Backend server IP address should be returned by auth_http in the
Auth-Server header. See authentication protocol description here:

Thanks for your respond.
So we must 1st setup an HTTP authentication server (PHP or something )
for
auth_http, right ?
Could you tell me a little more how to setup this HTTP authen URL ?

In my example:
NGINX server IP : 192.168.1.100
POP3 / SMTP server IP : 192.168.1.101

Thanks.

There were couple of examples here:

I found that link before,
Things I wonder is that where “localhost:9000/cgi-bin/auth;” is coming
from? Is it a http URL ?

I don’t know how to define “localhost:9000/cgi-bin/auth” URL for
auth_http
Sorry if my question is so silly. I’m very new to NGINX.

Thanks

It’s an auth http script URL - it’s a script you are expected to
write to check passwords/return appropriate backends in your
system. Try looking at other configuration examples at the link
provided to see complete examples with some simple auth scripts
included.

Below is my config file

It’s an error from your backend server. Please note that nginx
doesn’t try to authenticate against SMTP backends. Instead, it
uses xclient to pass username to a backend, but in your config
it’s switched off.

Thanks,
It works for me now.
The error “550 5.7.1 Client does not have permissions to send as this
sender” is because our SMTP back-end did not accept SMTP relay from
NGINX.
Configure SMTP backend allow NGINX relay fix my error.

I used xclient-> on, when I try to auth login, SMTP backend return error
with code “500 5.3.3 Unrecognized command” like my SMTP does not support
xclient ( I guess)

Thanks
