setup smtp specify it after testsaslauthd.

# testsaslauthd -u user -p password -s smtp

So /etc/pam.d/smtp will be used.

A "size error" from testsaslauthd? It makes no difference if you use shadow 
instead of pam from testsaslauthd. The only part which changes something in

saslauthd and sends the 4 values to it. username, password, realm and
