From version 2.1.17 of cyrus-sasl2, realms are dropped from usernames. This means that when authenticating against an SQL with usernames in the format "user at example.com", SMTP-AUTH will never authenticate because saslauthd will only pass it the "user" part without "@example.com".
A good discussion on this subject:
Using cyrus-sasl2 v 2.1.17 and later try authenticating against SMTP-AUTH using a "user at example.com" username format, and watch the SQL logs for what is being passed.
- Don't allow cyrus-sasl2 v 2.1.17 or 2.1.18 to be installed?
- Put --with-authdaemond option as available to the port so that a workaround can be quickly installed?
- Get some more blurb into the compile process so that admin is aware of the changes as opposed to blindly nuking his install (and this was not a fun thing to debug!)
