Default SMTP AUTH clear method

Before proceeding with the following steps, please make a backup of /etc/postfix/ and /etc/postfix/sasl.

This is the SMTP-AUTH clear text method:

In /etc/postfix/, make sure you have the following:

smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl

You now need to edit the Postfix "/etc/postfix/sasl" file and hash it. The format of the sasl file is:

host idw

The host portion above must match what you used in the "relayhost" line in Something as follows: myid:mypw (your userid and password)

Save the file.

Hash the file.
[] postmap sasl

Restart postfix
[] /etc/init.d/postfix restart

Once you restart Postfix, send a test message through it, and you should see a line in /var/log/mail log similar to:

to=< >,[], delay=1, status=sent (250 ok 1234567891 qp 12345)
