Post #9 of 9
I'm not sure how, but I finally got it to work. Some of the steps I
performed are below (in case someone else has this issue). I'm not sure
which one did it because I made one change which caused something else to
break. Maybe someone can explain.
I am running postfix chrooted, which may have been part of my problem. (I
read in places that Debian was tricky in this area)
I changed my smtpd.conf file to the following: (it is located in
mech_list: plain login cram-md5 digest-md5
In /etc/default/saslauthd, I changed my options line to the following:
OPTIONS="-r -c -m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd"
And added this line:
I also added postfix user to the SASL group (I was getting an access denied
error (in mail.log) on SASL authentication):
adduser postfix sasl
Thanks to everyone that helped. It would be helpful if someone could
explain what (if any) of the above may have fixed this problem.
