while googling around I found that patch for cyrus from here:
I found this to be a great idea and so I wonder if there are plans on 
integrating this patch into cyrus in the future?

If not, do you think it is possible to mime this behaviour with the script? Users at our site get added to our Active Directory 
every once a while and I manged to let postfix look them up. So I think 
what happens when email is beeing sent to them, it bounces because there 
is no cyrus mailbox for them.

I think of a something like a cron job that looks up every AD user, and 
creates mailboxes if needed. This would still leave a gap between the 
time of arrival of an email an run of the cron job.

How do you guys handle this?

Kind regards


PS: The other patches seem reasonable as well.
