Hi IM trying to install the Cyrus package

But IM not able to connect with the cyradm program,it gives this error
"application-specific initialization failed: authentication failed"

 I have followed the instructions in all the docs and haven't found the
problem yet. First I thought it was a problem with rights on files or
directorys but everything is by the book.

I have tried to search the mailing list archives and could not find anything
that could help me..

Here is a part of my logfile...

Jul 23 18:17:40 spaceman imapd[22869]: badlogin: localhost[]
plaintext theguy cannot connect to pwcheck server

The manual suggested that I would check the rights and I have done this and
they are by the book ?, I would be most gratefull for any hints or

Please respond to <>

Regards Patrik Astrom
