Unhappy Postfix - SMTP - authentication failed

I use my Postfix smtp-server for outgoing email.

Since today; when i send an email using my emailclient and this Postfix SMTP-server, an error occurs:

Authentication failed:
The username and/or password is not permitted.

I also discovered that i can not start the saslauthd daemon:
/etc/init.d/saslauthd start

When i do an /etc/init.d/saslauthd start

I receive this message:
Starting SASL Authentication Daemon: (failed).

What can be wrong?

I hope someone knows.
