I saw your question the first time. I answered it. Simply reposting your query 
(three times in succession) does *not* make me inclined to help you any more.

However, I will repeat again what you need to know:

1. Make sure you are running courier-imap-4.x with courier-authlib-0.5x. If 
you are not, then upgrade. If you built from ports, then upgrade your ports 
collection first if you need to. Follow the instructions in the FreeBSD 
handbook to do that.

2. Next, follow the instructions for debugging courier authentication here:
Make sure you implement the part which tells you to make sure you are logging 
syslog messages at 'debug' level. Under FreeBSD these messages usually end up 
in /var/log/debug.log

3. You will get detailled information in those logs showing exactly how the 
mysql connection is made, the query sent, and the response returned.

4. When you have all of that, post here again. Until then, please ask someone 
else for help (or pay a consultant to help you)


P.S. There is also good advice at
If the answer you got before was in any way incomplete or not understandable, 
then say what you tried, what was missing, or what you didn't understand. If 
you just blindly repost, you can expect a blunt rebuttal.
