  which you didn't find because it isn't an imap option, but a sasl option
  (see doc/sysadmin.html in the cyrus-sasl tree), and prepending sasl_ to
  it in the imapd.conf file simply passes that option on to sasl, from the
  imapd.conf man page:
         Any other SASL option can be set by preceeding it  with
         "sasl_".   This  file  overrides the SASL configuration

  The inter-relation between all of this is non-trivial, but it isn't
  random, and it all does work in the end.

  Good luck.
