I have tried that as well before I asked for help, however systemd refuses to accept this as the "-d" keeps saslauthd in foreground.
Systemd kills the process after a minute as systemd cannot see that required PID's.

I can also see that saslauth logs when started normally, the logging is just NOT enough.
I want to increase the verbosity so I can see what is going on.

For example it does not seem to log the failed username.

thanks anyway.
