Hi I just installed courier imap. I had some problems as well.(Mine was
postfix -> maildir related). I saw several things about authenication
when I was googeling around. It seems like your problem is that Cyrus
does not authenicate you properly.
Do a telnet or something to reproduce message and at the same time in a
console you can do:
tail -f -s 3 -n 20 /var/log/mail.log
See if you get any wiser then helps.
