Writing a thread and finding the answer before actually posting it.

Posted 08-13-2012 at 06:16 AM by zhjim

I was about to start a thread about a problem I had with a "account" inside cyrus imap software. But like it sometimes is when you tell some your problem the solution just becomes obvious. This is one of those days. Just for anyone actually reading this heres the story.

This is the post I had written.

Hi folks,

I am trying to delete a user within cyradm to now availe. I know that I have to give me the appropriate right as the admin user of cyradm but I'm not even getting to the permission denied its more a mailbox not found. I guess the probleme here is the colon that was used when creating the user in first place. Heres a execpt from a session. Any one has an idea?


Code:
localhost> lm user:%
user:username@domain-a (\NonExistent \Noselect \HasChildren)  
localhost> lam user:%
localhost> lam user:username@domain-a
Mailbox does not exist
I substituted the real user name with username. But it holds the same characters (only alpha all lowercase). The real domain name was also substituted but only partital to reflect that i have a hyphen inside it. I did not care to preserver the length while substituting cause I don't see this matter on this low count of characters.
Is there any other way to delete the "user".

While reading before sending it the line with "(\NonExistent)" sprung to my eye. Google it and found the solutions. http://www.mail-archive.com/info-cyr.../msg20860.html
So if you ever happen to have such a funny "account" use the * wildcard and be happy.

Code:
sam user:* admin-cyrus cdlrws
dm user:*
