Default Sasl not installed??

Hi everyone,

I have a debian squeeze / ispconfig 3 installation on my server. I actually have an issue on mail server and particularly with SASL. On mail log, I have the following:

SASL LOGIN authentication failed

I followed the main tutorial to my installation, but a strange thing, we never installed the "sasl2-bin" package. For example, I don't have any file "/etc/default/saslauth". I think that's why I get this error but not sure.

Can you confirm me it is? and how do I install saslauth? Is there a precise configuration to do?

Many thanks to all!

Hi Falko,
I followed this one:

http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-debian-squeeze-with-bind-and-dovecot-ispconfig-3


I noticed that Saslauth is not required cause dovecot manage it, but why do I have this message in my log files?
and How can I configure secured connection on softwares like Outlook?

Many thanks.

Did you modify /etc/postfix/main.cf somehow? Can you post it?

On the Advanced tab on the email account settings you can select POP3S (port 995) and TLS for SMTP (port 25).

Falko,
I didn't modify as far as I know, just followed your (great ) tutorial.
Here you can find my /etc/postfix/main.cf:

# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version

# line of that file to be used as the name. The Debian default

Seems to be ok. Are there any other errors in your mail log?

Maybe the following can help. Sometimes I also have (don't know if it's related or not):

dovecot: imap-login: Aborted login (no auth attempts): rip=127.0.0.1, lip=127.0.0.1, TLS

But sometimes I also have:

dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected (no auth attempts): rip=127.0.0.1, lip=127.0.0.1, secured

What do you think about that?
Maybe, if you guide me, I can make a few test on Outlook?

These lines are from the system monitor, they are not related to your issue.

Ok Till, thanks for your reply.
I just tested a secured connection on Outlook with TLS, and it seems works fine. So, I don't understand why I had these errors in log files...I think it should works now.
Just to understand, I used "courier" before "dovecot" (by following your tutorial on ubuntu). Courier used SSL for secured connection instead of TLS with Dovecot right?

I'm not very fine with mail servers and I want to check if all is good.
So, I have another question. I often have this kind of messages in warn.log:

postfix/smtpd[15051]: warning: 122.52.244.19: hostname 122.52.244.19.pldt.net verification failed: Name or service not known

What does it means? Does the email sent to the address can fail?

Many thanks to both of you :-)

TLS is SSL for imap connections,so courier and dovecot offer both the same encrypted and unencrypted connection methods to ecxernal mail clients.

This means that this hostname does not exist. If you send something to a address that does not exist, it will never arrive there. Just like in real live
