Cyrus-imapd Question

Hopefully this is the right forum for my question...

I'm new to sendmail (been using qmail) and it's running good. I see that' i'm getting mail if I type:


anyway, i'm trying to set up horde (newest versions of horde and imp) but when i do the test (/horde/imp/test.php) it's saying that i can't connect.

I basically narrowed it down to cyrus not working properly.

I tryied looking for an online doc but didn't find one that can help me out on my problem.

I can telnet into port 143 but when i type:

login username password
it can't log in.

even when i do this:

imtest -m login -p imap localhost
and enter the passwd for cyrus, it's doesn't login.

it returns:

C: L01 LOGIN root {10}
S: + go ahead
C: <omitted>
S: L01 NO Login failed: authentication failure
Authentication failed. generic failure
Security strength factor: 0

I guess what my question is

How can i change the password for cyrus?

I tried

passwd cyrus
saslpasswd cyrus

Any help will be appreciated.
