How are you running cyradm; what's the full command-line?  It is often
the case the you have to manually specify '--auth <authtype>'; cyradm
doesn't seem to be as intelligent as MTAs about selecting the right
authentication mechanism or maybe MTAs try all of them until they find
one that works; I haven't looked at the problem in detail.  I find
'--auth login' almost always works, unless you have disabled plain-text
