The configuration is with your mailserver software.  When someone  
connects the first thing it does, after exchanging HELO or EHLO  
greetings, is advertise its capabilities.  Your server is advertising  
cram-md5. so roundcube is using it.  If your server cannot auth via  
cram-md5, it should not advertise it.
