Smile Configure Cyrus SASL NTLM Plugin with Postfix


I hope somebody can help with this.

I have a shell, that in case of failure, sends an email (relaying through an Exchange Server). This Exchange server only offers NTLM authentication.

This is the configuration I have:

Postfix 2.1.1 as client.

Cyrus-SASL installed (without NTLM plugin):

linux:/usr/local/sbin # rpm -q cyrus-sasl


cat /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd myuser:mypass

As this version of cyrus-sasl 2.1.18 did not have the cyrus-sasl-ntlm plugin, I had to download the cyrus-sasl-2.1.25 and compile with --enable-ntlm option.

So I got installed ntlm plugin in /usr/local/lib/sasl2/

rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  89921 Jun 24 22:55
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     17 Jun 24 22:55 ->
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     17 Jun 24 22:55 ->
But in test this error shows in maillog

warning: SASL authentication failure: No worthy mechs found
send attr reason = delivery via[]: Authentication failed: cannot SASL authenticate to server[]: no mechanism available

By the way, command "pluginviewer" does not show that ntlm plugin is loaded.

Any ideas, suggestions to this would be very appreciated. (I've been dealing with this issue many days)

Thanks in advance !!
