Hi,

I just installed the 3.01 GA on FC4 with default configuration and the install went smooth. Have tested out most things but I'm running into a problem with SMTP authentication.

I have turned on verbose logging for smtpd and managed to capture the login/pass being passed in (both look good) but the error is simply

warning: unknown[xx.xx.xx.xx]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed

I looked at the stmpd.conf to confim authentication methods and both PLAIN and LOGIN are listed. However I don't see them listed when I try this simple test:

# telnet 127.0.0.1 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 notmyrealhostname.com ESMTP Postfix
EHLO 127.0.0.1
250-notmyrealhostname.com
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY
250-ETRN
250-STARTTLS
250 8BITMIME
QUIT

I see that TLS is starting but I don't see the authentication mechanisms that I would normally see such as:

250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
250-AUTH=PLAIN LOGIN

I have setup my own home-grown postfix, sasl, mysql, amavisd-new, spamassassin, clamav, courier in the past so I'm familiar with my way around the config files - but before I start making major changes to postfix - is there something obvious I'm missing. Why isn't smtpd returning the auth-mechanisms and is this a pointer to the problem as it seems to be?

thanks for any help

Mark
