    I have a strange problem..

    I have few domains hosted on my server. On one of the domains I am able to have SMTP plain Text authentication and on other domains I am not able to provide. I get "Pam auth error" message.

    I am using Centos 4.6 with Postfix 2.5.2

    Pl help. Thanks a million!
