Ive been looking on how to work cyrus imap with mysql and found two options:
cyrus pam with pam_mysql
cyrus sasl sql plugin
In the first one it look like the store can have the password encrypted MD5
The second one needs the passwords in the clear in the db
customer says they have a mysql db with md5 passwords in it.
Im still confused on how this should work, can anyone please give me
some insights on this regard
