    Hi,

    since the last upgrade of my debian distribution I can't send mails through my smtp server...

    I'm using ISPConfig 2.2.5 and Postfix as SMTP

    /var/log/mail.warn contains:

    Code:
    Apr 21 15:45:31 h918036 postfix/smtpd[6305]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: Connection refused
    Apr 21 15:45:31 h918036 postfix/smtpd[6305]: warning: XXX.t-dialin.net[XX.XXX.XX.XXX]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: generic failure
    
    content of
    /etc/default/saslauthd is

    Code:
    # This needs to be uncommented before saslauthd will be run automatically
    START=yes
    PARAMS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"
    # You must specify the authentication mechanisms you wish to use.
    # This defaults to "pam" for PAM support, but may also include
    # "shadow" or "sasldb", like this:
    # MECHANISMS="pam shadow"
    
    MECHANISMS="pam"
    
    ISPConfig: Administration --> Server --> Properties --> Mail
    Virtuser: /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    Sendmail CW: /etc/postfix/local-host-names

    these files exist and seem to be correct... all urls and aliases are correct

    Hope anybode can help me!

    Best regards,
    Andreas

    the above link seems to be directed to this thread... perhaps you can correct this?

    thanks so far.

    Andreas

    *UPDATE*
    I solved the problem using the Guide "The perfect setup Debian 4.0" for postfix and saslauth config.
    now everything works fine!
