Thanks, is it then possible to use multiple authentication methods with 
saslauthd, such as ldap and pam/shadow?
What I am trying to do is make sendmail authenticate against a local OS 
account first, then and ldap account if no OS account exists.
Is this possible without breaking Cyrus, which uses saslauthd with the 
ldap authentication method.
