Configure PAM to authenticate imap, sieve, pop, etc. to mysql database.
Configure saslauthd to use PAM
Configure Cyrus to use saslauthd

In particular, this setup forces Cyrus to use PLAIN client
authentication. That means connections from users to Cyrus send
passwords in plaintext over the wire unless you set up Cyrus to use TLS
for client connections. Highly recommended.
