Mailbox directory structure

Hey all,

I installed imapd server successfully, and moved configuration from old one,
but then accidentally loaded another server's configuration from puppet. Now
Cyrus looks for user mailboxes in

User       Mailbox
aaaa       /var/spool/imap/a/aaaa
user.aaaa  /var/spool/imap/u/user^aaaa

(checked using cyradmin, with creating the mailboxes above)

Actual mailbox for hypothetical user is in /var/spool/imap/a/users/aaaa
(moved from old server).

In effect Postfix gets response "5.1.1 Mailbox not found" to all requests,
including root.

I can log in using IMAP.
I can't increase Cyrus logging.

Any help/inspiration is appreciated :-)
