Summary: can safely I put mailbox subscriptions for a new user directly into their .sub file ?
I am putting together a large cyrus system - 20,000 users - at a UK college.
Creation of users need to be automatic, I will get a list of new users every
day from central admin. Logged in as cyrus I can create the users and their
mail boxes (drafts, etc) using a perl script, easy.
The user then needs to be subscribed to their mailboxes. This must be done
logged in as the user - that is hard, I have no way of knowing their password.
I do notice that the user fred's subscription list is stored in:
Is there any reason why I should not just create that file ?
Come to that, is there any reason why I should not create the user's
mailbox directly, ie .../users/fred/ and use reconstruct to rebuild
the cyrus.cache, etc files ?
