TLS / SASL authentication, dovecot and postfix - does this config look correct?
I am running the following on CentOS 5.5 (Final)
When I send an email via TLS I see the following log entries.
The last entry states "sasl_method=PLAIN" - so surely this is not encrypted?
Or am I misunderstanding how it works?
Any comment / help / explanations appreciated.
PLAIN means that the password is transmitted in plaintext, i.e. it's not hashed in some way. This is not a problem, since you're using an encryption layer. Something to note is that saslauthd is not needed for dovecot.
At least I managed to get saslauth working!
And as it seems ok I'm happy.
Thanks for your input.
