Gosh sometimes at night I can be so vaque... I had found this in the
FAQ and changed it in the imapd.conf, however, I had not restarted the
service. So I thought it didn't work...
Seems to be working now, but how do I specify the mailbox creation with
cm user.joe.dude or cm user/joe.dude
because both seem to work.
