    Hello, guys.

    I'm trying to move/re-configure my mail server from an older debian server to a gentoo one.

    I kinda configured everything i know/remember, but I have one big problem.

    I keep getting this warning. You have bellow my postfix config as well. Can you help me? What other config should I provide?
    All posts i found online about this didn't help and chrooting and I would like to solve this without chrooting if possible :D.

    Is saslauthd running? What's the output of
    ps aux | grep -i saslauthd
