   That's two of us asking. I need Cyrus SASL because if I specify
SASL=dovecot postfix will not start.

   My outbound mail must be relayed through my ISP, but not the inbound. I
would prefer to not use Cyrus.

   I've read that several times.

   Let me build -3.0.0 with SASL=dovecot and upgrade. Then when I run
'/etc/rc.d/rc.postfix start' I'll capture what /var/log/maillog shows and
post that here. Will that help?
