    I have a centos 4.4 installed in a 32 bits PC, I configured DNS, apache, FTP, I follow this tutorial part 1 and 2

    And everithing is fine...

    BUT I neet that the postfix only send email IF the "outlook express" has the option MY SERVER REQUIRES AUTHENTICATION checked on...And if not has this checked out it has to give an error...

    I have been trying and trying and trying but nothing :-(

    my has

    smtp_sasl_auth_enable = no
    smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination
    smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
    broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes

    what im I doing wrong ?

    THANKS !!!
    EDIT: my messages file says this...postfix/smtpd[5056]: auxpropfunc error no mechanism available, how can I put auxproc available? I cant use auxprox ? ut width de saslauthd it didn't work neither...

    I don't have that file, I'm using CENTOS server 4.4...

    In my /usr/lib/sasl/smtpd.conf

    pwcheck_method: saslauthd
    saslauthd_version: 2

    and in my /usr/lib/sasl2.smtpd.conf

    pwcheck_method: saslauthd

    And in my /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd

    # Directory in which to place saslauthd's listening socket, pid file, and so
    # on. This directory must already exist.

    # Mechanism to use when checking passwords. Run "saslauthd -v" to get a list
    # of which mechanism your installation was compiled to use.

    # Additional flags to pass to saslauthd on the command line. See saslauthd(8)
    # for the list of accepted flags.

    I'm getting crazy, reguards and thanxs

    Then have a look here:
    It should apply to CentOS as well.

    Try this in /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf:

    pwcheck_method: authdaemond
    log_level: 3
    mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN

    Pero con ese sistema de donde saca las contraseñas para autenticar ?

    porque yo las tengo en el sasldb, pero cambié lo que me dijiste y no me toma las contraseñas, ninguna...

    PD: Yo en /var/spool no tenti ningún directorio authdeamon, ni con find o locate me aparece...

    jajajajajajajaja, I'm sorry, I'm from Argentina...We speack in spanish...I Forget it...

    The question is, where does the authdaemond take the passwords from ?

    Becouse I'm using the sasldb, and when I change what you said IT didn't take me any password, every password was not taken

    PD: In my centos I dont have a authdeamon dir, I look for it width FIND, WHEREIS AND LOCATE, and nothing...

    Normally from /etc/shadow, but if you use sasldb then the passwords are stored in there.
