Help with new install
 
Greetings,

I recently followed Falko's excellent tutorial "The Perfect Desktop - Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)"

I followed everything to the letter. Everythig seems to work but the SMTP authentication.

Thunderbird keeps asking for my password. and my mail.log is showing this...

Oct 22 22:13:59 tesla postfix/smtpd[1736]: warning: Galactica[10.10.5.103]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed: no mechanism available

Oct 22 22:14:10 tesla postfix/smtpd[1736]: warning: Galactica[10.10.5.103]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: no mechanism available

I've looked everywhere for an answer to this problem and have founds many dead ends. Can someone please assist me in correcting this?

Thanks

Did you install Postfix on your desktop? Or is it installed on a remote server? Which tutorial (URL) did you use to configure Postfix?

Hey Falko, Thanks for the help...

I followed yours....

The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 11.10 [ISPConfig 3]

I've gone over as much as I can with my limited experience. Everything looks okay..

Squirrelmail works fine. It can send and receive.

I followed the steps. I didn't see any errors.

I'm still not able to send (authenticate)

But my logs have changed..

postfix/smtpd[2062]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory
postfix/smtpd[2062]: warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed
postfix/smtpd[2062]: warning: Galactica[10.10.5.103]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed: generic failure
postfix/smtpd[2062]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory
postfix/smtpd[2062]: warning: Galactica[10.10.5.103]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: generic failure

I read through the post you found and ran this command

saslauthd -v

I get this error:
saslauthd: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any suggestions?

Thanks

I think I made some headway....

I'm getting this now..

Oct 25 20:36:04 tesla postfix/smtpd[2001]: warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed
Oct 25 20:36:04 tesla postfix/smtpd[2001]: warning: Galactica[10.10.5.103]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed: authentication failure
Oct 25 20:36:04 tesla postfix/smtpd[2001]: warning: Galactica[10.10.5.103]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: authentication failure


Any suggestions?

FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!
:)
:)
:)

I had this in my /etc/default/saslauthd

OPTIONS="-c -m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd"

But it should be this!!

OPTIONS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"

Also.... I also had to do the steps you suggested...

Thank you Falko for your website and help!!!!!!!!!

Your tutorials are of great value! They have taught me so much about Linux!

Thank you!

;)
