Well, since at least one of the sites are mentioning chrooted files, saslauthd won't read the "real" /etc/sasldb2, since it's not really in /etc - the real file resides in /var/spool/postfix/etc, and requires only one thing : That - that you create it and put it there and making the sasl user the group owner of the the  -file. This is how it should look.


The only backside of this is that you may have another load of users in another location /etc/passwd, that still won't be able to authenticate as long as they are not added to sasldb2.

Example of how to create it "properly" first time:

Code Block
#> saslpasswd2 -c nisse
Again (for verification): 
mv /etc/sasldb2 /var/spool/postfix/etc
