    Please compare /etc/pam.d/smtp and /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf with the versions in the tutorial.

    Same problem

    Hi, I've just installed twice today in different computer the howto http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-users-domains-postfix-courier-mysql-squirrelmail-ubuntu8.10 (fantastic!) and all works fine.. all except SMTP auth.

    This is my mail.warn
    I've followed the howto really step by step and I've replicated the same configuration an another pc and I've the same result.

    Anyone could help me?

    Thanks,

    Enriko

    What's in /etc/default/saslauthd and /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf?

    /etc/default/saslaut:

    /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf:

    Can you restart saslauthd and Postfix? If that doesn't help - what's in /etc/postfix/master.cf?
     
  10. Enrikoala

    Enrikoala New Member

    First of all thanks for interesting.
    Daemons restarted, problems remain and here you'll find /etc/postfix/master.cf:

    Looks ok. What's the output of
    Code:
    updatedb
    locate smtpd.conf
    ?
     
  12. Enrikoala

    Enrikoala New Member

    Nothing about the first and /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf about the second:

     
  13. Enrikoala

    Could the problem be that I've had a lot of problems configuring bind9?

    ...and if it'd be useful the mail that cron send me every night (as I've set up) is completely empty of users in both computer where I've installed this service following the howto. This's the last arrived me:

    Looks ok. I have no idea why saslauthd is looking for sasldb2... :confused:
