The "No worthy mechs found" message is due to postfix trying to talk to 
via unencrypted channel.

It makes no sense to encrypt localhost traffic, but Cyrus insists on it...

Even `cyradm --server localhost' does not work "out of the box" for this 

I had to add "allowplaintext: yes" to imapd.conf before things started 
to work

You may need something similar.
