SASL is used anyway, just in the trouble case it failed.

If you installed Cyrus-IMAPd by a package install all necessary
directories would have been created automatically. Although you have to
create each mailbox using cyradm, unless the autocreate patch is
configured and used.
You offer much too few information. Can we guess your OS is Fedora Core?
Provide detailed information about your Cyrus-IMAPd and Cyrus-SASL setup.
