    Hi,

    I have problems with Postfix on ISPConfig 3.0.1.3, OS is CentOS 5.3

    Postfix won't send or recieve mail for any user.

    Logs say this:

    /var/log/maillog
    Code:

    Jun 15 19:13:33 srv1 postfix/smtpd[11888]: auxpropfunc error no mechanism available 
    Can anyone tell me what's wrong with this setup?

    Thank you.

    Did you strictly follow the perfect setup howto for your distribution?
    It seems that you didn't setup the sql authentication correctly.

    Yes I did, and also I tried running update.php to rewrite config files, but nothing has changed...

    Looks as if the mysql bindings for sasl are missing. Maybe you used some packages from another repository. Please seek for a package on your server that has mysql and sasl in its name.

    I guess this is it:


    [root@srv1 ~]# rpm -qa | grep sasl
    cyrus-sasl-sql-2.1.22-4
    cyrus-sasl-devel-2.1.22-4
    cyrus-sasl-lib-2.1.22-4
    cyrus-sasl-2.1.22-4

    [root@srv1 ~]# rpm -qa | grep mysql
    perl-DBD-mysql-4.011-1.el5.rf
    php-mysql-5.1.6-23.2.el5_3
    mysql-server-5.0.45-7.el5
    mysql-5.0.45-7.el5
    mysql-devel-5.0.45-7.el5
    courier-authlib-mysql-0.62.1-1
    mydns-mysql-1.1.0-1

    What's in your smtpd.conf?

    I used 5.2 32bit tutorial, with some modifications (used 5.3 repos), source rpms were compiled OK...

    As far as I remember, the 5.3 guide differs a little bit from the 5.2 guide. Please try the 5.3 guide.

    Hi,

    I reinstalled ISPConfig and again I get the same message:
