Correct; I am creating the mailboxes with cyradm/Cyrus::IMAP::Admin FOR

A valid name. You know, like "asdfasdf". All letters, only a few
characters. I'm dense, but I'm not THAT dense. I tried many 'valid' names.
"testing", "asdfsadf", "fnord", "foobar"... I didn't try to create a
mailbox called "I at 5 * 5u2t/t 9898#" or anything ;)

And it'll just automagically start to log there?
