Hi everyone,

I did this

localhost bin # cyradm -auth DIGEST-MD5 --user robbie at --authz robbie at localhost
Password: <of course, I put in the correct password and pressed enter>
localhost.localdomain> cm user.order at
createmailbox: Permission denied

here is some of my imapd.conf
admins: cyrus, robbie at, robbie at


anyone got an idea of whats going on?
It was working before...happened all of a sudden without me doing nothing
I want to create a mailbox without permission denied. robbie at is an admin, as shown above. All the emails on the system work fine in sync with postfix I just cant add new ones for some reason.

Also If I log in as cyrus even with the correct password with cyradm, I get "cannot authenticate with digest-md5 as cyrus." another part of imapd.conf says:

Ive tried this 50 times, caps lock is off. it has to be a problem with the server.
