Hi all,

Not sure where to report this the #irc channel recommended I reach out here.

The Fedora documentation bellow seems out of date as of at least Fedora Core 18 (Currently 22) .

yum has been replaced with dnf as of FC18[1]

yum install cyrus-imapd cyrus-sasl cyrus-sasl-plain
should be
dnf install cyrus-imapd cyrus-sasl cyrus-sasl-plain

and service and chkconfig have been replaced with systemctl[2]

# service saslauthd start
Starting saslauthd:                                        [  OK  ]
# chkconfig saslauthd on
should be

# systemctl enable cyrus-imapd
# systemctl start cyrus-imapd

I’m going to be upgrading / re-installing a FC22 server, I’ll be more than happy to update the documents or submit updates as needed. Just let me know
