Question Problem with Saslauthd and postfix


since the last upgrade of my debian distribution I can't send mails through my smtp server...

I'm using ISPConfig 2.2.5 and Postfix as SMTP

/var/log/mail.warn contains:

Apr 21 15:45:31 h918036 postfix/smtpd[6305]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: Connection refused
Apr 21 15:45:31 h918036 postfix/smtpd[6305]: warning: XXX.t-dialin.net[XX.XXX.XX.XXX]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: generic failure
content of
/etc/default/saslauthd is

# This needs to be uncommented before saslauthd will be run automatically
PARAMS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"
# You must specify the authentication mechanisms you wish to use.
# This defaults to "pam" for PAM support, but may also include
# "shadow" or "sasldb", like this:
# MECHANISMS="pam shadow"

ISPConfig: Administration --> Server --> Properties --> Mail
Virtuser: /etc/postfix/virtusertable
Sendmail CW: /etc/postfix/local-host-names

these files exist and seem to be correct... all urls and aliases are correct

Hope anybode can help me!

Best regards,

On this point, there are some small differences between Sarge and Etch.
I think it is a good idea to have a look here:

It might help you.

the above link seems to be directed to this thread... perhaps you can correct this?

thanks so far.


I solved the problem using the Guide "The perfect setup Debian 4.0" for postfix and saslauth config.
now everything works fine!
