Hi Nix,

Thanks for the reply. I've tested IMAP using the imtest utility and it
still reports the same error over and over again.  I thought I would add
some more info about my problem

I'm using IMAP -> saslauthd -> pam_mysql -> mysql

As stated before, it works with pop3 and smtp-auth, just not with imap
at all.

If anybody can help out, t'would be appreciated.

I'm not sure what this means. Cyrus IMAP has a utility called "imtest", 
which can test IMAP authentication. See "imtest -h" for options.
