Default Add a smtp port to existing Postfix

I used the Ubuntu Postfix howto for 8.04.

I tried to add a port to postfix by adding this line to master.cf:
587 inet n - n - - smtpd


I restarted postfix and I can connect now, but the mysql authentication does not appear to be working. I keep getting prompted for a password.

I assume there is another place I need to make a change, but am not sure where. Thank in advance for the help.

Is there any other information I could provide to make this question easier?

I am still having an issue trying to use this alternate port.

When you try to send a message using this port it continually asks for the password.

Relevant part of log:

salsauthd is running.

Authentication is working properly for requests that come from port 25.
