Maybe has the sasl update overwritten some config files. Please compare your config fils with the configuration described in the perfect setup howto.

Hello,

well I don't know how to check this. Which files would I have to check?

The 'postconf -e' commands writes into /etc/postfix/master.cf, right?
but I can't find entries like 'mydomain =' in the master.cf

regards, Tom

Hello,

I have perhaps found an error.

tail /var/log/messages gave me:

Mar 26 10:54:36 whitespace saslauthd[7393]: ipc_init : listening on socket: /var/run/sasl2//mux

There is a double slash between sasl2 and mux. This must be an error. The question is: can it be THE error? Where can I find that path in the sasl config?

regards, Tom

try to compare the files that you have with the results expected by the postconf commands and especially the part where sasl files where edited with vi.

maybe you have a main.cf.rpmnew file or a similar filename that yast may have created when updating the pacakges.

Yes, postconf edits the main.cf file.

Dont forget to make a backup of the current main.cf before you change something

Hello,

ok, I have something here:

I have changes the /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd from
SASLAUTHD_AUTHMECH=shadow
to
SASLAUTHD_AUTHMECH=pam

Now I can send mail. But why is that, and what can be the real problem?


regards, Tom

Hello,


could someone please tell me what changes

SASLAUTHD_AUTHMECH=pam

in the /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd does to my Server?
Some people from the threads I found yesterday, concerning the problem I had, found their solution in changing 'pam' to 'shadow' on their servers.
To me it was vice versa, and I'd very much like to know why.
At least I'd like to know what changes that setting does to my system.
And what would I have to do to change it back, if necessary?

Could someone please tell me!


Thank you,
regards,
Tom

Tis switches PAM authentication from shadow to pam. Thats both fina, as pam uses shadow internally to authenticate your users. Maybe the shadow authentication is broken or not supported anymore in the updated package.
