Plain text password between frontend and backend

I would like to configure a backend server and a frontend server(with
mupdate server). I use LDAP authentication(SASLAUTHD) in both backend
and frontend servers.
I am able to authenticate directly to the backend and select inbox.
When I connect through the frontend, I am able to authenticate but not
select inbox. It throws an error
"couldn't authenticate to backend server: no mechanism available"--log.
"a2 NO Server(s) unavailable to complete operation"--command line
I want to send a plain text password as the network between the frontend
and backend server is safe. I am trying this in cyrus-imapd-2.2.12.
Would this not be supported in this version? If it does support, is
there any configuration that has to be done..?
The frontend connects to the backend sees capability.
