    Hi, my ubuntu server was runnign perfect with various email domains hosted on it. After I did an Ubunto upgrade from 10.4 to 10.11 and also upgraded to the latest version of ispconfig, my clients cant autenticate to make use of the smtp server. Any suggestions... im a total noobie !

    Reverting the upgrade was not required as you did nothing wrong. Just follow the information described in the link I posted above after the upgrade.

    Hi i changed the "/etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf" file as per the post. But still no success.

    Here is error:

    Apr 25 17:12:44 server1 postfix/smtpd[27933]: fatal: no SASL authentication mechanisms

    Here is my file:

    pwcheck_method: saslauthd
    mech_list: plain login pam
    allow_plaintext: true
    auxprop_plugin: sql
    sql_engine: mysql
    sql_user: ispconfig
    sql_passwd: <password>
    sql_database: dbispconfig
    sql_select: select password from mail_user where login = '%u@%r'

    Can you post your /etc/default/saslauthd file?
