Mail.app with the Cyrus mail server bundled with X server
In my mail client, I see all *my* mailboxes.
I also see all the shared mailboxes, as children of a folder called
This makes sense because that is what the top level folder of the mail
store i called.
However, another user, also using Mail.app, instead of "user", has
"Other users". This is a real pain, becuase I can't write a script
that I want to if the folder names aren't consistent.
Can anyone suggest why it is "user" for one user and "Other Users" for
In Cyrus namespace it will always be user.<username> structures on the
server for user mailboxes. If it's showing as something else then this
is client-side behaviour. Have you checked the Mail.app client versions?
..are (or have there been) any plugins installed that modify the client?
For me as a user, I get a top level mailbox called "user" with both
Mail.app 1.3.11 on 10.3.9 and Mail.app 2.0.7 on 10.4.6.
Different user, same computers,
One user, Mail 2.0.7 on 10.4.6 has "other users"
Another user, Mail.app 1.3.11 on 10.3.9 has "other users"

might cause it.
Has anyone manually moved some files on the server?
I had something very similar for a while, and it turned out that a
folder with messages belonging to someone else had been moved to my user
folder on the server. It came up in my IMAP list as a folder called
'other users' with the folder of mail inside that. Couldn't get rid of
the bugger until the whole mail directory was rebuilt (using a utility
called mailbfr that I found online, since the built-in rebuild option
seemed to do nothing).
