Cyrus and dovecot are alternative imap/pop servers with incompatible
storage formats and program and configurations.   Cyrus is probably
more efficient with its own layout - dovecot uses more or less normal
mbox or maildirs.   Not sure how the saslauthd's relate - but it
sounds like your sendmail is configured for cyrus-sasl but dovecot
confuses it.

yum search cyrus     shows a bunch of components.
