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.
