You need to make sure that $CRYPT in the file config.inc.php
is set to md5.

Look here - http://www.delouw.ch/linux/Postfix-Cyrus-Web-cyradm-HOWTO/html/web-cyradm-config.html

Crypted passwords

Web-cyradm supports the storage of encrypted passwords. I strongly suggest the use of encryption. There are three methods supported at the moment: Unix-compatible (crypt), md5 and MySQL. The Unix-compatible encryption allows you to import encrypted passwords from an existing /etc/shadow. This is the preferred option. 

Unfortunately, MySQL uses a proprietary encryption method which is only available when using MySQL. I'm currently thinking about dropping support for MySQL crypt, because it only works with MySQL and makes a migration to another database impossible. As soon as there is a method available to re-engineer the MySQL crypt on PHP there will be a solution (Help needed in programming, legal constraints?) 

Check the variable $CRYPT in the file config.inc.php. Value »plain« means no encryption, »crypt« means Shadow compatible encryption, mysql means MySQL encryption.

Yes, mail users are shell users too.
But question is, how to migrate MD5 hash passwords from /etc/shadow to 
mysql, if I wish to use web-cyradm and sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop ?

Thanks, Mitja
