$ grep allowplaintext /etc/imapd.conf
$ grep alllowplaintext /etc/postfix/main.cf
$ grep plain /etc/postfix/main.cf
$ grep text /etc/postfix/main.cf
all without printout

$ grep saslauthd_path /etc/imapd.conf
$ locate mux | grep saslauthd
The path is "/var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd/mux"
$ sudo nano /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf
adding following lines on the file:
mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN
$ sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart
* Stopping Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix [ ok ]
* Starting Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix [ ok ]
$ sudo /etc/init.d/saslauthd restart
Stopping SASL Authentication Daemon: saslauthd.
Starting SASL Authentication Daemon: saslauthd.
$ sudo /etc/init.d/cyrus2.2 restart
Stopping Cyrus IMAPd: cyrmaster.
Waiting for complete shutdown...
Starting Cyrus IMAPd: cyrmaster.
Start Evolution on local machine. Now users can send and receive mails
via/on the server.
