Cyrus-IMAP: Default domain fails when virtual domains enabled.

I have a problem with my default domain when setting up imapd with
virtual domains. This may be a client side problem and the problem
(mozilla mail) has been reported,

However, can anyone confirm this behaviour:

I have set up Cyrus-IMAP server with virtual domains, and migrated
my mailbox'es to the default domain. Things works if I disable vir-
tual domains. However, enabling virtual domains I get the following
error: Mailbox does not exist.

I have the problem with the mozilla mail client, I assume it is a
client side problem since I had no problems with the same accounts
using Squirrelmail. Has anyone experienced similar problems with
mozilla mail? problems or lack of problems with other mail

Thanks, Erik


1. Added a virtual domain mailbox, me at There is
no problem reading mail for that account (login:

2. Tried other client, Squirrelmail: Access to both defaultdomain
account and me at

3. Disabled virtual domains: access to my default domain, no access to
me at (expected).

4. Specified login to defaultdomain account as 'me', me at and None works when virtual domains are enabled.
