Hello List,
I am looking for a site with good information about postfix, cyrus-sasl
(and later kerberos authentikation against Active Directory). I have
postifix and imap running with cyrus sasl and sasldb, but i did not
manage to get it to authenticate against pam or kerberos.
I have been googling, but i could not find a solution.

I know that:
- /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd tells saslauthd which mech to use.
the entry is:

- /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf
pwcheck_method: saslauthd
mechlist: plain login crammd5 digestmd5

for testing:
smtpd_sender_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated,
permit_mynetworks, reject
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes

Now: postfix grants all users access based on user/password kombinations
in sasldb - and only those users. Shouldn't saslauth use the local
user/password Kombination?
(BTW: Why does sasl with PAM only work with PLAIN?)

Thanks a lot!
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
