I have RH ES 3.0 running postfix-2.0.11-4 with smtp authentication
and saslauthd service, all ok. I have in main.cf:
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
smtpd_client_restrictions = check_client_access
smtpd_sender_restrictions = reject_unknown_sender_domain,
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks,
the file /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf with:
mech_list: plain login
and /etc/pam.d/smtp with
auth required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
account required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
Problem: When I upgrade to postfix-2.0.16-13.RHEL3 the smtp
authenticacion failed, my clients are Outlook Express 6.0. I must to
regret to postfix-2.0.11-4 version.
I don't use sendmail, I only use Postfix.
But when I install the last version of sendmail that resolv a
similiar problem then Postfix 2.0.16-13 works ok. But I think that
don't be necessary install sendmail to postfix works.
postfix is using SASLv1, now. There was a problem with SASLv2 and LDAP.
Please have a look at:
This is also relevant for postfix.
