I was logged in as user 'cyrus'. I created a mailbox 'ckloiber' which
worked, and I could set/remove permissions and store mail there. But I
discovered that all mail boxes should be created like: 

galileo.ckloiber.com> cm 'user.ckloiber'

Which gives that user an official 'INBOX:'
So I was having difficulty running the command:

galileo.ckloiber.com> dm 'ckloiber'

Which I expect to work when I'm logged in as 'cyrus'. I suspect the
difficulty may lie in the fact the mailbox to be deleted does not follow
the naming convention.
