I get the following errors now - 
localhost.localdomain> cm user.order at
createmailbox: Permission denied
localhost.localdomain> cm user/order at
createmailbox: Invalid mailbox name

I added the following to imapd.conf
unixhierarchysep: 0
altnamespace: 0
I still get the same errors as above.

Try to add a user like this (or change altnamespace+uixhieracy),

cm user/order at
