I'm trying to create virtual users in cyrus-imapd-2.1.12 with sasl using
unixhierarchysep: yes in /etc/imapd.conf to create usernames like
user at What I did:

$ /usr/local/sbin/saslpasswd2 troex at
Again (for verification):
$ cyradm --user cyrus --auth cram-md5 --server
Password:> cm user/troex at> quit

then login fails and I get this in logs:
Nov 25 00:55:48 fury pop3d[27404]: badlogin: plaintext
troex at SASL(-13): user not found: checkpass failed
Seems like sasldb cannot handle usernames with '@' because if i create
user like: 'troex' everything works fine.

 admins: cyrus
configdirectory: /var/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop
sendmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
sievedir: /var/imap/sieve
unixhierarchysep: yes

$ /usr/local/sbin/sasldblistusers2
cyrus at cmusaslsecretOTP
cyrus at userPassword
cyrus at userPassword
cyrus at cmusaslsecretOTP
troex at userPassword
troex at cmusaslsecretOTP

I can't understand where is error... what I did wrong?
