I have IMAP authentication working for vpopmail and standard linux users, but I have a problem with SMTP authentication.
I need SMTP authentication to work for standard linux users (I'm not worried about vpop users at all for SMTP-AUTH). I have built my box using the instructions on Shupp.org (Bill Schupp). I understand that Bill's toaster incorporates a Qmail AUTH patch but when I try to login it doesn't work:
Escape character is '^]'. 220 blue.x-rm.com ESMTP ehlo localhost 250-blue.x-rm.com 250-STARTTLS 250-PIPELINING 250-8BITMIME 250-SIZE 0 250 AUTH LOGIN PLAIN CRAM-MD5 auth login 334 VXNlcm5hbWU6 bmljaw== 334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6 <base64 encoded password> 535 authentication failed (#5.7.1)
I also have this line in /var/log/maillog
May 16 20:56:23 blue vpopmail: vchkpw-smtp: vpopmail user not found nick@:127.0.0.1
..which implies that perhaps it's only looking for vpopmail users rather than /etc/passwd users.
I would like it to work for /etc/passwd users only, or both vpopmail AND /etc/passwd users - whichever is easier.
Can someone please give me some pointers on how I can fix this problem so that normal shell account users can authenticate.
