    Hi there all,
    I've just followed the tutorial on this site at http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_postfix_mysql_quota_courier_ubuntu_edgy. However I have a problem. Viewing e-mail works without flaw - however I can't send any mail at all. I keep getting the following in /var/log/auth.log:

    Apr 30 15:29:42 vps saslauthd[20430]: cache_un_lock : attempting to release lock on slot: 817
    Apr 30 15:29:42 vps saslauthd[20430]: pam_mysql - SELECT returned no result.
    Apr 30 15:29:42 vps saslauthd[20430]: DEBUG: auth_pam: pam_authenticate failed: User not known to the underlying authentication module
    Apr 30 15:29:42 vps saslauthd[20430]: do_auth : auth failure: [service=smtp] [realm=pbgs.org] [mech=pam] [reason=PAM auth error]

    In the red line above - shouldn't the realm and service entries be the other way around?

    Now, I would expect this if the user did not exist in the DB but he does (it's me actually) and IMAP and POP3 authenticate me fine.

    Any ideas at all please folks?

    Please compare all the files from the tutorial with your own files. Maybe you made a typo somewhere (maybe in /etc/pam.d/smtp)?
