Email not working
 
Everything else is dialed in but I can't get the email working.

Fedora 8 followed the perfect server howto.

I can't even email from one account on the domain to another. Need to get this up and running asap. Appreciate any help team!

THanks in advance

What are you using to test? At what point does it fail? Is your server kicking back errors?

What does your mail.log report?

postfix/smtpd[19761]: warning: 24-197-228-230.static.stpt.wi.charter.com[24.197.228.230]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: authentication failure

lotsa this.

messages has similar errors with saslauthd getting a PAM error. I do have all the users setup in /etc/passwd though.
Any ideas?

Have you already tried this to confirm your sasl config is good:

Also- check this thread.

Code:

telnet localhost 25

ehlo localhost
250-'my.server.com'
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY
250-ETRN
250-STARTTLS
250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN
250-AUTH=LOGIN PLAIN
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
250-8BITMIME
250 DSN

seems to check out compared to the howto...

willieray25 16th September 2008 23:47

wait there is something that might be choking it out. Not sure

ehlo localhost gives

250-lianli.mydomain1.com
...
...

but i'm trying to setup emails for mydomain2.com
I have several domains on this one ip and i have installed a cacert on server2.com

any help?

Not exactly.

Did you actually try to authenticate a session via telnet localhost 25?

Try the telnet localhost at port 25, and go through to try to authenticate as in that link- line begins with:

AUTH PLAIN...

If you can successfully authenticate there, I'd try another mail client.

using the perl script i was able to authenticate using `internal` names
e.g.

web2_sales2 gives authentication success

but not with actual emails
sales2@mydomain2.com
or just
sales2

fails...

thanks again for your help!

Br8knitOFF 17th September 2008 00:44

Then you're good to go.

web2_sales2 is the user name that email account needs to use to authenticate...

//Todd

I've sent emails to sales2@mydomain2.com and web2_sales2@mydomain2.com and nothing appears in roundcube. i'm not receiving or sending email via the server.
