I am trying to allow people to have mailboxes on my SuSE 8.1
system via Cyrus IMAP/POP3.

I am using standard component versions that come with SuSE 8.1, so they
all should be fairly new.

I would like my IMAP/POP3 users to just be setup in Cyrus so that I
don't have to actually create real accounts.

So I figure I could add users with the Cyradm tool and store the password
information in the SASL database by using the saslpasswd command.

I am confused about how to setup up the imapd.conf file. What auth method
etc do I use? auxprop? plain? sasldb? saslauthd?

And there appears to be only a few options for auth methods in saslauthd.
What method do I tell saslauthd to use?

To authenticate and store password info in the sasldb do I need to run the

This is my first time looking at this stuff, so go easy on me please. :-)
