SASL problem on Postfix 2.3


My dovecot server works fine with SASL, but my Postfix will not work with SASL.

How can i configure SASL very simple?

Thanks, for help!

Can you provide a bit more information here? What distribution? What versions of SASL and Postfix? From packages or source?

What, exactly, do you want Postfix to do with SASL?

I too am having similar issues. I have Postfix running on fedora 9 that I installed using rpm. I am also using dovecot and squirrel mail. I can send and receive email fine, but authentication takes place in plain text which is a security issue. I have tried setting up TLS and SASL but they both fail. On my last attempt with TLS I got the following errors:

warning: cannot get certificate from file /etc/postfix/postfix.cert
Dec 16 21:53:01 mailtest postfix/smtpd[6142]: warning: TLS library problem: 6142:error:0906D06C:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:no start lineem_lib.c:647:Expecting: CERTIFICATE:

Dec 16 21:53:01 mailtest postfix/smtpd[6142]: cannot load RSA certificate and key data

Any help or guidance is much appreciated.
