IMAP Authentication Problem


i setup my postfix server to use dovecot using this guide:
http://postfix.wiki.xs4all.nl/index....IMAP_and_MySQL

Now everything works, i can send and it gets mapped into the correct folder but i am unable to authenticate to the server.

I am using dovecot, not sassl2, or courier-imap.

Now when i telnet this is what i see:
Quote:
# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
220 localhost ESMTP Postfix
EHLO localhost
250-localhost
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY
250-ETRN
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
250-8BITMIME
250 DSN
i do not see any
Quote:
250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN
250-AUTH=LOGIN PLAIN
So obviously it's not setup properly. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

after furthur investigation the content of postconf -a did not output dovecot. So i guess i recompile with dovecot support.
