there is a pam module in the more recent pam versions that does plain file
lookup of that sort of file for username password, I would have to STFW to
remember the name though something like pam_textfile

Or use one of the other mail servers available that is not tied to broken
things like cyrus. (I am biased against cyrus, if you want IMAP use courier,
if you want other services there are other daemons tha tdo all forms of
lookup and such without modification of code)
