Description Genghis Rios 2004-05-29 18:44:04 EDT
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, 
permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination

the file /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf   with:

pwcheck_method: saslauthd
mech_list: plain login

/etc/sysconfig/saslauthd  with:


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.
