Rather than using telnet, use imtest which can do the proxy
authentication that you need. Do something like this:
imtest -t '' -m plain -a cyrus -u <user> <servername>
When prompted, enter the password for cyrus (alternatively, use the -w
option to put the password on the command line).
This will use the PLAIN mechanism under a TLS layer to authenticate you
as cyrus, but authorize you as whatever user that you want to have
subscribe to mailboxes.
