Hi again martin,

Followed your advise with no luck either, I tried

 testsaslauthd -u da...@domain.com -p pass
saslauthd[18405] :rel_accept_lock : released accept lock
saslauthd[18407] :get_accept_lock : acquired accept lock
saslauthd[18405] :do_auth : auth failure: [user=da...@domain.com] [service=imap] [realm=] [mech=ldap] [reason=Unknown]
saslauthd[18405] :do_request      : response: NO
0: NO "authentication failed"

Postfix doesn't even how any autrhentication attempts, but what I see as a weird things is that "service=imap"

I appreciate your help and prompt response, I've tried with ldap_table instructions from postfix site but no joy, also it's important to mention to all that this is a brand new install of CentOS so no tweaks or any weird thing.

Thanks everyone.

Hello there everyone David here,

I'm big time Red Hat fan, I work for a company where we have a small
20+ people directory, I'm currently using Samba4 to offer
authentication to Openfire, Postfix, Dovecot (using GroupOffice); but
I want to switch ebcause samba is a hassle to setup and whenever
replication breaks it's nearly impossible to rebuild, anyways, My
current environment is Proxmox VE 3 as virtualization platform and
many CentOS/RedHat Servers holding my services.

Please excuse me if this was already answered but after I went
trhough the archives I coulnd't find anyone facing the same issue,
please bear with me as I'm a newbie to FreeIPA and LDAP. I know I'm
missing something or doing it wrong but after a week struggling with
this setup I decided  to call for the help of the experts.

My environment:
FreeIPA Server
CentOS 6.5 x86_64

Mail Server
CentOS 6.5

I've followed these posts from Dale McCartney, whom I've also read
his posts around here



None of them seem to work at the moment when using Thunderbird with
the server set up as STARTLS Kerberos/GSSAPI -- Thunderbird also
reports that

"The kerberos/GSSAPI ticket was not accepted by the IMAP server
da...@domain.com. Please chack that you're logged in to the
Kerberos/GSSAPI realm"

with Dovecot I'm getting this

Jun 22 11:01:25 imap-login: Info: Disconnected: Inactivity (no auth
attempts): rip=, lip=

I tried manual telnet and use a authenticate gssapi which retuns "+"
which means module is indeed loading and the server is gssapi ready
for the challenge.

If anyone of you could point me into the right direction I'd really
value that.

I think the right direction is to just use LDAP for these things..

Here's my LDAP+SASL on debian for Postfix. Seems like Dovecot can also
authenticate against SASL.

Create an unprivileged user for ldap-bind

** /etc/postfix/main.cf

smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_path = smtpd
smtpd_sasl_local_domain = yourdomain.com

...add to:
smtpd_recipient_restrictions =

** /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf
pwcheck_method: saslauthd
mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN

** /etc/saslauth.conf
ldap_servers: ldap://your.ipa.server
ldap_search_base: cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=yourdomain,dc=com
ldap_filter: (|(uid=%u)(mail=%u))
ldap_bind_pw: password-of-the-user
