Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: postfix
I am attempting to set up Postfix with SASL authentication on a server
with 9.10. I have installed the dovecot-postfix package, and both
incoming and outgoing email work. However, I cannot get SASL
authentication to work. The /etc/postfix/main.cf file shows that
Dovecot SASL authentication should be enabled, but when I telnet in and
do a "ehlo", this is all I get:
michael at mamarley-laptop:~$ telnet mail.michaelmarley.com 25
Connected to thefirstm.dyndns.org.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 michaelmarley.com ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)
Nothing about "AUTH" appears, and sending the "AUTH" command results in:
503 5.5.1 Error: authentication not enabled
Other than this error, there is no other indication of the failure in
any of the logs. I have posted my /etc/postfix/main.cf file. If you
need any others, please tell me.
** Affects: postfix (Ubuntu)
