Default Sorry Iam back again

Hi,
I am sorry, but I am back again, since the mail part does not work even after a complete fresh install.
On my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Mail server, I am having problems to create a user account.

I am using Thunderbird, which insists to do the configuration by itself, however, fails to authenticate the username or the password or both. Both do exist!

Here is an excerpt from the mail error log:
Code:
Sep 11 08:58:02 mail dovecot: auth: Fatal: Unknown database driver 'mysql'
Sep 11 08:58:02 mail dovecot: master: Error: service(auth): command startup failed, throttling

and here is an excerpt from the Mail Log:

Interestingly, I don't try to login POP3, in fact I disabled POP3 login for this account.
Not knowing much about the foregoings behind the scene, I think, I will wipe the entire setup and start over again. Webserver / Mail Server / DNS1 and DNS2.....

Maybe not!

Perhaps I forgot to install sasl2-bin and what goes along with it?
After all, I used the Debian Squeeze tutorial....

When I re-built the mail server the Master did already have two Web sites running . Perhaps the database on the master, got discombobulated and might have entries that don't work with the newer ones,or simply double entries?

Well, any help is appreciated!
