Replication problem

I'm in the middle of trying to set up replication.  However, I keep 
running into a problem.

The replication error I'm getting on the replica is this if I don't 
specify a sync_authname and sync_password:

  syncserver[7682]: starttls: TLSv1 with cipher AES256-SHA (256/256 bits 
new) no authentication

I get this error if I'm specifying a sync_authname and sync_password:

  badlogin: [] DIGEST-MD5 [SASL(-13): 
user not found: no secret in database]

How can I change what sync_server uses for its authentication?  I want 
it to either use LDAP or the local passwd/shadow files.  It obviously 
keeps trying to use DIGEST-MD5, in which case it would have to look for 
a md5 file in a particluar location, but I don't see how to specify that 

I tried setting auth_mech and sasl_auth_mech to be "unix" in the 
/etc/imapd.conf but that doesn't change anything.

Can anyone help me?
