Why can't I see my mailboxes as an administrator through cyradm?

I'm running the cyradm tool and when I log in as one of the accounts who 
are supposedly the administrators of my system I only see my local 
mailboxes and not the upper level mailboxes.   In other words, I see my 
own inbox, but not the inbox of everyone else.

I need to delete some users but cannot because I can't see them!

Any ideas would be extremely appreciated.

I'm running mac OSX 5.5.

Example of what I see:
root# ./cyradm -user cyrusadmin localhost
localhost> lm
INBOX (\Noinferiors)

(server name updated to protect my systems)
