Actually i had to install from source, which worked out fine after i 
installed the mysql-devel rpm.  I am now getting this error:

Jul 18 12:48:14  PAM-warn[7955]: function=[pam_sm_authenticate] 
service=[imap] terminal=[<unknown>] user=[nick.smith] ruser=[<unknown>] 
Jul 18 12:48:14  saslauthd[7955]: DEBUG: auth_pam: pam_authenticate 
failed: User not known to the underlying authentication module
Jul 18 12:48:14  saslauthd[7955]: do_auth         : auth failure: 
[user=nick.smith] [service=imap] [] [mech=pam] 
[reason=PAM auth error]

So it seems its not authenticating correctly i think, but i am unsure 
how to proceed at this point, im sure the user/pass im using is correct.

Any Ideas?
