First off... I am aware of the "c" right.

I am connecting as cyrus (which has been added to the "admins" directive and
the server has been restarted.)

The mailbox in question was created incorrectly at the top level "foobar"
and not "user.foobar".

Here are the rights of "foobar":
cyrus lrswipcda

Here's the command I've attempted to delete the mailbox "foobar":
localhost> dm foobar

I tried to read as many "google results" as possible before posting here.
