I think better solution is to define list of default folders per domain. And when new account is created web-cyradm will create and subscribe this folders after mailbox and quota creation.

No patches for cyrus-imapd will be required.

On http://email.uoa.gr/projects/cyrus/autocreate/ there is an autocreate patch for cyrus-imapd. This patch makes the following features available:

- Auto creation of user's INBOX
- Auto creation of user's INBOX subfolders such as Spam, Sent, Drafts...
- Auto subscribe to created folders or public folders,
- Auto creation of sieve-scripts, such as for spam-filtering

All these features do only work when the user's INBOX does not exist AND the user logs in first time or a message is sent to him.

As web-cyradm creates the user's INBOX during creating a mailbox with the web interface, the patch's functionalities do not work.

When web-cyradm would not create the INBOX by itself, IMO there would be a problem with quota setup of mailboxes etc...

Possible solution could be:
web-cyradm creates the user in the sql-database, then sends a predefined welcome-mail to the account so that the mailbox is created by cyrus-imapd and then it sets the quota on the mailbox.
