smpt auth definately.

while i was waiting for some answers i had a go at setting up just the
SMTP server with sasl auth - and i get two recurring errors, both from

1) postifx/smtpd[19599]: SQL engine 'mysql' no supported.

i never asked for mysql support?

2) (when attempting to send mail from another node in the lan)
do_auth : auth failure ... [mech=pam] [reason=PAM auth error]

however - a simple testsaslauthd -u <user> -p <pass> return success?

in my smtpd.conf i specify saslauthd as the pwcheck_method - what is PAM doing?!
