Thanks :) You are welcome.

Hu? This can not work. So I wonder how you are able to authenticate with
your IMAP/IMAPs client.

pam is no SASL MECH. With "sasl_mech_list" you have to have entries like
"PLAIN" or "LOGIN" or "CRAM-MD5". That are MECHs. And the saslauthd,
which comes with SASLv2, has different possibilities to contact which is
holding the AUTH data. "saslauthd -v" shows you what is possible with
your saslauthd. But that are not the MECHs.
In short: change "sasl_mech_list" back to "PLAIN" in the imapd.conf and
things will work again after a service restart.
