    Default can't send mail using sasl (remote network)

    hello everyone,
    I've installed Zimbra 3.0.1 on a Fedora Core 4 machine (minimal install). I have created 5 users and 2 domains (both have MX records). Everything is working great except the mta sasl authentication. I am using Thunderbird to connect to my mail server (66.x.x.x) from my home (69.x.x.x). I have my Thunderbird smtp settings set to use TLS with my login being my full e-mail address. When I try to send an e-mail, Thunderbird asks me for my password, but it fails (actually it keeps asking for the password).

    On my Zimbra server I get this in the logs (bean is the name of my server):
    Code:

    Mar 23 22:32:45 bean postfix/smtpd[26905]: disconnect from my.host.name[69.x.x.x]
    I've tried every possible solution I was able to find on the forums and the wiki with no luck. I have recreated my ssl certs several times (the 'random state' error threw me off for a while).

    Here is my mta config :



    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Edit : When I try testsaslauthd -u me@my.domain -p secret, i get connect() : No such file or directory. And when I try testsaslauthd -u me@my.domain -p secret -f /opt/zimbra/cyrus-sasl-2.1.21.ZIMBRA/state/mux, i get 0: NO "authentication failed".

    Default sasl update

    Checking my error logs, I noticed that sasl was doing a certificate check. I had set zimbra_cert_check to on in the saslauthd.conf.in trying to get this thing to work. I set it back to off, restarted sasl and now my testsaslauthd is succeeding. I'll do a real test when I go home later today. I changed so many things, I'm not sure what got it going.

    I currently run my own "hand rolled" e-mail system using postfix, postgresql, amavisd, clamd, and spamassassin. I built this about 2 years ago and got stuck on the sasl / postgresql authentication (never could get it to work). Hopefully this fixes the problem and people will be able to send mail from their e-mail clients when they are on the road.
