I remember my first steps with Cyrus-IMAPd and I did the same mistake by
creating a mail account with name adalloz instead of user.adalloz.
Unfortunately I just do not remember how I got rid of the wrong box.

Yes, with wrong naming it is not treated as a mailbox.

One other thing you should avoid - I did run into that fault by my own
lack of knowledge - is, to define in /etc/imapd.conf an additional admin
user

admins: cyrus kcloiber

i.e. here ckloiber and using that account as a normal mailbox too,
because you may think it will make some maintenance easier. It will
cause you much trouble with wrongly created entries in the cyrus mailbox
storage.
