    Here we go..
    Code:
    [root@m5-fedora4-04 ~]# telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 m5-fedora4-04.myxen.com ESMTP Postfix

    I hate to tell you but I can't same login pops up :(
    I know for sure that I have it correct cause I just loged in to SquirrelMail with same info,
    how do I un-install postfix and follow from here Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS
    because Fedora core 4 was installed on my VPS by my host not me,

    I wouldn't uninstall Postfix, I'd simply run all the Postfix and saslauthd configuration steps from the tutorial over the existing configuration.

    hopefully it goes well,
    I'll report results.

    This is unbelievable :mad:
    same problem even after I followed "Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS" part
    I found this small utility on the net that supposely made for debugging purposes
    http://postfix.state-of-mind.de/patrick.koetter/saslfinger/
    bellow are outputs of ./saslfinger -c and ./saslfinger -c

    at the buttom of ./saslfinger -c command it says
    is that a hint ?
    Code:
    [root@m5-fedora4-04 saslfinger-1.0]# ./saslfinger -c

    Cannot find the smtp_sasl_password_maps parameter in main.cf.
    Client-side SMTP AUTH cannot work without this parameter!

    Please run
    Code:
    postconf -e 'smtp_sasl_password_maps ='
    and restart Postfix.

    Since the server is not at my home I don't think I can follow the setup,
    but anyway thank you for your help!

    I found solution!

    just in case someone gets stuck with same problem,
    problem was that shadow was missing, when I switched back in saslauthd to pam I could send/receive no problem, so I run pwconv and that created shadow and in saslauthd I changed it back to shadow and its working.
    Amen to that :)
