Cannot get dovecot SASL to work with postfix

view full story

http://serverfault.com – Running debian 6, I believe I've enabled everything correctly, followed various guides to double check as I've been working on this for 3 days now. I've tested both dovecot and postfix with telnet and they work as best as I can tell, however I'm not getting the expected SASL support response when using smtp. I don't really know how to troubleshoot it further than that. Also fwiw I noticed that dovecot -n outputs mode as set to 432 where as it's actually set to 0660 in dovecot.conf, any idea why this is, might this be related? dovecot.conf # 1.2.15: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf # OS: Linux 2.6 (HowTos)
