Hi, My mail server specifies its SASL mechanisms in desired order. The last one doesn't succeed for all users (CRAM-MD5). Authen::SASL::Perl tries them in reverse order, so it tries CRAM-MD5 first. This fails. If line 33 were: $a->_order <=> $b->_order instead of: $b->_order <=> $a->_order this would work. I'm not sure if there's a reason it's like this, but it fails in my case.

Authen::SASL tries mechanisms in order of security level, trying the most secure first. Maybe there is some other issue why CRAM-MD5 is failing for you if your server states that it supports it
