[SOLVED] Postfix sasl issue from client
I have an issue where postfix is setup to use dovecot auth and as far as I know it works, if i login using telnet to the mail server i can authorize myself y providing the base64 encoded user & password. so if i can login, why cant my email clients. have tried thunderbird and evolution.
this is the mail log relavant entries for sucessful login via telnet
Code: (NOTE had to edit ips with --ip-- and emails with xxx an aaa to post)
and the failed attempt from mail client
May 13 23:30:26 horus postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from unknown[--ip--]: 554 5.7.1 <xxx>: Relay access denied; from=<aaa> to=<xxx> proto=ESMTP helo=<host>
May 13 23:30:58 horus postfix/smtpd: D2354205CA: client=unknown[--ip--], sasl_method=plain, sasl_username=aaa
Login by pop or imap works flawlessly that what i dont get. From what i see it SHOULD be working.
May 13 23:32:07 horus postfix/smtpd: warning: unknown[--ip--]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed: UGFzc3dvcmQ6
May 13 23:32:10 horus postfix/smtpd: warning: unknown[--ip--]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: UGFzc3dvcmQ6
It it changes things, im using buntu server LTS 10.04 (I think thats the version) postfixadmin, postfix, dovecot. passwords and info stored in mysql tables. passwords are md5 encrypted. I thought that may be the issue, but that dosnt make sence.
My best guess is that the email client is not encoding the details corectly.
