Default when saslauthd is running:

when its running I see (ps ax)

[root@ns5 saslauthd]# ps ax | grep sasl
23501 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -m /var/run/saslauthd -a shadow
23502 ? S 0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -m /var/run/saslauthd -a shadow
23503 ? S 0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -m /var/run/saslauthd -a shadow
23504 ? S 0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -m /var/run/saslauthd -a shadow
23506 ? S 0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -m /var/run/saslauthd -a shadow
23860 pts/3 S+ 0:00 grep sasl

occurs to me I should add that I've tried several changes in desperation. current postfix file end:
(I have tried to implement the sasl_passwd file as a simpler authentication method.
this pw file contains: vanguard:mysecretpasswd kozan:anothersecretpassword baylit:yetanotherpw

rebuilt with postmap. I had hoped that dovecot would just authenticate all mail from these domains with the user/pw given.
I found folks saying this worked fine, but I could get nothing authenticated at all!

at wits end!
Oh - I saw your references to smtp_ and others to smtpd_ before the lines so I duplicated some and had both smtpd_ and smtp_
why are there two sets of these variables anyway?
