sorry Jon, i think i responded to you, but not to the
whole group.  yes, i do have both of these packages 
installed.  the imap server works good because when i
manually create a mailbox using cyradm then a remote
client can see the mailbox.  if someone can just show
what the format of their mailboxes are i think that
might be the answer.  as i mentioned i've created the
mailboxes manually but postfix still won't deliver to
them so i may have the format and/or permissions

/kolab/bin/cyradm -u manager yourdomainname

then, when you see the new prompt list
your mailboxes with the lam command:

yourdomainname> lam *

and share the format of your output please.  thanks
in advance.
