Error with postfix + dovecot...
I followed linode toturial to install the post fix + dovecot + mysql, but when I try to login my smtp it doesn't work…
i keep getting a message like this on logs..
SASL PLAIN authentication failed: no mechanism available
has anyone seen something like that?
I get this error in the error log:
2011-10-15 16:08:14 master: Error: service(auth): command startup failed, throttling
I didn't use the distribution config file when upgrading. I converted it using the documentation found here:
That doesn't seem to work still.
I found this command, but it doesn't help me to much:
$ doveadm auth -x service=imap -x lip=127.0.0.1 john
doveadm(root): Error: Timeout waiting for handshake from auth server. my pid=21412, input bytes=0
doveadm(root): Fatal: Couldn't connect to auth socket
$ apt-get install dovecot-mysql
$ service dovecot restart
$ server saslauthd restart
