    Exim: Unable to send mail w/ new users

    I installed exim and have been able to successfully use it as an smtp server. My test setup was as follows:

    email client uses, my login, and password

    The email is successfully forwarded to the appropriate recipient. However, when I create a new user, and test it's email capabilities, it does not work. I get a 535 error:

    535 Incorrect authentication data

    I have double checked the login and password, and I've tried this on multiple accounts. Is there an issue with how I'm creating the users? (useradd)

    Exim has a number of options for authenticating users - did you pick the PAM option:
    I think the server saw what was required of it and just committed suicide instead.

    Not that I know of, here is the section containing my auth:

    begin authenticators
    driver = plaintext
    public_name = PLAIN
    server_prompts = :
    server_condition = "${perl{checkuserpass}{$1}{$2}{$3}}"
    server_set_id = $2
    driver = plaintext
    public_name = LOGIN
    server_prompts = "Username:: : Password::"
    server_condition = "${perl{checkuserpass}{$1}{$2}}"
    server_set_id = $1

    Figured it out. These email accounts were 'sub' accounts, which did not have logins to the actual machine. i.e: email accounts for an existing account.

    Thus, the usernames had to be their FQDM. ([email protected])

    I'm still not sure why the users I added to localhost didn't work -- I'll look into that some day...
