Yes, it was clear that the RHEL/Fedora cyrus-imapd were taken from
invoca-ch (Simon) but they weren't the same as that which you can
download and build from Simon's web site.

I think I did the RFE on FC-3 which was long before FC-4 and RHEL-4 came
out and specifically wanted autosieve and some of the others and I know
they weren't included in RHEL-4 version. I don't use Fedora for servers
(CentOS or RHEL) so I wouldn't know where they are on the FC-4 cyrus-
imapd but my guess is that they didn't change.

So I have given up on RHEL cyrus-imapd packages and just use Simon's and
the autocreate stuff is great - excepting of course, what Aleksandar's
(note not Alexander Dalloz) admonition that when I had an issue with
ldap lookups of aliases, it created a new mailbox when it should have
aliased to a real is fragile and you have to watch out. The
autosieve and the autosubscribe features in Simon's packages are worth
straying from RHEL/Fedora packages.

As for OP - I don't recall if autocreatequota is part of Fedora's
packages, which is why I recommended checking the readme. The nasty
thing about directives in imapd.conf is that they seem to be silently
ignored if not applicable so there's no log created if the feature is
requested in imapd.conf but not part of package.
