Topic: iRedmail stopped sending mails

Kindly assist me in resolving this problem; the iRedmail server suddenly stopped sending mails. That is, I could not send mails from any user account anymore.

Looking at the mail log, I found this:

May  3 16:50:24 mail postfix/smtpd[3010]: warning: mail.x.x.x[127.0.0.1]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: Invalid authentication mechanism
May  3 16:50:24 mail roundcube: Invalid response code received from server (535):
May  3 16:50:24 mail postfix/smtpd[3010]: disconnect from mail.x.x.x[127.0.0.1]

May  3 16:50:54 mail postfix/smtpd[3010]: connect from mail.x.x.x[127.0.0.1]
May  3 16:50:54 mail postfix/smtpd[3010]: warning: mail.x.x.x[127.0.0.1]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: Invalid authentication mechanism
May  3 16:50:54 mail roundcube: Invalid response code received from server (535):

I will appreciate all the support you can give me on this.

Thanks

Re: iRedmail stopped sending mails

I believe Dovecot is not staring for some reason. Check your Dovecot logs to see if dovecot started.
