       Cyrus::IMAP::Admin - Cyrus administrative interface Perl module

         my $client = Cyrus::IMAP::Admin->new('mailhost'[, $flags]);

       This module is a Perl interface to Cyrus administrative functions.  It
       is used to implement Cyrus::IMAP::Admin::Shell (otherwise known as
       cyradm and also available for use in Perl administrative programs.


       Many of the methods have a cyradm-compatible name and a shorter name.
       The shorter name is shown in the synopsis when it exists; the
       cyradm-compatible name should be reasonably obvious.

       In general, methods return undef or empty lists on error.  In some
       cases a method may return an empty list without an error (i.e. "list"
       of a nonexistent hierarchy), so it may be necessary to check the error
       state explicitly via the "error" method.

       new($server[, $flags])
           Instantiates a cyradm object.  This is in fact an Cyrus::IMAP
           object with a few additional methods, so all Cyrus::IMAP methods
           are available if needed.  (In particular, you will always want to
           use the "authenticate" method.)

           Return the last error that occurred, or undef if the last operation
           was successful.  This is in some cases (such as "list") the only
           way to distinguish between a successful return of an empty list and
           an error return.

           Calling "error" does not reset the error state, so it is legal to

               @folders = $cyradm->list($spec);
               print STDERR "Error: ", $cyradm->error if $cyradm->error;

       createmailbox($mailbox[, $partition])
       create($mailbox[, $partition])
           Create a new mailbox on the specified or default partition.

           Delete a mailbox.  As with cyradm, you will probably need to add
           the c ACL for yourself to the mailbox with "setaclmailbox" first.

       deleteaclmailbox($mailbox, $user[, ...])
       deleteacl($mailbox, $user[, ...])
           Delete one or more ACL from a mailbox.

           Returns a hash of mailbox ACLs, with each key being a Cyrus user
           and the corresponding value being the ACL.

       listmailbox($pattern[, $reference])
       list($pattern[, $reference])
           List mailboxes matching the specified pattern, starting from the
           specified reference.  The result is a list; each element is an
           array containing the mailbox name, attributes, and the separator.
           (This interface may change.)

       listsubscribed($pattern[, $reference])
       subscribed($pattern[, $reference])
           Like "listmailbox" but only shows subscribed mailboxes.

           Returns a hash specifying the quota for the specified quota root.
           Use "listquotaroot" to find the quota root for a mailbox.

           Returns a list, the first element is the quota root for the mailbox
           and remaining elements are a hash specifying its quota.

       renamemailbox($from, $to[, $partition])
       rename($from, $to[, $partition])
           Renames the specified mailbox, optionally moving it to a different

       setaclmailbox($mailbox, $user => $acl[, ...])
       setacl($mailbox, $user => $acl[, ...])
           Set ACLs on a mailbox.  The ACL may be one of the special strings
           "none", "read" ("lrs"), "post" ("lrsp"), "append" ("lrsip"),
           "write" ("lrswipkxte"), "delete" ("lrxte"), or "all"
           ("lrswipkxte"), or any combinations of the ACL codes:

           l   Lookup (mailbox is visible to LIST/LSUB, SUBSCRIBE mailbox)

           r   Read (SELECT/EXAMINE the mailbox, perform STATUS)

           s   Seen (set/clear \SEEN flag via STORE, also set \SEEN flag
                   APPEND/COPY/FETCH BODY[...])

           w   Write flags other than \SEEN and \DELETED

           i   Insert (APPEND, COPY destination)

           p   Post (send mail to mailbox)

           k   Create mailbox (CREATE new sub-mailboxes, parent for new
               mailbox in RENAME)

           x   Delete mailbox (DELETE mailbox, old mailbox name in RENAME)

           t   Delete messages (set/clear \DELETED flag via STORE, also set
                   flag during APPEND/COPY)

           e   Perform EXPUNGE and expunge as part of CLOSE


       setquota($mailbox, $resource, $quota[, ...])
           Set quotas on a mailbox.  Note that Cyrus currently only defines
           one resource, "STORAGE".  As defined in RFC 2087, the units are
           groups of 1024 octets (i.e. Kilobytes)

       xfermailbox($mailbox, $server[, $partition])
       xfer($mailbox, $server[, $partition])
           Transfers (relocates) the specified mailbox to a different server.
