I wasn't using mysql but had similar problems setting up SASL with Postfix. After lots of searching, I finally found the answer and posted it to the list. You can find my post here:I (tried) following the instructions at: http://high5.net/howto/
I have postfix virtual users working in MySQL. I have courier imap/pop3 working w/ virtual users. I wanted to add SMTP auth.
I added the cyrus-sasl2 port (also chose support for it in postfix port) "WITH_MYSQL".
I added the following lines to /usr/local/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf (found this in another faq/tutorial, so it may be incorrect)
sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop sasl_auxprop_plugin: mysql login plain crammd6 digestmd5 mysql_user: postfix-user mysql_passwd: thepassword mysql_database: postfix mysql_statement: SELECT password FROM mailbox WHERE username = '%u' mysql_verbose: yes
(I also tried "sasl_" in front of all the lines).
When I try to use SMTP Auth from Outlook Express, I get this in the logs:
Apr 6 20:35:01 server01 postfix/smtpd: warning: SASL authentication failure: no user in db Apr 6 20:35:01 server01 postfix/smtpd: warning: SASL authentication failure: no secret in database Apr 6 20:35:01 server01 postfix/smtpd: warning: swing.bjwcs.com[18.104.22.168]: SASL NTLM authentication failed
I'm using cyrus-sasl-2.1.18 and postfix 2.0.19.
I also tried compiling w/ the patch listed in that tutorial link above, but it breaks. I read somewhere that mysql stuff changed in cyrus-sasl-2.1.17.
Any help? I think I'm really close... I'm just so frustrated at this point,
I'm probably no longer thinking clearly.
Maybe this will help you as my errors were similar.
