Today I tried to set up Postfix with a smarthost, which needs SMTP
authentication. But Postfix ist just compiled with Dovecot, so it can just do
SMTP authentication as a Server, not as a client.
What SASL implementations are supported
This document describes Postfix with the following SASL implementations:
* Cyrus SASL version 1 (client and server).
* Cyrus SASL version 2 (client and server).
* Dovecot protocol version 1 (server only, Postfix version 2.3 and later)
Postfix version 2.3 introduces a plug-in mechanism that provides support for
multiple SASL implementations. To find out what implementations are built into
Postfix, use the following commands:
% postconf -a (SASL support in the SMTP server)
% postconf -A (SASL support in the SMTP+LMTP client)
-bash-4.1$ postconf -a
-bash-4.1$ postconf -A
Include cyrus sasl instead - or additionally - to dovecot sasl.
