I too have to disagree with this statement. It takes me about 5 minutes
to setup cyrus, and my configuration is way more complicated than simply
authenticating users against SQL database. The default cyrus-imapd
configuration since it become standard distro RPM in Fedora Core 3 was
very well choosen and works practically out of the box (all you need is
to do is to replace two procmail lines in sendmail.mc with three cyrus
related lines, would be nice if stock sendmail.mc containted comments
about that, and after that enable and start saslauthd service and off
you go). If total zero-admin is desired, enable auto create inbox on
user login option. And basically, that's it.
