Hi again Falko,

Thanks for trying to help. I answer your questions in the order you asked them.

1. My /etc/postfix/sasl directory is completely empty! Might that be the problem!?

2. The non-comment bits of /etc/postfix/ are (I've protected anything sensitive like: 'working access file'):

smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
biff = no

smtpd_tls_cert_file = 'a file'
smtpd_tls_key_file = 'another file'
smtpd_use_tls = yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtpd_scache
smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtp_scache

alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +

smtp_sasl_password_maps=hash:'working passwd file location'

maximal_queue_lifetime = 1d
mydomain =
myorigin =
mydestination =,,, localhost
home_mailbox = Maildir/

mynetworks =,

relayhost =
smtpd_delay_reject = no
smtpd_sender_restrictions = hash:'working access file', reject_unknown_sender_domain
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, check_client_access hash:'working access file', reject_unauth_destination
smtpd_helo_required = yes
relay_domains = permit_sasl_authenticated, permit_mynetworks, reject_unauth_destination, permit_inet_interfaces
hash_queue_depth = 3
delay_warning_time = 1

3. It doesn't work if I turn of SSL in the client; it makes no difference. As you can see from above, SSL isn't required, just nice to have. I haven't tried turning off SSL completely (i.e. commenting out the relevant lines completely in

Any ideas?
