I'm trying to set up the IMAP server so that the mail boxes are auto
created. For authentication I'm using saslauthd that uses my OpenLDAP
server. I can authenticate fine but the mailboxes don't seem to get

This is my /etc/imapd.conf:
configdirectory: /var/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
admins: cyrus
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
autocreatequota: 1
allowanonymouslogin: no
allowplaintext: yes
createonpost: on
autocreateinboxfolders: sent|drafts|spam|templates

When I logged in initially I got a directory created:

Under /var/spool/imap/stage./ there is nothing. Is there something that
I need to add to LDAP or is my configuration wrong?
