postfix smtp AUTH SASL Aug 2013
My ISP changed some settings and I am adjusting mine and
outgoing email is not up yet.
I need SASL with smtp sending AUTH PLAIN $(printf
'\0myemail@myemailisp\0emailpasswd' | mmencode) using a bash syntax
which works when typed to explain myself.
I read lots of docs and man pages, and am confused about smtpd
vs smtp amongst other things.
I read from this list and others archived about the same sort of
I have a sasl_passwd file set up with pkgsrc postfix compiled
with the sasl and tls options.
I also have a generic file set up which worked before for local
vs net wide email.
I tried the std postfix and got errors initializing the SASL lib
The recommendations were to use pkgsrc postfix and pkgsrc cyrus,
cy2-plain. Set them up.
Don't see how to activate saslauthd for just this email in
envelope email-addr, email-passwd check. Bits and pieces are
mentioned. I usually don't have this much trouble reading the docs
and then knowing what to do. Sorry to bother people with this.
Some of the archived questions indicated that this setup with
postfix would be put in the guide.
Can someone who has worked with this point me to or post a
canned example that works correctly. I have a new
smtp.giganoc.com:587 to use instead of postfix before with
smtp.soncom.com using port 25. I apologise for slipping into the
slang of what I have read about configuation.
The only thing email does here is go out from my local machine
(peano.jtcl.org) to some network wide address such as
netbsd-users%NetBSD.org@localhost. I can temporarily use this web email
interface, but the fewer times the better.
All in machine mail (peano.jtcl.org) is properly not rewritten
for the network email address jtowler%soncom.com@localhost, and gets sent back
to my account in /var/mail. The error for network wide email using
jtowler@soncom is 530 AUTH needed after MAIL FROM command. The PLAIN
mechanism using base64 from a bash shell and typed and pasted from X11
works and I am successgully logged in to the smtp session to send
email (but typing commands).
Any help with a working setup would be appreciated. I was
concerned about hard coded config file names in the src for postfix/
/src/smtp/smtp_sasl_glue.c (file name could be off, there are not 2
but also appears in postfix/ /src/smtpd.) Someone in the archives
wrote that this was a topic for the Guide which they were working on.
Pointers to an updated NetBSD Guide would help.
I don't see the difference between smtp and smtpd in postfix.
It seems that the needed setup combines both. I can read incoming
email no problem, it is just this for outgoing and whether recently
email fell into the void with the ISP. Help.
