Subject:   Postfix error after updating to openssl-0.9.8k_5
Message-ID:  <BLU0-SMTP789B4B058FA52A7E7DFFC93DE0@phx.gbl>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I just install the updated "openssl-0.9.8k_3" to "openssl-0.9.8k_5" and
then rebuilt "postfix-current-2.7.20090712,4" and
"cyrus-sasl-saslauthd-2.1.23". Now when Postfix starts, I am receiving
this error message:

Sep 20 08:15:51 scorpio postfix/smtpd[4050]: sql_select option missing
Sep 20 08:15:51 scorpio postfix/smtpd[4050]: auxpropfunc error no mechanism available

The "/var/log/messages" log is also filled with these error messages.
However, I cannot discover anything inappropriately happening with
Postfix. It appears to working correctly and I have no indication of
mail being lost or refused.

I do not use MySQL with Postfix.

cat /usr/local/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf

# Global Parameters
log_level: 0
pwcheck_method: saslauthd
mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN

This is on a FreeBSD-7.2 system. Has anyone else experienced this
