1. What does your saslauthd.conf file look like (I don't know where it
is in Mandrake; possibly /usr/local/etc/saslauthd.conf or
/etc/saslauthd.conf or somewhere else under /etc)?

2. If you want to use only sasldb for authentication, why use
saslauthd? Why not use the auxprop method with the sasldb plugin?
