What I wanted to suggest is to replace the "servername" value in 
imapd.conf (with the 'side effect' of having that name shown when 
connecting to that server).

Or would it be possible to change the default domain in your setup to 
the same value as servername.

If I rembember correctly, the only setup where I got the admin thing 
really working was when I had both variables set to the same value; 
however, I'm quite sure it's a knowledge problem and there is some 
nicer solution (anybody out on the list who could give a hint?).
