I have some problem with dovecot, I have added dovecot_lda support for roundcube sieve filters. Roundcube works perfectly with the filters now. But if i try send messages by smtp (outlook|thunderbird), the mail client ask always pass and doesnt pass to send email.

/var/log/exim/main.log:
2015-09-17 20:53:08 dovecot_plain authenticator failed for hostname.domain.com ([192.168.0.2]) [1.1.1.1]: 435 Unable to authenticate at present: authentication socket connection error

How the problem can be fixed?

0

This is happening because dovecot, by default, does not trust plain text authentication coming from hosts different than 127.0.0.1 (localhost).

You can solve the problem using two different solutions:

  1. switch your Outlook client to use SSL protocols (IMAPS:port 993 / SMTPS: ports 465 or 587). This is the best approach
  2. enable plain authentication for your Outlook client's network using the login_trusted_networks directive
  • 587 and ssl doesnt help, tested in thunderbird. – Max S Sep 20 '15 at 10:50
  • Is selinux enabled? If so, try to disable it using the command setenforce 0 and re-try to autenticate. – shodanshok Sep 20 '15 at 12:18
  • SELINUX=disabled It was already disables – Max S Sep 21 '15 at 22:17
