Postfix allowing connections w/o authentication
 
After a clean installation (Ubuntu 8.04 and Ispconfig 3.0.1.6) i realized that postfix is allowing connections without authentication... is this normal? wasn't it supposed to use the same auth as pop or imap?

... help

you have to set it up to use auth.

SMTP-AUTH is on by default. There are two scenarios where no authentication is needed: you send from a client that is listed in mynetworks in /etc/postfix/main.cf, or you send to a recipient that is on the server. Authentication is needed only if you send from a client not listed in mynetworks and to a recipient on a remote server.
