Hi all,

I am new to this list but didn't to search the archives, so I hope this
question is not disturbing anyone.

I have a brand new fetchmail > procmail > cyrus-imapd setup on a FreeBSD
6.0-RELEASE (amd64) machine. all is working very well, except for
delivery of mails into specific user mailboxes.

+user.bbbart.Lists.gphoto.devel: Mailbox does not exist
alex # logout
bbbart at alex ~ $ echo "" | /usr/local/cyrus/bin/deliver -m
+Lists.gphoto.devel: Mailbox does not exist

course, when I specify the user bbbart at the end of the deliver
statement, the empty mail gets delivered in my INBOX, but this is not
what I want.

can anyone explain this?

thanks a lot!

kind regards,
Bart Van Loon
