I am attempting to relay through Amazon's SES just to make deliverability a little better on my family's email server. I am very new to iRedMail, coming from Zimbra.

I followed this guide to try and configure postfix to relay through Amazon's SES

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/ … stfix.html

and I am getting the error:

Jun 10 11:50:09 mx postfix/smtp[2806]: 4G17Bf2DFKz4yqN5: to=<Recipient Email Address>, relay=email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com[34.196.159.238]:587, delay=1367, delays=1365/0.02/1.8/0, dsn=4.7.0, status=deferred (SASL authentication failed; cannot authenticate to server email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com[34.196.159.238]: no mechanism available)

I've read through the forums, several have had this issue and I've tried a few things, but I still can't figure it out. I am hoping someone has some ideas because I am out of them.

Re: SASL authentication failure: No worthy mechs found

Disregard. I did a minimal installation of RHEL which came without SASL and the appropriate plain module.

This fixed my issue:

yum install cyrus-sasl{,-plain}
