What version of Cyrus and how is it configured?  Are you using the 
altnamespace, unixhiersep or virtdomains options?  From looking at the 
source, the only ways that you can get the "Invalid mailbox name" error 
is if the name includes a wildcard, a trailing separator, is too long or 
you're trying to create a mailbox in a different domain.
