Curious email send requirements

I’ve only been using Virtualmin a short while, and am beginning to put it into production…

I’ve encountered an issue with sending emails…

When receiving i use however, when sending i have to use

When sending using i get: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: authentication failure in maillog

and in messages i get: saslauthd[2697]: do_auth : auth failure: [user=user] [service=smtp] [] [mech=pam] [reason=PAM auth error]

any ideas why the @ version isn’t working, and where to start looking to try and solve it.

BTW: I’m on a clean CentOS 5.4



oops - ignore this - i’ve found it - i needed -r in the saslauthd config file

i should have spent a little more time in the docs!


Glad you got it working – thanks for the update!
