Problem with Postfix
Hi everybody, i have installed a Mail Server with virtual users using Debian Etch, all went fine except that when i try to send and email the server ask for the user and password over and over, i enabled the logging for mysql and the log is the follow:

090617 20:04:30 9 Connect mail_admin@localhost on mail
9 Init DB mail
9 Query SELECT password FROM users WHERE email = 'orvux'

Then i have changed in the mail client (evolution,outlook) the username to:

(Yes, double and the email send fine, asking for the password one time only, and the server logs:

090617 20:42:50 17 Connect mail_admin@localhost on mail
17 Init DB mail
17 Query SELECT password FROM users WHERE email = ''
17 Quit

I have searched in all the files and the only one which contains this query is the:

i have changed the query to:
sql_select: select password from users where email = '%u@%d'

but nothing have changed, i hope somebody can help me, i have almost a week with this error and i don't know what more to do...

Thanks in advance.

Please double-check all your configuration files, maybe you made a typo somewhere.

Hi Falko thanks for your reply, really i have rechecked all the config files but i don't know what is wrong, all seems fine.

Did you double-check all the mysql*.cf files?

Hi falko, i found the solution, for a very strange reason i omited to download, patch and compile the postfix source code to create the debian packages, then after doing it all is working very good.
