after a quick look on the website you mentioned, i saw no point where
'saslauthd' gets installed.
my first dumb question: did you install it?
if you have installed security/cyrus-sasl2-saslauthd, you should have
'/usr/local/sbin/testsaslauthd'. please use this tool to check for the
correct operation of 'saslauthd'.
the website also mentioned that you have to set 'sasl_saslauthd_flags="-a
sasldb"' in /etc/rc.conf, but if you want to authenticate against system
accounts, this setting is completely wrong. you should either set
'sasl_saslauthd_flags="-a pam"' (this is the default) or
'sasl_saslauthd_flags="-a getpwent"' to authenticate against system
accounts. i never tried the pam and getpwent variants as i use ldap to
hope this helps a litlle bit.
The beginning is the most important part of the work.
