comment Do I need to receive the private key from VeriSign?
The CSR contains the Public Key (certificate) that the private key pairs with, so Verisign doesn't need to make any choice. They just sign it with their own private key, and that's what the resulting SSL certificate is. There's a pretty good explanation of the CSR process on wikipedia. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Certificate_signing_request

Aaaannnd it turns out that's the magic question after all. My /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf was missing the !include conf.d/*.conf line from the bottom of it, thus never having a chance to read the auth_mechanisms I specified. Thank you gentlemen for all your help and support.

I noticed the lack of that specification as i was looking through the results of doveconf -n ... but the auth_mechanisms = plain login is indeed in my /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf. So what would keep the settings in that file from being picked up?

Thanks for the tip Daff. I've updated the question to include links to both of those.

I edited my question to include both types of configurations that I've tried.

I've been through that documentation... If I try TCP, I get "warning: SASL: Connect to inet:127.0.0.1:12345 failed: Connection refused fatal: no SASL authentication mechanisms" and if I try the unix socket version, it doens't give me any errors, but i still only get "Plain" mechanism offered.
