my /etc/saslauthd.conf was

ldap_servers: ldap://
ldap_filter: uid=%u

I modified it as suggested to

ldap_servers: ldap://
ldap_filter: %U@%r

After making the suggested modifications the mail gets delivered into a
hashed directory under /var/spool/imap/domain, but I still cannot log in
via webmail application such as squirrelmail.

the ldap log still shows the unrealmed uid login while I logged in
through the web interface with robin at
