yes, it is all on one line.
postconf -e 'smtpd_sasl_local_domain ='
but still the same problem.
[root@mail ~]# saslauthd -v
authentication mechanisms: getpwent kerberos5 pam rimap shadow ldap
Is it a problem that authdaemond does not show up in that list? I tried changing the pwcheck_method in /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf to shadow, but that didn't help.
Also please note that at the moment, mail.parecki.com does not actually point to this machine. I can give you access to my machine directly if you think you would be able to solve this faster that way, then post the solution to the forum. My machine is a VPS, so I can easily restore it back to the current state for any reason.
