The script:

I require a server-side sent directory.  That way, I don't have to try
to synchronize the sent directory on the three clients that I use, and
we have a copy of every outgoing mail sent

So, in Postfix, I say:   always_bcc = storesent
and in /etc/aliases:     storesent: |/usr/sbin/storesent

That way, Postfix invokes this script on every message that passes
through the mail server.  The script throws out the messages with
non-local origin and then saves the rest in the appropriate user's
mailbox.  I've been doing this for years on Courier -- it takes
about a 10-line script.

Here's where the authentication happens:

    my $userid = shift;

    my $cl = Cyrus::IMAP::Admin->new('localhost');
    die "Could not connect to Cyrus server" .
        ($! ? ": $!\n" : "\n") unless $cl;

    my $rc = $cl->authenticate('-user' => $user, '-password' => $pass);
    die "Could not log in: " . $cl->error . "\n" unless $rc;

    # check for the existence of the Sent folder
    unless( $cl->list("user.$userid.$sent") ) {
        # doesn't exist, so create it.
        die "Could not create user.$userid.$sent: " .
            $cl->error . "\n" if $cl->error;


I've included the entire script as an attachment.

It must be possible to get a protocol dump, but I'm not sure how.
Is there a flag I can turn on in Perl to get the Cyrus::IMAP::Admin
module to log all LMTP traffic?  Feel free to comment, no matter how
harshly.  :)
