Unhappy Postfix + sasl problem

Based on falko's Postfix + Mysql Tutorial for Centos 5.1 (http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...ysql-centos5.1) I was having good progress up until I had to test the SMTP server, here is where the problem starts. When I try to connect to SMTP server it fails (not firewall) and I can't seem to figure it out

Trying to connect to SMTP automatically results in a refused connection (not firewall).
[root@guinness postfix]# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
[root@guinness postfix]#
When I look at /var/log/maillog I get this:
[root@guinness postfix]# cat /var/log/maillog

Dec 31 03:31:04 guinness postfix/smtpd[3483]: warning: xsasl_cyrus_server_get_mechanism_list: no applicable SASL mechanisms

Dec 31 03:31:05 guinness postfix/master[14238]: warning: /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling
[root@guinness postfix]#
Here is my /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf file:
[root@guinness postfix]# cat /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf
pwcheck_method: authdaemond
log_level: 3
mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN
[root@guinness postfix]#
And finally here is my postfix /etc/postfix/main.cf contents:
[root@guinness postfix]# postconf -n
