I'm following the excellent HowTo at:
I've had good success so far. I have mail working just fine, and can
send and receive mail from the outside world using mutt from the
command line. However, when I telnet to the smtp to authenticate
users, I get this error when I invoke the "auth plain" command:
538 5.7.0 Encryption required for requested authentication mechanism
This does not throw any message/error to any of the logs in /var/log
I have the latest version of openssl insalled (using apt-get install) . . .
I don't quite understand what the error message is telling me -- any
help would be much appreciated.
