How did you try to access it? Can you connect via imclient and

Hi Pieter,

More to the point, how did you _create_ the pieter.with.points mailbox?
When you turn on unixhierarchysep, rather than the old command of:
      "cm user.peterwithoutpoints",
you use a slash after user thus:
      "cm user/peter.with.points".
I think I had created about 10 mailboxes before it made it through the
armor on my head!
