    I set up cyrus sasl2 to work with postfix smtp server. I am able to send e-mail by authenticating via sasl the first time after I start the saslauthd process. When I send another e-mail, it doesn't work. I looked through different logs, here is what I find:

    1. Start saslauthd. I checked the status, several pids start up.
    Starting saslauthd [ OK ]
    Creating hardlink from /var/lib/sasl2/mux to /var/spool/postfix/var/lib/sasl2/

    saslauthd (pid 29638 29636 29634 29628 29627) is running...

    2. Send e-mail. Everything works.

    3. I checked the /var/log/syslog to make sure the connection was terminated after it was first opened when sending e-mail.

    4. Try sending another e-mail from the same box. E-mail is not sent.

    5. I see most of the saslauthd process are shutdown at this point. Status only shows one process running

    saslauthd (pid 29627) is running...

    6. After I force restart saslauthd, I can send another e-mail. At any point in time, I am able to only send one e-mail.

    Anyone has a clue what is going on? I appreciate your time and help with this.
