Dan... Thanks!

A couple of follow-ups if I might (inline, below)...

Which leads to several questions:

- what's going on being the obvious one - is this a Cyrus SASL behavior, or is there some caching going on elsewhere (i.e, by the postfix smtpd)?

- what's the default setting for the cache timeout?

- is there a way to flush the credentials cache?

See the manpage for saslauthd, specifically the '-c' and '-t' options.

The default timeout is:

saslauthd/cache.h:#define CACHE_DEFAULT_TIMEOUT           28800

yup.. saw the man page, thanks for pointing out the default - can I assume that's in seconds?

Restarting saslauthd should flush its cache.

That's a critical piece of info.
To better understand the scope of the problem, try trouble shooting with
imtest, smtptest, testsaslauthd (with '-s smtp', and '-s imap'), and

Which I had thought to do testsaslauthd differentially with -s smtp and -s imap - to see if they gave different responses. Thanks for the pointers to the other tools!


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
