I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 x64 with ISPConfig 18.104.22.168 and i have some problems sending mails from an external client like Thunderbird.
In my mail.log
i got these errors :
SASL PLAIN authentication failed: authentication failure
SASL LOGIN authentication failed: authentication failure
After hours reading in the forums, i found this thread: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...ication+failed
Then, checking my config I found that this file is missing : /etc/pam.d/smtp
but, this is based in the "Ubuntu 8.04 perfect setup" gide.
So my question is:
Is this file needed for my Ubuntu 11.04 setup ?
may you help me filling the filling the necessary parameters in this file:
auth required pam_mysql.so user=mail_admin passwd=mail_admin_password host=127.0.0.1 db=mail table=users usercolumn=email passwdcolumn=password crypt=1
account sufficient pam_mysql.so user=mail_admin passwd=mail_admin_password host=127.0.0.1 db=mail table=users usercolumn=email passwdcolumn=password crypt=1
If so, I think Falko have to add this to the "Ubuntu perfect setup gides" from Ubuntu 10.* to Ubuntu 11.* because I have searched and does not appear.
I hope thi will solve my problem... if not, what may you recommend to me ? im thinking in replace Courrier for Dovecot and make the SASL authentication directly with Dovecot.
Thanks in advance for your anwers !
