unixhierarchysep leads to "mailbox does not exists"

I'm trying to set up virtual domains on my server and therefore, I'd 
like to have usernames as test at pm-soft.be and test at pm-soft.com, with 
both users using different mailboxes.

My problem is:  If I try to create a mailbox with "cm 
user.test at pm-soft.be" without setting "unixhierarchysep: yes", I get 
"permission denied".
If I set "unixhierarchysep: yes", I can create the mailbox, but it 
appears as "/var/spool/cyrus/mail/user^test at pm-soft^be" and when I try 
to ream the mailbox, I get an error message: "Mailbox does not exist".
I've tried with both test and test at pm-soft.be as user names to connect.

Can anyone help me on this ?
