I'm using the package from the repository of debian lenny, ie:
cyrus-admin-2.2; cyrus-clients-2.2; cyrus-common-2.2;cyrus-imapd-2.2 and
all of them in the version 2.2.13-14+lenny3.

I checked the authentication from frontend to backend with the command
imtest and is OK, no problem.

Check /var/log/auth.log on the backend for errors.

I will try to install cyrus from source. Maybe this error be a bug of the
debian package.
