Hi folks,


Ubuntu LTS 6.06 amd64



Having tried a day unable to figure out how to add users' accounts.


Steps performed as follows;


$ su cyrus
Password: xyz

sh-3.1$ cyradm localhost
Code:
IMAP Password: xyz
              localhost> cm user.aaa
localhost> cm user.bbb
localhost> cm user.ccc
etc.
localhost> quit
sh-3.1$

all went through without complaint


Change to root

sh-3.1$ su
Password:

# saslpasswd2 aaa
Password:
Again (for verification):


# saslpasswd2 bbb
Password:
Again (for verification):


# saslpasswd2 bbb
Password:
Again (for verification)

etc. All also went through without complaint.


However on SquirrelMail I can't login to their accounts.

They are there. satimiscyrus appears there twice, as
"user/satimiscyrus" and "user.satimiscyrus". I don't know why?



Emails sent to them are rejected. Example email sent to user.aaa

$ su bbb
Unknown id: bbb

etc.


Searching the notes taken down during installing this box.


Previsouly I ran;
# cyradm -u cyrus localhost
Code:
Password: 
localhost> cm user.satimiscyrus
creating this acount "satimiscyrus" which is the only working account
disregarding the problem re unable deleting the emails received and the
sent_emails can't be saved on "INBOX.sent"


Please help. TIA
