Hi there,

Again I rely on you. In cyradm I created a mailbox to solve another 
problem (posted before and not yet solved: bringing back the special 

I logged in to cyradm as cyrus. I created the folders user.hans.INBOX, 
user.hans.INBOX.Sent and user.hans.INBOX.Drafts.

Since this did help with my problem of missing special folders I want to 
delete them again e.g. using "dm user.hans.INBOX.Sent". cyradm sais 
"Permission denied". When logging in as user hans and doing a "dm 
INBOX.Drafts" I get "Invalid mailbox name". This also is the case when 
trying to access/delete this folders by a client (KMail).

Doing a "dm INBOX" as user hans I get "Operation is not supported on 
mailbox". A "lm" as user hans gives me (beside others) two INBOX 
INBOX (\HasChildren) and
INBOX (\Noinferiors)
INBOX.Drafts (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX.Sent (\HasNoChildren)

Can anybody help in order to get rid of those folders?

Best regards
