Thanks in advance to all the ones that answered me!!!
I haven't solve the problem yet... :-(

My imapd.conf contains:

sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop
sasl_auxprop_plugin: sasldb
sasl_mech_list: plain login cram-md5 digest-md5



shows me all the users I inserted in SASL authentication system. 
If I try:
telnet localhost imap

0a100 login cyrus cyrus

I receive:

0a100 NO Login failed: user not found

and no message in /var/log/messages.
If I try:

testsaslauthd -u cyrus -p cyrus

in /var/log/messages I read:

Dec 15 17:12:01 server imap(pam_unix)[2565]: authentication failure; logname= 
uid=0 euid=0 tty= ruser= rhost=  user=cyrus
Dec 15 17:12:03 server saslauthd[2565]: do_auth         : auth failure: 
[user=cyrus] [service=imap] [realm=] [mech=pam] [reason=PAM auth error]

If I try:

saslpasswd2 -c cyrus

I receive:

Could not set secret for cyrus
saslpasswd2: requested change was not needed

cyradm localhost -u cyrus

write the following in /var/log/messages:

Dec 15 17:17:06 server perl: No worthy mechs found

and the followin in shell:

Login failed: user not found 
at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread-multi/Cyrus/IMAP/ 
line 118
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with  as cyrus

I'm using the same configuration files on a Mandrake 10 and Mandrake 10.1 and 
SuSE 9.2, and all the problems are on mdk 10.
On SuSE 9.2 I cannot use the deliver program to send mails to Cyrus from shell 
or procmail.
Could it be due for the same reason?

Thank you very very VERY MUCH!!!!
