You are right. I can create

localhost>    cm  user.test at devel

when I has been connected as cyrus at devel. Its not good to have admin for
each domain in database ( because it will be huge; all auth and other
information are stored in MySQL backend ). I need some _super-cyrus_
user, which will be able to create arbitrary mailbox with domain.
Several month ago I set it up on Linux Gentoo system and there it was
simple and it behaves as I required - cyrus user was able to create and
delete all mailboxes what he want.
