you dont need to known user passwords to set sieve scripts.
Become the cyrus user if you can.
For each user :
- determine the directory for sieve scripts of the user
(in imapd.conf, see sievedir hashimapspool fulldirhash)
- mkdir -p the dir if not exist
- copy your script for the user in that dir (eg: s0.script)
- sievec s0.script s0.bc
- ln -s s0.bc defaultbc
- (if root) set ownership of the entire sieve hierarchy to the cyrus user
