Thanks for the follow up. I found that the defaultdomain was set to "localdomain" and when I changed it to mydomain.local I was able to login using "cyrus". I'm not sure how this impacts mail delivery to cyrus-imap since this is a dev box nor do I remember why I set it to localdomain some years ago. Anyway, that part seems to work now.

I do another another question though. The web page you showed has the following example:

cyradm> create user.jill at (create a user)

All of my legacy email accounts are user/username at domain.tld. Is there a reason to use the . over the /? I also notice that when I do autocreate it uses / instead of a .
