I think this is what the patch listed on the howto.net page is supposed to fix, but it doesn't apply right for me. > Here's my working smtpd.conf: > > # smtpd.conf > pwcheck_method: auxprop > auxprop_plugin: sql > mech_list: plain login > > sql_engine: mysql > sql_hostnames: localhost > sql_user: postfix-user > sql_passwd: thepassword > sql_database: postfix > sql_select: select pass_plain from mailbox where username='[EMAIL PROTECTED]' Once I cleaned up my syntax (per another post, thanks!) while comparing to this, I'm now able to check the DB correctly (I turned on MySQL logging to make sure), except for the whole encrypted vs plaintext thing.
