    Hi,
    I've tried installing an email server on a debian (lenny) box, but I can't get SMTP to work. Every time I try sending mail, I get this error in my mail.log:
    Jun 18 15:33:45 brick postfix/smtpd[19575]: connect from ...[...]
    Jun 18 15:33:45 brick postfix/smtpd[19575]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: Permission denied
    Jun 18 15:33:45 brick postfix/smtpd[19575]: warning: ...[...]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: generic failure
    Jun 18 15:33:45 brick postfix/smtpd[19575]: lost connection after AUTH from ...[...]
    Jun 18 15:33:45 brick postfix/smtpd[19575]: disconnect from ...[...]

    I've followed the instructions from http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_etch_p5 to install and configure the daemons. I've also tried googling and reading older threads, but didn't get far...

    I don't know what files you're going to need and don't want to spam everything that might be relevant at once, so please just ask what information you need and I'll answer as fast as I can :)

    Thank you for your help,
    apo
