    Hello, i am using postfix+saslauth to auth my smtp outgoing mails.
    I cant login to my smtp server. POP3 i have no problem but i can only check mails with it, smtp is needed to send ones (hmpf you already know that i guess :) )

    So here is what i have as my configs, and logs:

    HELP .. i've tried all i have comed up with. ...

    in addition i can auth via testsaslauthd using the same username and password as when i auth in my smtp ... but in testsaslauthd it works ... in the smtp it doesnt. ..

    and another strange thing ... when i auth vie testsaslauthd it logs it as user hammer, but when i auth via outlook express it logs it as hammer at ... hammer at is not a valid user ... how can i fix this?

    hm ... f**k i've removed the -r option (after reading 100 times the manual .. .to understand that it adds the domain name after the login name) and everything is OKAY now!

    Thank you.
    This was very handy to me because I had the same issue. One more time for everyone ( I have Debian distro).

    In /etc/default/saslauthd
    line with: PARAMS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"
    has to be changed to: PARAMS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd"
