Thanks. The server I'm connecting to has the 'cyrus' user listed in 
proxyservers in /etc/imapd.conf:

proxyservers: cyrus mupdate

When i connect via cyradm and an authz argument, the log on the 
destination server indicates I am 'cyrus', not the user I provided in my 
authz arg:

$ cyradm --user cyrus --authz johnm mbe1
IMAP Password:



Sep  4 13:47:43 mbe1 cyrus/imap[17219]: login: mgmt.modwest.com 
[] cyrus plaintext User logged in

I am sure I am just missing something and appreciate the help.
