I've been on this for three days now and am getting nowhere!
ok I have sasl and postfix all working but not together. if I do..
tetstsaslauthd -u useername -p password I get an OK so sasl is working againts the shadow password file.
when trying to authenticate from a mail client I get...
Sep 16 22:42:37 mail postfix/smtpd: warning: SASL authentication problem: unknown password verifier
Sep 16 22:42:37 mail postfix/smtpd: warning: 89-145-232-118.xdsl.murphx.net[22.214.171.124]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: no mechanism available
Sep 16 22:42:37 mail postfix/smtpd: lost connection after AUTH from 89-145-232-118.xdsl.murphx.net[126.96.36.199]
my main.cf file....
# These are only the parameters changed from a default install
# see /etc/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, fuller version of this file.
And the bit that was really throwing me is saslauthd was starting in the incorrect directory, so I assume that postfix either did not know about it or couldn't see it. the SOCKETDIR used to be /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd
