I did. All those accounts in sasldb can send mail (postfix-sasl-smtp)
and fetch mail (cyrus-imap), if I am authenticating against saslauthd
and sasldb.
But can't I use the (pam) system account with password over tls+sasl?
The funny thing is:
If I tell saslauthd to use pam instead of sasldb, the only difference
is, that i Have to use PLAIN or LOGIN, and diest-MD5 is not working any
longer. that seems correct, but sasldb is still used:
I made some accounts in sasldb for users and gave them different
passwords than the system passwords (pam).
I does not seem to make any difference, whether i tell saslauthd to use
pam or sasldb - it aways uses the passwords from sasldb. The only
difference is that i have to use the unsecure PLAIN or LOGIN method.
What did i do wrong?
