    Did you check if the password you set, is the same in all configuration files (10 in most cases)?
    The tutorials use mail_admin_password which u have to replace with your own password.

    Also you should post more details about your issue, which tutorial, which OS, and the contents of your mail.log and auth.log.

    I followed Falko's virtual domains tutorial for Ubuntu 10.10. This is the content of Auth.log when I try to log in:

    Jan 27 07:30:01 regents-pattaya CRON[14473]: pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)
    Jan 27 07:30:01 regents-pattaya CRON[14473]: pam_unix(cron:session): session closed for user root.

    That's it.
    Mail.log shows this:

    Looks like I might have to config this smtp_sasl_password_maps parameter? Any idea how?
    Thanks very much guys.

    I have looked in /etc/postfix/main.cf and found no mention of the parameter smtp_sasl_password_maps.
    Should it be added and how?
    Thanks guys.

    i tried:
    postconf -e 'smtp_sasl_password_maps = /etc/postfix/sasl/smtp.conf'
    but to no avail, it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

    Can you post your main.cf?

    Connection dropped

    Doesn't this error happen when you haven't sent the initial test email to the user? This happened to me before but I can't remember what fixed it. I think the earlier suggestion that you very carefully review all the config files for a mistaken password may also be the problem.
