I am running cyrus-imapd-2.2.10 on RHEL 4 system.

We have created a user test with passwd test and we want to this user to
receive email. 

When we do a "telnet <ip> 110 and then give the USER and PASS commands , we
are notable to login using the user id and passwd. Error given is : -[ERR]
AUTH Invalid Login. 


The logs show an error "unknown password identifier" 


Here's the imapd.conf  file : 


configdirectory: /var/lib/imap

partition-default: /var/spool/imap

admins: cyrus root

sievedir: /var/lib/imap/sieve

sendmail: /opt/postfix/sbin/sendmail

hashimapspool: true


sasl_mech_list: PLAIN

tls_cert_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem

tls_key_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem

tls_ca_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt


I have tried replacing the sasl_pwcheck_method with shadow and unix


How can we configure support for /etc/passwd file, so that the same can be
checked ? 

Do we need to create Maildir in every users home directory ? 


Kindly help.
