Default The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft): sasl issues after power outage

Hopefully someone can help me here; I had a working server setup as per the Ubuntu 6.10 guide here (and thank you for an excellent guide, btw) but apparently there was a power outage here in the area (again) and now I'm unable to send mail; the error that comes up in /var/log/syslog is:

warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory
warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed
After a little searching through the forums I've determined that saslauthd isn't running (configs point to the correct dir and the dir exists, but no .pid file (or anything else in that dir for that matter), and no saslauthd listing in 'ps aux'), and since it was working up until the power outage my guess is there's a corrupt file or two somewhere, but I'm not sure how to go about troubleshooting from this point -- I thought about just "apt-get remove saslauthd" and just reinstalling it but apparently the ubuntu newbie in me kicked in at that point: saslauthd is part of another package or else I'm just typing it wrong.

If anyone has any ideas it'd be greatly appreciated!

On an unrelated note: can anyone tell me why every time we have a half second power outage here all of my machines -- even the m0n0wall setup on the *exact* same hardware setup as my ubuntu box -- seem to be fine, but the linux box seems to always be affected *and* messed up in some way (and before someone mentions it yes: I will be going out to get a UPS today, thank you!)?
