    Hi List,

    I know questions for SASL are probably posted all the time, but I just
    can't find out why my configuration is not working. Maybe it's just a
    little mistake somewhere. I would be thankful for any hints.

    I compiled my postfix version 2.3.4 with following command:
    make makefiles CCARGS="-DUSE_SASL_AUTH -DHAS_MYSQL -I/usr/include/mysql
    -I/usr/include/sasl -DUSE_TLS" AUXLIBS=" -lsasl2 -lmysqlclient -lssl"

    I created a file named /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf with following
    contents:
    pwcheck_method: saslauthd
    mech_list: plain login digest-md5 cram-md5
    saslauthd_path: /var/run/saslauthd/mux
    autotransition: true
    log_level: 3

    I also tried auxprop and other methods, but that doesn't change
    anything, so I believe the file is not even read.

    The mailserver is offering
    250-AUTH NTLM LOGIN PLAIN DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5
    and my clients asks me for a password.

    Then in the log the following message appears:

    Jun 27 21:57:43 saturn postfix/smtpd[14068]: connect from
        unknown[78.54.29.161]
    Jun 27 21:57:43 saturn postfix/smtpd[14068]: warning:
        unknown[78.54.29.161]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed:
        authentication failure
    Jun 27 21:57:43 saturn postfix/smtpd[14068]: lost connection after AUTH
        from unknown[78.54.29.161]

    Now what can this "authentication failure" mean? I tried changing the
    contents of smtpd.conf but that doesn't change anything (I assume it is
    not read). Did I do something wrong at compilation time?

    Thanks

    Eddy
