Well some days ago I installed my home "having fun with linux" server. MySql, Php, Apache, openssl and some more thingies. The I found a howto called Postfix-Cyrus-Web-cyradm-HOWTO.
All was fun. Everything compiled the first time. When starting the daemons up errors started. With google I got most of them settled (I used non-defaul locations so quite many scripts with hard links in em didn't work + some confusion with config files) but the most annoyng one stays. The mailboxes arent there. I can connect with outlook to the user's imap folder. Pop - nope cause there are no mailboxes.

Hence the question - how are they created. cyradm isn cooperating - seems to be something with the authentication. I can create valid users with webcyradm. 

cyradm gives me- 
[root at serenity bin]# ./cyradm --user cyrus --server localhost --auth plain
IMAP Password: 

Login failed: authentication failure at /usr/local/cyrus/imap/2.1.14/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/Cyrus/IMAP/Admin.pm line 118
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with plain as cyrus
[root at serenity bin]# 

^ does that mean I have bad password or what. The according 118 line is my $rc = $self->{cyrus}->authenticate(@_);)

while writing this mail I understood why my imtest doesnt work - atm my users are format <user.my.domain.name> I would like em to be <user> so that my things could authenticate normally. 

Thnx in advance
If anyone has ideas or complete solutions to my problems... :)
