Well, what i mean is this.

Up until now we were using popper as the method of our using retrieving
their email, and with popper, as long as the user has an account on the Mail
server, a mailbox is automagically created when sendmail writes their first
message to /var/spool/mail.

Does it work the same way in cyrus? if not is there a way to automate the
process of adding/removing mailboxes, with our add/remove user scripts?
