Creating master user for Dovecot

This is based on the the dovecot wiki -

The ff: will be added or appended at /etc/dovecot and for this, am using dovecot-1.0.7-2.el5

auth default {
 passdb passwd-file {
        args = /etc/dovecot/passwd.masterusers
        master = yes

and the entry for  /etc/dovecot/passwd.masterusers contains the ff: 


So testing if it works, telnet the server.

telnet 143

[user@servertest ~]$ telnet 143
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK Dovecot ready.
a login username*master mypassword
a OK Logged in.

When using imap client, the username that will be use is username*master.
