SMTP Auth just stopped working after Debian upgrade
 
Today I ran an apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade, and two packages were updated:
libssl0.9.8
openssl

Since this, SMTP auth has stopped working with the following message in /var/log/mail.info:
SASL LOGIN authentication failed: authentication failure

This is a standard ISPConfig 3.0.4.6 system on Debian Squeeze.

Any ideas?

It might be that the debian update overwrote a config file. Please rerun the ispconfig by following the manual update instructions here:

and choose to reconfigure services during update.

Just managed to fix the problem by restarting sasauthd:
/etc/init.d/saslauthd restart

Weird, now all our clients can send email again via SMTP.
Perhaps the package upgrade didn't restart saslauthd.

Can confirm there's an issue in latest debian repository updates.

Looks like this is caused by libssl / openssl package update breaking something in saslauthd unless you restart it manually.

Welcome.
I have the same after the upgrade: "libssl0.9.8" and "openssl" emails stopped working: (

Download the ispconfig tar.gz again, unpack it and run the update.php script in the install folder. Choose to reconfigure services during update.

Some users reported that this fixed the issue.

Update does not fix the error. Luckily I had a backup disk :)
Please help me how to fix it.

I also needed to restart postgrey to make all work again.

Code:

/etc/init.d/postgrey restart
