    Hello to everybody. Sorry for my later response.

    I cant send email this is the log:

    Aug 9 15:01:21 ubuntuserver postfix/smtpd[23176]: lost connection after AUTH from unknown[]
    Aug 9 15:01:21 ubuntuserver postfix/smtpd[23176]: disconnect from unknown[]

    Aug 9 15:02:20 ubuntuserver pop3d-ssl: Connection, ip=[::ffff:]
    Aug 9 15:02:24 ubuntuserver pop3d-ssl: LOGIN, user=usuario, ip=[::ffff:], port=[1688]
    Aug 9 15:02:26 ubuntuserver pop3d-ssl: LOGOUT, user=usuario, ip=[::ffff:], port=[1688], top=0, retr=159348, rcvd=195, sent=166033, time=2

    I can receive but not send (some times, but little, send but i dont know why)

    My smptd.conf has this:
    pwcheck_method: saslauth
    mech_list: plain login

    Thank you very much

    I am assuming you have enabled outgoing authentication in your email client? I checked my own smtpd.conf file. The only difference is the pwcheck is set to saslauthd.

    Thank you, of course i had enabled smtp auth but without SSL in the email client (POP3 is enabled SSL). May be if change this configuration could works fine. I dont know. What do you think about?

    Another thing i dont understund is if for default the TLS and SSL are actives and then in the mail client i should mark this secures methods.

    What can i do for fix it?

    Thank you

    Where's your smtpd.conf located? Is it /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf?

    I made more tests and all remain same. Is there any way for dont use ssl with smtp? in the main.cf it is active SSL and TLS.

    Can you post your /etc/postfix/main.cf?

    Hello Falko, off course is this:

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

    # Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first
    # line of that file to be used as the name. The Debian default
    # is /etc/mailname.
    #myorigin = /etc/mailname

    smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
    biff = no

    # appending .domain is the MUA's job.
    append_dot_mydomain = no

    # Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
    #delay_warning_time = 4h

    readme_directory = no

    # TLS parameters
    smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.crt
    smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.key
    smtpd_use_tls = yes
    smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtpd_scache
    smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache

    # See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
    # information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

    myhostname = ubuntuserver.grafycomp.com
    alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
    alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
    myorigin = /etc/mailname
    mydestination = ubuntuserver.grafycomp.com, localhost.grafycomp.com, localhost.localdomain, localhost
    relayhost =
    mynetworks =,
    mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
    mailbox_size_limit = 0
    recipient_delimiter = +
    inet_interfaces = all
    inet_protocols = all
    smtpd_sasl_local_domain =
    smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
    broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
    smtpd_sasl_authenticated_header = yes
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated,permit_mynetworks,reject_unauth_destination
    smtpd_tls_auth_only = no
    smtp_use_tls = yes
    smtp_tls_note_starttls_offer = yes
    smtpd_tls_CAfile = /etc/postfix/ssl/cacert.pem
    smtpd_tls_loglevel = 1
    smtpd_tls_received_header = yes
    smtpd_tls_session_cache_timeout = 3600s
    tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom

    virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable

    mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names


    I forget, the email client is so:

    for smtp:

    port: 25
    use name and password: checked;
    use secure connection: TLS

    like user name: usuario
    password: password

    And thats all

    Problem fixed

    It was a very stupid thing, the line pwcheck_method: saslauth

    Thank you very much falko.
