Hi Ken,

actually IMAP is authenticating against SASL.

I compiled sasl 2.1.9 like:
./configure --prefix=/usr/cyrus-sasl --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-login 
--disable-checkapop --disable-krb4 --disable-gssapi 
--with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl --with-saslauthd=/var/state/saslauthd 
And in sasldb/Makefile line 245

   since it was not "making"

I'm starting the daemeon like:
/usr/cyrus-sasl/sbin/saslauthd -a pam -O /etc/saslauthd


--enable-login --disable-checkapop --disable-krb4 --disable-gssapi 
--with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl --with-saslauthd=/var/state/saslauthd

I did exactly the same as with version 2.1.17 (old Server)

Can you give me any hint?
