
1stadmin at somehost: cmusaslsecretOTP

I am not the only one with this problem c.f: 

But no reply to this one, it might've been too trivial :)

Anyways, thank for such a swift answer...

cheers Steve
