Yes, you can avoid using the saslauthd. In this case you should choose
one from the rest of two authentication options - "auxprop" or
"pwcheck". Please, read the man for imapd.conf and look for
"sasl_pwcheck_method:" configuration options!

ptloader is responsible only for user authorization, not authentication!
