sorry, I must have mislead you.  I login to cryadm with the account  
emailadmin but my own mail account is jhurd which is not an admin.
I can see user/* in my mail client logged in as jhurd (non-admin) and  
in cryadm for that matter.  and or course the same with emailadmin  
since it is an admin account.

This is the problem.  my account is not an admin account but it acts  
like one.  I have in the past added this account to the admins, could  
there be something cached or similar?  i have of course restarted  
imap after making this change.
