doesn't seem to handle it with testsaslauthd or as a Postfix auth daemon.

I can't reproduce this problem while using the PAM backend. Which saslauthd
backend are you using? If relevant, what sasl configuration is your imap
server using?

Both of these work for me:

testsaslauthd -u username -p 'test\1234'
testsaslauthd -u username -p test\\1234

Where the password is:


Saslauthd at the smtp server uses RIMAP as the backend, and the remote imap server to which it connects (Dovecot) does not use saslauthd, it uses LDAP. As I said before, this imap server can understand backslashes in the password, since I successfully authenticated on it using telnet.

I can reproduce the problem while using the rimap backend.

I've filed the following bug report:

Also, saslauthd has an ldap backend you may want to use, as a work around.
See doc/LDAP_SASLAUTHD in the sasl source for configuration documentation.
