Hello guys!

I'm trying to make kmail work with imapd in FreeBSD-5.0RELEASESp7

1. I compiled imap-uw

	cd /usr/ports/mail/imap-uw
	make WITH_SSL_AND_PLAINTEXT=yes install clean

2. I included the following lines in my inetd.conf file:

pop3    stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/local/libexec/ipop3d  ipop3d
imap    stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/local/libexec/imapd   imapd
pop3s   stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/local/libexec/ipop3d  ipop3d
imaps   stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/local/libexec/imapd   imapd

and uncommnted the line:

shell   stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/libexec/rshd          rshd

then I restarted inetd:

	killall -HUP inetd

3. In the "old" days of FreeBSD 4.7, /etc/pam.conf should include:
and the new package says that THIS lines must be included in /etc/pam.conf

imap    auth    required
imap    account required      try_first_pass
imap    session required

Now, FreeBSD 5.0 now uses /etc/pam.d/imap to configure the last lines
so, I wrote:

auth    required
account required      try_first_pass
session required

in my /etc/pam.d/imap  file.

Now, pine complains saying:

Server disables LOGIN, no recognized SASL authenticator

what is the meaning of this?

What is the correct configuration I must set in
/etc/pam.d/imap  and /etc/pam.d/pop3  ???

Thanks in advance.
