sasldb password (qmail and sendmail processes are also active, so I'm not
100% sure). I tried to use saslpasswd to change passwords but with no
results (right passwords are still old passwords) and after adding a user
with "createmailbox" cyrus command and with saslpasswd that user is not
recognized from clients. Please, how may I do it?

I've already seen. sasl_pwcheck_method is sasldb. I see saslpasswd has some
options like "application" and "user domain". Do I have to use them? How can
I see what users are in sasldb?
