I'm not sure about "recommend", but we just use sasldb2. That gives us the
greatest flexibility as far as auth mechs are concerned. We offer PLAIN,
LOGIN (only over SSL/TLS), CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5 and NTLM. That's necessary
because of the huge variety of mailers that people are using. We sync
sasldb2 with our own user database for shell accounts with custom scripts.
Of course it would be nice to have only one centralized user database, but
with our very heterogeneous environment that's not really an option.
