I want to set up cyrus-imapd to work with virtual domains but I have
problems creating mail box'es:

as it is written in documentation: 

To create a new INBOX for user 'test' in defaultdomain:
   cm user.test
To create a new INBOX for user 'test' in domain '':
   cm user.test at

when i'm trying to do the same for my domains ( and i get:

$ cyradm --user cyrus --auth cram-md5 --server localhost
Password:> cm user.test> cm user.test at
createmailbox: Permission denied> cm user.test at
createmailbox: Permission denied> ver

             mboxlist.db = skiplist
             subs.db = flat
             seen.db = skiplist
             duplicate.db = db3-nosync
             tls.db = db3-nosync>

$ cat /etc/imapd.conf

configdirectory: /var/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
virtdomains: yes
sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop
sendmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
sievedir: /var/imap/sieve

before i didn't use virtual domains and everything worked fine.
any ideas?
