Hmm, You are right, postfix install inserted into config lines:
# Postfix - suggested configuration taken from SASL_README
mechanisms = plain
But right after this comes next, old part:
# Space separated list of wanted authentication
# plain login digest-md5 cram-md5 ntlm rpa apop anonymous gssapi otp
# NOTE: See also disable_plaintext_auth
And Dovecot accepts the last one:(.
So it's my mistake, but I was taught, that Dovecot always give error on
startup, if any double config lines exist.
Now dovecot -n looks better:
mechanisms: plain login
args: cache_key=%u%r%s dovecot
And also shows up:
250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
And Entourage works fine. Also with smtpd_tls_auth_only = yes settings.
Thank You Timo!
