Postfix-Cyrus-Web-cyradm Problem...

This usually happens when the account is not created by cyrus. 

Make sure you entered the correct username/password for the cyrus user into the web-cyradm database,
and make sure you can use both of those with the command line cyradm as described in section 9.4.

If both of those seem good, try to recreate the account and then look in /var/spool/imap/user/* for the actual mailbox directory.

I've run into problems, and I can't find any solution wherever I search,
maybe someone here can help out?  I've set up my mail system strictly
according to a HOW-TO I found, the
system is a SuSE Pro 8.2.  I followed the HOW-TO down to the letter, and
things actually seems to work.. As long as I don't try to use it...

If I do a connection to p110 with telnet I get this:

+OK Cyrus POP3 v2.1.12 server ready
<852089634.1057677301 at>
user test0001
+OK Name is a valid mailbox
pass 123456
-ERR [SYS/PERM] Unable to open maildrop

I can't find ANYTHING when I search the web for this error..
