    I'm using sasldb2 for authenticating users for my Cyrus mailserserves.
    The sasldb2 file is shared by all the machines by storing it on a SAN
    filesystem.

    Since saslpasswd2 adds the hostname to the username by default, I
    specify my domain when adding users:

    saslpasswd2 -c -u domain.tld username

    The problem is when I try to authenticate to the IMAP server using
    Mozilla, it sends the user name as username at mailserver dot domain dot tld dot
    That username is not in the sasldb, so then the user cannot authenticate.

    Is there anyway to fix this on the server side? I don't know if it can
    be fixed in Mozilla, and even if it could be, I can't expect the users
    to know how to reconfigure Mozilla.
