Quote:

authenticaion fails and also mail log is below:

Quote:
postfix/smtpd[19051]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory
postfix/smtpd[19051]: warning: unknown[88.255.98.42]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: generic failure

I searched on google but no lock. I can't really understand the authentication mechanism.
Can you guys give me some advice? What else can I check?
