Re: postfix relay smtp authentication

Thank you for reply.
I have indeed set up SASL authentication as you describe and the actual authentication (which occurs at each connection to the remote SMTP server) works fine.

The problems are :
1) My ISP doesn't like *empty* AUTH=<> in the "MAIL FROM:" field of the envelope. They *do* accept any non empty address as well as no AUTH option.

As this is hardcoded into postfix I can see no solution to this other than a patch

2) The MAIL FROM: address in the *envelope* has to be associated with the same account as the username,password pair given to SASL. The from address in the *header* can be something else.

This could be fixed by address rewriting but I can't see how (in postfix 2.1) to rewrite the envelope sender address without modifying the header sender (as I would like the recipient to see the real sender). It seems postfix 2.3 can do this but it also supports per sender SASL authentication which is probably simpler.
