For sure it's possible. 

I use a setup with all user
informations (including encrypted passwords) stored in a mysql database
and have postfix (the MTA) as well as dovecot (the IMAP server) checking
the password against that database. 

My roundcube installation uses the
password plugin to change password directly in the mysql database. 

trick is to have only one user repository for all your usage whatever
backend is used (flat file, database, ldap or whatever).
