Thanks that works fine so i have to create the mailboxes first through a 
cyradm call.

Next question I have is has anyone done any work with keeping the seen 
state using the formail method? Or is this just out of the question? Has 
everyone who has needed to migrate mail and saved the seen state of the 
mail just done it through imap transfer from the old imap server into cyrus?
