no answer to your question, but I'm using CRAM-MD5 for sending mails to
a sasl enabled MTA-Server and it works fine.

$ pkg_info|grep evolution
evolution-2.0.3 An integrated mail, calendar and address book
Are you trying to use it for sending email or for receiving email? Ah,
one more thing: I disabled plain-text authentication on the MTA-Server.
