Default SASL LOGIN authentication failed

I am getting this message when attempting to send messages from my webserver. I am fairly new to the Linux world. From what I am seeing. As a client I can loggin into the ISPconfig webmail and send messages with no problem. When I try to use a cold fusion page from a remote server hosting the website using ispconfig login and password specified in the script it drops and I get the following:

Dec 22 11:27:41 server1 postfix/smtpd[21896]: warning: 205.178.145.176: address not listed for hostname v2kcfm8.bos.netsolhost.com
Dec 22 11:27:41 server1 postfix/smtpd[21896]: connect from unknown[205.178.145.176]
Dec 22 11:27:41 server1 postfix/smtpd[21896]: warning: unknown[205.178.145.176]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed
Dec 22 11:27:41 server1 postfix/smtpd[21896]: lost connection after AUTH from unknown[205.178.145.176]
Dec 22 11:27:41 server1 postfix/smtpd[21896]: disconnect from unknown[205.178.145.176]


I have followed the install instructions to the tee and this the only issue I have come across with the solution.

You must use the username and password of an email user, not the ISPConfig login.

The email usernames begin normally with web[ID]_user where [ID] is the ID of the website and user is the username you chose when you creadted the email user.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

This seemed to have worked with the first user that was created in the site. When I look at the virtusertable the other users do not have a web id associated. I tested with my script with the way you have suggested and it worked fine for the one user that has a web id but not the for the users without a web id.

All your users should have a prefix like web<id>_, unless you changed that in ISPConfig after you created your first user with web<id>_...
