Try something like

dm user.OLDUSER*

DISCLAIMER: I don't have access to a cyrus imapd at the moment, and I
can't remember for sure. This is just a quick (but maybe wrong) answer
to eventually put you on the right track.

In every case, before actually doing dm <pattern*>, try the same with
some other harmless command (e.g. lm <pattern*>) to check if the
wildcard pattern really does what you want.
