INBOX has special meaning in IMAP, probably even for an administrator.
If your admin user is 'cyrus', then you may have a mailbox named
'user.cyrus' that appears as INBOX from within cyradm.

Try 'ctl_mboxlist -d' to get a second opinion on what the mailbox name is.
If you can't delete the mailbox by referencing it as 'INBOX' or as
'user.cyrus', then take a look at the 'cyr_dbtool' utility for manually
removing the mailbox entry from your mailboxes database.
