I think the "learn passwords" configuration option combined with the clear text
passwords, would do exactly what you need. The learn password option works with
qmails pop3 (please correct me if I'm wrong)...though I'm unsure about dovecot.
It's been a long time since I've used that option.

yes, i did. i tried it without this flag and it was easy to point out that you
are in right. thank you.
so i think there is no possibility to bring non-plaintext authetication
methods working afterwards, i mean for existing mailboxes, isn't it ?
