Ok, but then how should we do ? Should we make a script for this, what
would be the equivalent to autocreate ? What do you think of this :

su - cyrus
cyradm --user cyrus --auth login localhost
cm user.USERNAME

Would this be the equivalent ?

But now I get "Unrecognized command" when I connect to the mailbox ?
(Before it was something like "Inbox does not exist")
