setting up IMAP users

I'm using cyrus on SLES9 and pretty happy with it till now :)
I'd suggest to:
1) Try to use web-cyradm ( ) - Web-cyradm is a web based software that glues topnotch mailing technologies like cyrus-imap and postfix together. The focus is on administrating small and large mailing environments.
Be sure also to subscribe to their list, if you want to use this interface.
2) The second option is via LDAP - Configuring a Mail Server on SLES ( <> ).
I'm using the first one, so there I can help.

Subject: setting up IMAP users

im currently a new user of cyrus, im very familiar with courier as thats what ive always used in the past for mail servers.  im currently using SLES9 and that distro uses cyrus, it doesnt seem to be automagiclly making the users mail folders, there is a directory under the root home folder called Mail which seems to have the correct folders but i cannot login to that account via IMAP for some reason.  And the command line tool isnt exactly user friendly, i tried "cyradm -auth localhost" and i get a cyrus prompt, then i type cm 'user' and i get "no connection to server" if i dont use the "-auth" i get a segment fault.  ive pretty much narrowed down the problem to cyrus and the mail directories not being there.  is there any help you can give me to get this working?  i am looking into your web admin program, hopefully that will work once the web server comes online.

thanks for any and all replies.
