Hi trichard,

try this:
imtest -u test -a test -t '' localhost
(after the -t those are 2 single-quotes.)

At the end of a lot of diagnostics, it should ask for your password.
type it in and hit <ENTER>. If it says "Authenticated", you are
connected and in; if, on the other hand, it says "No Authentication
failed", you are not. If you did not authenticate, hit CTRL-D and add
"-m plain" to the command above bofore "localhost" and try again.

If you do authenticate, (there is no prompt, the imapd just waits)
type:
A01 select inbox

This should return characteristics about the inbox.

If you are not able to authenticate, put the following line in your
/etc/imapd.conf after sasl_pwcheck_method:
sasl_auxprop_plugin: sasldb

and try again.

Let me know what it says.

Mike.
