I am using saslauthd to control access to a mail server running SMATP 
AUTH. Can I check for the existance or lack of existance of a ldap 
attribute using saslauthd?

Here is what I have in /etc/saslauthd.conf now:

ldap_auth_method: bind
ldap_servers: ldap://
ldap_search_base: ou=people,dc=example,dc=ca
ldap_use_sasl: no
ldap_method: simple

If I add a line such as:

ldap_filter: myNewUser=true

I would have expected the authentication to succeed if the user has the 
myNewUser attribute set to true. That doesn't work, that's my first 
problem. The second problem is that once this is working I need to invert 
the meaning in the sense that users with myNewUser=true should not
