Did you specify defaultdomain param?  You will need to use
admin at defaultdomain userid when you want to administer your cyrus

Alternatively, you can use 'virtdomains: userid'.  Cyrus will not attempt
to resolve unqualified userids and it will assume that unqualified userids
belong to 'defaultdomain' if specified.
