4th Paragraph

The line: $ make makefiles CCARGS='-DUSE_SASL_AUTH -I/usrlocal/include/sasl' AUXLIBS='-L/usr/local/lib -lsasl2' Should be changed to include: -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL To read: $ make makefiles CCARGS='-DUSE_SASL_AUTH -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL -I/usrlocal/include/sasl' AUXLIBS='-L/usr/local/lib -lsasl2' Omitting the -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL from the line will give you trouble using sasl compiled into Postfix. The program will compile ok, but will not run auth for smtp properly. After I changed that line, using advice from the Postfix users mailing list, Postfix compiled and ran smtp auth ok.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The change has to be made in two example lines in section C.5.1. Cyrus SASL.
