Default converted to dovecot - SMTP-AUTH functional.

I changed from cyrus to dovecot-sasl -
per:

/etc/postfix/main.cf:
smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth

On the Dovecot side you also need to specify the Dovecot authentication daemon socket. In this case we specify an absolute pathname. In the example we assume that the Postfix queue is under /var/spool/postfix/.

/some/where/dovecot.conf:
auth default {
mechanisms = plain login
passdb pam {
}
userdb passwd {
}
socket listen {
client {
path = /var/spool/postfix/private/auth
mode = 0660
user = postfix
group = postfix
}
}
}


deleted the sasl_passwd stuff etc from main.cf

reloaded and everything seems happy!

cdb.
