Re: Sendmail, saslauthd, AUTH DIGEST-MD5 and /etc/shadow ?

Following Sebastians reply I'm more confused than ever.

The way I read the manual (here: to use sasldb I have
to change pwcheck_method=shadow to pwcheck_method=auxprop in

Is that correct?

If so, then presumably I have to change MECH=shadow in
/etc/sysconfig/saslauthd, but what to ?
"saslauthd -v" returns: authentication mechanisms: getpwent kerberos5 pam
rimap shadow ldap httpform.

There is no mention of sasldb in the above return. The installed default was
MECH=pam, which I changed to get where I am.

I need to get DIGEST-MD5 working while keeping PLAIN which already works:

Assuming Sebstians assertion is correct, can I just duplicate authorization
and/or authentication data in sasldb2 ?

If I have to change pwcheck_method (as above) what about the MECH parameter in
/etc/sysconfig/saslauthd ?

Can I just specify MECH=pam ?

Thanks for your patience.
