Today I've installed Postfix/Courier with Mysql authorisation/virtual users using this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostfixCompleteVirtualMailSystemHowto

after a lot of searching and trying i found out that SASL doesn't allow encrypted passwords in a mysql dbase. so you get an "SASL Authentication failure" see: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-937596.html

Does anyone know a solution for this, i'm not keen on having plain text passwords in my database!
