Wietse won't sit still ... removal of the lmtp(8) client broke the
previous issue of the revised Dovecot AUTH patch. So I just redid it
for the 20051208 snapshot:


$ md5sum *gz ; ls -l $_
32946afa424b3fbc04c8d9822e711e1f  postfix-2.3-20051208-dovecot.patch.gz
-rw-r--r--   1 rob0 console 7287 2005-12-09 17:09 postfix-2.3-20051208-dovecot.patch.gz

The original patch is here:


Instructions are here (and don't forget the Postfix SASL_README too):



Although my own postfix-2.3-20051208 snapshot compiled with the patch
and is running, it is not tested at all. I'll try with AUTH later and
see if it's working. I will not be able to test with LMTP.

IIUC how this patch affects LMTP, it's only in that the USE_SASL_AUTH
flag was changed to USE_SASL_CLIENT_AUTH. So the only people affected
would be ones who are using Cyrus-SASL for client AUTH.

Please let me know via either list (or offlist, see .sig) if you use
this and have any problems.
