You did add the users into the database right?
saslpasswd2 is the command you use for that.

I've never gotten anything but sasl to work, 
I'm going to send you some notes off-list that I compiled while
getting this to work.  There was a lot of dinking around to finally
get it up and running because the sasl bits are not well documented
and some authentication methods don't work (at least not for me).

I was able to get this to work with Suse 8.1 and 8.2 even though one
uses sasl and the other sasl2.

I'll send my notes by separate mail.
