exim, courier, and authdaemon
This is on Sarge.
I've got Courier setup for authuserdb. I can authenticate using
mutt and SquirrelMail.
Then I tried to setup exim to use smtp authentication against the
courier authdaemon. I'm base64'ing the AUTH data and running exim4
in testing -bh testing mode. Exim shows the correct username and
password in the debug output, but auth fails.
I then tried using the utility courierauthtest and that also fails.
So, it's a bit odd -- authentication works when using courier
(via mutt or squirrelmail) but fails when using exim or
I've got the socket chown Debian-exim:Debian-exim, so that's not the
problem. The courierauthtest is a bit lacking, but I can run with
strace and see it passing \nlogin\n<user>\n<pass> to the authdaemon
then then nothing is returned and then auth fails.
