Exclamation Cant Send Email After Installing dkfilter

Hello,

I have setup an email server using your guide here

http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...be-ubuntu-6.06

All was working ok until i installed the dkfilter using your tutorial here

http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_dk...implementation

I can login and receive emails (recevied emails have a dkfilter header) but i cannot send them. Im getting this error in the mail log

Code:
Feb  7 12:12:07 bemail1 postfix/smtpd[8426]: connect from localhost[127.0.0.1]
Feb  7 12:12:07 bemail1 postfix/smtpd[8426]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory
Feb  7 12:12:07 bemail1 postfix/smtpd[8426]: warning: localhost[127.0.0.1]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: generic failure
Feb  7 12:12:07 bemail1 postfix/smtpd[8426]: disconnect from localhost[127.0.0.1]

As you can see from the error this has nothing to do with the dk-milter, it is your SASL server that has died.

But if i remove all the settings that i added from the dkfiler tutorial, and restart postfix, i can send and receive emails fine.

Hi,

Well ive been playing with it, an i think i found the error. I had to change the smtp line in my master.cf

here is the line i changed in the master.cf

Code:
# Before-filter SMTP server. Receive mail from the network and
# pass it to the content filter on localhost port 10025.
#
#smtp      inet  n       -       n       -       -       smtpd
smtp      inet  n       -       -       -       -       smtpd
    -o smtpd_proxy_filter=127.0.0.1:10025
    -o smtpd_client_connection_count_limit=10
I now have the dkfilter header in my outgoing email

Thanks for your help anyway topdog
