"250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN" instead of "250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN"

    In the Ubuntu 8.04 Perfect Server Howto; following the Postfix configuration; I telnet to port 25 and perform the "ehlo localhost" and the the following:

    "250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN" instead of "250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN" as is listed in the Howto.

    First question is, of course; Why did this happen / what caused this?
    Second question is; how will this affect my Postfix server's functionality or will it?

    I copied and pasted the commands into my SSH session, so I know the commands were typed verbatim. I'm setting up two servers, this being the second one, and the first one worked just as described in the Howto, but this second one (done about a week later) gives a different result.

    Any help appreciated.

    The order doesn't matter at all, so you can ignore this. :)

    I have been following the same tutorial and "ehlo local host" produces the following output:

    250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN CRAM-MD5 NTLM DIGEST-MD5
    250-AUTH=PLAIN LOGIN CRAM-MD5 NTLM DIGEST-MD5

    Is this an issue?

    If so, how can I fix it?

    Help gratefully appreciated....

    cat /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf

    pwcheck_method: saslauthd
    mechlist: plain login

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks Falko for your interest.

    Yes, I am using Ubuntu 8.04. Clean install from ISO with OpenSSL, PostgreSQL and Samba. Then followed instructions in your tutorial perfect-server-ubuntu8.04-lts.

    netstat -tap output below:
