SASL doesn't use system authentication (such as PAM/LDAP) by default. It 
uses it's own password database (similar to the way samba works).

Make sure that you run:

saslpasswd2 -c <username>

to add the user (and their password) to the SASL authentication database.

  "The world is not divided into sheeps and goats. Not all  things
  are black nor all things white. It is a fundamental of  taxonomy
  that nature rarely deals  with  discrete  categories.  Only  the
  human mind invents categories and  tries  to  force  facts  into
  separated pigeon-holes."
