The program call
saslauthd -a shadow
works, after I had created the directories /var/state and
Then I changed the contents of Sendmail.conf into
The passwords are "shadowed" so it should work.
After rebuildind and restart sendmail, I tried to send an mail using
authentication and got
the same error , giving in logall:
Could not open db
I also changed the contents of Sendmail.conf into
It gives the same error.
What I already found out is that I don't have /etc/sasldb2.

Thank you in forward
