I have a Postfix MTA configured to which I can perfectly log in from remote via SMTP (Thunderbird, Python, etc.) but when trying to use the same script with the same credentials while locally on the same system, it refuses the connection. Specifically when using smtplib's
login method, I get the following exception:
SMTPException: SMTP AUTH extension not supported by server.
This is in
Aug 7 22:37:32 myhostname postfix/smtpd: connect from mydomain.com[18.104.22.168] Aug 7 22:37:32 myhostname postfix/smtpd: Anonymous TLS connection established from mydomain.com[123.123.123]: TLSv1.2 with cipher ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384 (256/256 bits) Aug 7 22:37:32 myhostname postfix/smtpd: lost connection after EHLO from mydomain.com[123.123.123] Aug 7 22:37:32 myhostname postfix/smtpd: disconnect from mydomain.com[123.123.123]
This isn't of much help. My postfix configuration can be found here, of which I would assume mostly this part is interesting:
myhostname = mail.mydomain.com smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes smtpd_sasl_exceptions_networks = $mynetworks smtpd_sasl_local_domain=$myhostname smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
However, I don't spot much of options that prevent this login. Can anyone be of help?
