Looks like the user that is running cyradm does not have permission to
open it's user db.

Again here the log seems to suggest that the user - possibly cyradm could
not open the user db

If this is where the information is kept then perhaps you would either
need to change the permissions here or run your imap program as root
which is probably not the optimal setup.

Check the permissions out and see what happens.
