The GUI to administrate the cyrus+ldap is really a wanted since long.
Presently I am using egroupware groupware and it provides emailadmin
interface to put the cyrus  admin user and password. When I create a new
user, it also creates a mailbox for that user in the cyrus. But running
a groupware just to administrate the cyrus is more than enough. That's
why I am looking an interface to do the same. There is web-cyradm but I
have not found any doc which shows how to configure it to work with
Ldap. If you find any success with gosa or something else , please let
us know. we can't overlook the postfix+cyrus+ldap combination because of
its performance. ldap is first but difficult to design tool for ldap
