    Hello *,

    At first I have to thank for all the howtos, they really helped me a lot!

    I followed the howto of http://www.howtoforge.org/isp-mailserver-with-virtual-users-domains-postfix-dovecot-mysql-centos5.0.

    Receiving emails is no problem and works really fine. But if I try to send emails, I got following errors:

    In the /var/log/maillog:
    Code:
    Dec  1 23:09:41 h1426918 postfix/smtpd[3711]: initializing the server-side TLS engine

    In the /var/log/message

    When I run saslfinger I got the following results.

    Cannot find the smtp_sasl_password_maps parameter in main.cf.
    Client-side SMTP AUTH cannot work without this parameter!
    
    So I think, there should be something wrong with this mysterious smtp_sasl_password_maps parameter. But how it has to look like? I searched a little bit but don't get an answer that helped me really ...

    saslfinger for the server-side returns this:

    I hope you can help me, thanks a lot!

    Can you try
    Code:
    pwcheck_method: authdaemond
    log_level: 3
    mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN
    authdaemond_path:/var/spool/authdaemon/socket
    in /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf?

    @Falko, I tried it out but it didn't changed anything.
    Perheps it's important, that the /var/spool/authdaemon/socket does not exist?

    Did you start the courier-authdaemon?

    no, I don't have it. I don't use courier. I use Postfix with Dovecot. And in the installation howto it's not mentioned...

    EDIT: I tried something different and it worked. I read in the Postfix SASL Howto, that it is possible to use the auth of dovecot, so I tried and everything is fine. Here (http://www.postfix.org/SASL_README.html#server_dovecot) for more information, perhaps someone else has the same problem ...

    Naja, I don't suppose you could post your dovecot and postfix configs? I'm going to try taking the same route as you, as I'm having the same problems. I'm working on the dovecot config right now, but I'm getting sort of lost between the SASL docs and using mysql for auth.
