Have you told it to use dovecot for authentication? For example, I have: # SASL SMTP Authentication smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous smtpd_sasl_local_domain = $myhostname broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth smtpd_sasl_authenticated_header = yes http://wiki2.dovecot.org/HowTo/PostfixAndDovecotSASL will walk you through getting postfix to talk to dovecot. > > > note my dovecat mechanism set to = plain login as mentioned in the howto above Are you able to receive mails correctly with Outlook? If so, you've probably got dovecot working fine. If not, post the output of "doveconf -n" here.
