Read the cyradm man page.


           Administrators do not have implicit delete rights on mailboxes.
           Use the setaclmailbox command to grant the "c" permission (or other
           permission as specified by the deleteright configuration option in
           imapd.conf) to your principal if you need to delete a mailbox you
           do not own.
