What does the log say when you try to authenticate?
Is saslauthd actually up and running?

saslauthd is running and the only errors I get are:

Mar 24 11:42:31 ein postfix/smtpd[12865]: warning: SASL authentication
failure: Can only find author/en (no password)
Mar 24 11:42:31 ein postfix/smtpd[12865]: warning:
unknown[]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed

Are you checking the login with /etc/passwd or with sasldb?

What sort of auth mechanism did you set up for sasl?
content of /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf?
content of /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd?

Which packages are installed?
rpm -qa | grep -i sasl

What is the output of
telnet localhost 25
ehlo localhost.localdomain
Especially the AUTH line?
