Are you really sure? This is important for me.

/etc/defaults/saslauthd in Debian says:

# You must specify the authentication mechanisms you wish to use.
# This defaults to "pam" for PAM support, but may also include
# "shadow" or "sasldb", like this:
# MECHANISMS="pam shadow"

I want to use "pam ldap".
