it seems like you have logged on to the imapd as administrator with some
(somewhat broken) MUA that creates those mailboxes. Give your user full
rights to the mailboxes (see the archives for previous discussions on
removal of mailboxes if you want to set som explicit right) and remove
them using cyradm. Anyway it's a good example that it's bad to log on
as administrator using anything else than imap admin tools like cyradm.
