In pre-compilation time (configuration) there is option:
If you don't have that defined, and have <security/pam_appl.h>
header file, then your system is compiled with PAM support.
Oh.. and is linked with "-lpam" library while making smtpserver.
After that, this file (that you found about) is needed in the system:
------- /etc/pam.d/smtpauth-login -----------
auth required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow
auth required /lib/security/pam_nologin.so
account required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
(Just those four lines, not the preceeding filename line)
However this file recipe is positively known to work only
at Linux (RedHat's at least), and Solaris. I recall that
HP-UX and perhaps AIX might also have PAM support.
Are there possibly some different paths needed in
that case, that I don't know...
You didn't mention your system environment.
