i have postfix, saslauthd , mysql, dovecot running on
many servers ( suse 10.1), i have no problem, using
outlook express, outlook, thunderbird
( latest versions )
whatever pop3, imap, imaps, pop3s
with virtual domain postfixadmin
so in my eyses problems are a configure issue
i configured saslauthd to ask imap dovecot with plaintext passwords
( plain is not not nice but needed for other stuff in my case )
