Are you using Woody or Sarge? If Woody, seriously consider one of the
1) Switch to Sarge
2) Get backports of Postfix 2.1 and SASL2
3) Install from source
The versions in Woody are beyond ancient. If you have an already working setup
they are OK. Otherwise, getting them to work is a royal pain as there is
or no existing documentation for the versions that old. I managed to do it
last year, but there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Incidentally, you may want to check if postfix is running in a chroot. If it
is, take it out and it is possible that will fix your problem.
