I am trying to set up a mail server following this guide:
I have Postfix 2.10 and Dovecot 2.2.3. I got this in the mail.err log file:
and this in the mail.log:
Jun 22 10:22:25 ubuntu01 postfix/smtpd: fatal: no SASL authentication mechanisms
I checked and I am missing /var/spool/postfix/private/auth socket - it is just not there.
Jun 22 10:26:47 ubuntu01 postfix/smtpd: warning: SASL: Connect to private/auth failed: No such file or directory
Jun 22 10:26:47 ubuntu01 postfix/smtpd: fatal: no SASL authentication mechanisms
I am attaching some of the configuration files I changed with reverting back the domain specific settings to their general values.
Please, can anyone help me and point me in the right direction. I suspect the documentation refers to an older version of postfix/dovecot with different configuration files.
