    Now I'm synchronizing the web for days, but only got headache and no hint to solve my problem...

    I followed your advises in "The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge" and installed ISPconfig. At the moment everything seems to work fine, except of postfix.

    courier is running, I can login an recieve emails, but I cant login to postfix and send mails.

    see my /var/log/mail.log:
    May be it helps to solve my problem:
    the output of postconf -n is:
    The file /etc/postfix/virtusertable seems to be ok:
    but the saslauthentification fails:
    the output of "testsaslauthd -u web6_xxx -p yyy -s smtp" is:
    Any Ideas? I don't have any more.

    In the I hove this here:

    smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
    smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
    before the smtpd_recipient_restrictions.
    Maybe that helps?

    Is sasl actually installed?

    Yes it is.
    Specifying the socket path the sasl-authentification works:
    "testsaslauthd -u web6_xxx -p yyy -f /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd/mux -s smtp" gives back:
    0: OK "Success."

    Did you use the correct username and password?
    What's the output of
    netstat -tap
    ps aux|grep saslauthd

    You also might want to check to make sure that users email directory exists.
