I agree. Try:

    Reinaldo> # all mailboxes 
    Reinaldo> $ nc server 143 
    Reinaldo> * OK maindeua Cyrus IMAP4 [...] server ready 
    Reinaldo> . LOGIN admin password . OK
    Reinaldo> User logged in 
    Reinaldo> . LIST * *

This doesn't work. I get:

  # nc localhost 143
  * OK Cyrus IMAP4 v2.2.13-Debian-2.2.13-16ubuntu1 server ready
  . LOGIN admin password
  . NO Login only available under a layer
  . LOGIN admin at password
  . NO Login only available under a layer

The admin at is the one I use for cyradm. I.e. I
always login as:

  cyradm -u admin at localhost

The admin user doesn't have mailboxes, it's just administrative only.

My imapd.conf has:

  admins: admin
  virtdomains: yes

Thanks so far!
