sasl_checkpass - Check a plaintext password
int sasl_checkpass(sasl_conn_t *conn,
const char *user,
const char *pass,
sasl_checkpass() will check a plaintext password. This is needed for
protocols that had a login method before SASL (for example the LOGIN
command in IMAP). The password is checked with the pwcheck_method See
sasl_callbacks(3) for information on how this parameter is set.
sasl_checkpass returns an integer which corresponds to one of the fol-
lowing codes. SASL_OK indicates that the authentication is complete.
All other return codes indicate errors and should either be handled or
the authentication session should be quit. See sasl_errors(3) for
meanings of return codes.
