Cyrus SASL supports auto_transition (sasl_auto_transition in
If enabled, and authenticating using PLAIN or LOGIN, you can have
your daemon write all usernames and passwords, in cleartext, to
an auxprop store backend such as /etc/sasldb2.
That should be true of Cyrus IMAPd, Sendmail or any other daemon
which calls Cyrus SASL during authentication.
You can also configure the daemon to include saslauthd in the
pwcheck_method/sasl_pwcheck_method configuration option, which
will give you the ability to authenticate to a (local) passwd file.
