I am still trying to get sendmail working with sasl for smtp auth.

I'm currently getting: AUTH failure (LOGIN): no mechanism available (-4)

When I telnet to port 25, the 250 list shows AUTH is there:
250-AUTH CRAM-MD5 PLAIN LOGIN

I have /usr/lib/sasl setup with all the proper permissions:
marcos# ls -la
total 259
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel .
drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel Sendmail.conf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libanonymous.la
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libanonymous.so -> libanonymous.so.1.17
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libanonymous.so.1.17
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libcrammd5.la
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libcrammd5.so -> libcrammd5.so.1.19
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libcrammd5.so.1.19
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel libdigestmd5.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libdigestmd5.la
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel liblogin.la
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel liblogin.so -> liblogin.so.0.7
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel liblogin.so.0.7
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libplain.la
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libplain.so -> libplain.so.1.16
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libplain.so.1.16
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libscrammd5.la
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libscrammd5.so -> libscrammd5.so.1.8
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel libscrammd5.so.1.8
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel saslpassword.conf

# cat Sendmail.conf
pwcheck_method: shadow

# cat saslpassword.conf
pwcheck_method: shadow

Reading through all the various documents on the web, I've seen vague
references to: /etc/mail/auth/auth-info & /etc/mail/default-auth-info

What goes in these files or are they not really needed since I see
mention of being deprecated.

Is there anything here that I've missed that you guys may need help with
to help me figure out this problem?

I've been through http://www.sendmail.org/~ca/email/auth.html And have
googled, and still haven't found anything that can help me.

Thanks,
