I suggest you build cyrus-imapd 2.2.4 because of numerous ptloader ldap
fixes/enhacements. Read the imapd.conf man page for the ldap related
options. Your other option is to use a different authentication mechanism
such as unix. See cyrus-imapd/doc/overview.html for more. You will need
to recompile cyrus-imapd when you change authentication mechanisms.
If you want more flexibility in choosing pts module and authentication
mechanism at runtime, you can try my patch at
