I'm sorry for not providing imapd.conf. Here it is

configdirectory: /var/lib/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
admins: cyrus
sievedir: /var/lib/imap/sieve
sendmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
hashimapspool: true
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
sasl_mech_list: PLAIN
tls_cert_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_key_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_ca_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt
autocreatequota: 500000
createonpost: yes

As you can see, nothing special. It has worked perfect with 2.1.x so
expect it to be just a small detail in the upgraded patches.

Thanks for looking into it.
