Your imap server can't connect to the authentication daemon. Is saslauthd running ?

Saslauthd only does the interface between your IMAP server and the backend that contains your users (mysql ?). You need to make sure that the connection between saslauthd and mysql works, that mysql contains your users, etc etc...

You should take a closer look at

testsaslauthd - test utility for the SASL authentication server
