      Hi,
      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
      smtp, smtps
      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 )
      Regards and happy new year
