this is my situation, one qmail+vpopmail(MySQL)+dovecot server that works like an MX record and provide access on mailbox via POP3 or IMAP.

Another server with postfix and SASL for SMTP-Auth only, with SASL that query the vpopmail DB for user authentication.

My intention is to set a query into SASL for use the same flags for SMTP-Auth that read vpopmail and qmail.

Now the SASL query is very simple:

$ cat /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf
pwcheck_method: auxprop
auxprop_plugin: sql
mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN
#password_format: crypt
sql_engine: mysql
sql_user: postfix
sql_passwd: pippo
sql_database: vpopmail
sql_select: SELECT pw_clear_passwd FROM vpopmail WHERE pw_name='%u' and pw_domain='%r' and smtppostfix = '1'

the only condition is the column "smtppostfix" that I must set manually.

There is the way to change the SELECT query in order to check the original vpopmail flags? So i can manage SMTP users authentication from vpopmail command line and reflect this configuration into a postfix server :-)

I have read this discussion:


but I have not found a solution :-(
