Seriously though, you would run some sort of audit every so often that
compares mailboxes to your authentication database. We also delete
mailboxes after a fixed amount of time with no logins for our free
accounts, or a time after which they stopped paying for our paid
accounts, which I guess is similar to graduating...
I guess you could add an option to cyr_expire to query the authentication
database for each user.* mailbox and optionally delete it if the user
was no longer present. Dangerous if your authentication daemon is offline
though! For that matter, does sasl let you check if a user exists without
knowing their password?
