SMTP AUTH, SASL and Sendmail not getting along


Ok, I'm trying to switch from pop-before-smtp over to SMTP auth with RedHat Fedora linux running sendmail. The testsaslauthd returns success when i type in a userid/password I'm running saslauthd like this:

/usr/sbin/saslauthd -m /var/run/saslauthd -a shadow

Currently my senmail.mc file (as far as the smtp auth goes) looks like this:

define(`confAUTH_OPTIONS', `A')dnl
dnl TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
dnl define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
dnl TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
dnl define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl

(i've tried all 3 sets they all return the same problem). My Sendmail.conf file looks like:

pwcheck_method: saslauthdb

And sendmail doesnt allow me to authenticate either by telnetting to port 25 or by using a clinet like Outlook or mozilla or whatever and setting it to login to the server for outgoing mail. I've set the sendmail loglevel=14 and attempted to authenticate to port 25 and it’s giving me this message:

Dec 2 16:46:46 BigBox sendmail[16094]: NOQUEUE: connect from root@localhost

My software versions are:

cyrus-sasl-2.1.15-6
cyrus-sasl-md5-2.1.15-6
cyrus-sasl-gssapi-2.1.15-6
cyrus-sasl-devel-2.1.15-6
cyrus-sasl-plain-2.1.15-6


Does anyone have any ideas…
