Oke I tried to reconfigure cyrus-sasl with the following options
--with-ldap=/etc/ldap (because I had to give a directory)
Everything was going fine, no errors during the installation but when I executed the command saslauthd -v
I get the same options.
authentication mechanisms: getpwent rimap shadow
I don't get it. Is it the version I use because with ldap is experimental in this version I read in the help.

you must have a "ldap capable" saslauthd
# saslauthd -v
authentication mechanisms: getpwent pam rimap shadow ldap
to obtain this, you have to configure --with-ldap
