That is a security feature. This avoids that users accidentally delete
their mail account. The cyrus-imapd superuser would have to change the
permissions. But even if you delete the mailbox inside cyrus the
authentification data will persist in the sasldb(2) database unless root
deletes the user. And the cyrus-imapd should be compiled with the
autocreate patch, so that for users with login data the INBOX will be
created automagically on first login/delivery.
