The main question is what do you mean by "in the same domain"? What is a
domain for you? Windows NT Domain, Windows ADS, DNS Domain,...?
SASL support's several mechanisms for authentication and they can bind
to several authentication systems:
PLAIN ->[auxprop(SASL DB, SQL), saslauthd(SASL DB, LDAP, Kerberos4,
GSSAPI, SIA, PAM,...)]
DIGEST-MD5 -> SASL-DB
CRAM-MD5 -> SASL-DB
EXTERNAL (this is a TLS/SSL wrapper for another mech)
