Cyrus imap will offer all available and initializable SASL authentication
plugins it can find (see pluginviewer for that list). In the case where you
have a plugin installed that you don't wish to offer, you can restrict the
list of mechanisms with the sasl_mech_list option.

If you're depending on saslauthd for authentication, you shouldn't be
offering anything other than plain and login:

sasl_mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN
