    Hi There, i've just upgraded my 6.06 server to 8.04 (sun ultra60), however I can't get the email configs to work at all anymore.. i've tried to rebuild the email settings as per the perfect setup tutorial, however no joy abounds...I can see mail in /var/mail/adza however i can't get a client to download that mail... is there a setting i need to set to allow the server to accept connections from clients on the internal network somehow? I am totally stumped here, been struggling with this for over a week now.. :S

    an update

    as an update, on the tutorial there is a section where you 'check' everything is okay, by telnet localhost 25 and then ehlo localhost. The resulting outputs say that if you see 250-STARTTLS and 250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN then all is good. When doing this i see the 250-STARTTLS however the other line for me shows 250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5.. is this causing my issues? How can i get this to resolve to what is specified in the tutorial?

    Any errors in your mail log?
    What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf and /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf?

    mail errors

    Hi Falko, thanks for the reply.. here's my main.cf and smtpd.conf (sorry bout the late reply --- assignments, work arrgggh :mad:)... the mail log shows error in authentications though, i think it's the sasl configs... however my smtpd.conf has only two lines

    Code:
    pwcheck_method: saslauthd
    mech_list: plain login
    
    here's my main.cf file as well

    Code:
    # See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version
    
    
    # Debian specific:  Specifying a file name will cause the first
    # line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
    # is /etc/mailname.

    smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
    biff = no

    tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom
    home_mailbox = Maildir/
    virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual
    
    here's the last couple of lines from my /var/log/mail.log file

    Code:
    Nov 16 20:50:44 sellers authdaemond.plain: modules="authpam", daemons=5

    but's it's what's in the auth.log that i think is the issue...

    Code:

    The client (thunderbird) keeps telling me theres no mail on the server but the /var/mail/adza mailfile keeps expanding everyday... I can see the email using mutt from the cli on the server, but i kinda need to DL into a client.. hehe... any help would be muchly appreciated :)

    shouldn't the Maildirs be in ~/Maildir?
    At least that's what I read form the config. But then, you do the local delivery with procmail. What is it's config?

    adza New Member

    thanks sjau, this may sound like a stupid question but where's it's config? I can only find a reference to procmail in /usr/bin ... it does have file permissions of -rwsr-sr-x... i've never seen s as a file permission before.. only increasing the confusion...

    server-wide configs are in /etc somewhere. The procmail config should be directly in the /etc folder. Not sure for the name though.
     
  8. sjau

    sjau Local Meanie Moderator

    the file is /etc/procmailrc

    I have the following on top:

    Code:
    verbose=yes
    LOGFILE=/var/log/procmail.log
    
    DEFAULT=$HOME/Maildir/
    MAILDIR=$HOME/Maildir
    
    I'd suggest you try that also and afer editing the file restart procmail and then run

    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/procmail.log
    
    Then send yourself an email and check if (a) procmail really intercepts it [it should as you say in the postfix main.cf that procmail should] and (b) check where it goes.

    If the mails are now correctly delivered, then comment the first two lines (verbose/logfile) out.

    The tutorial says that i should telnet to localhost 25, the ehlo localhost 25, if i see the lines
    Code:
    250-STARTTLS
    250-AUTH
    
    then everything is fine... however, i see the lines...

    Code:
    250-STARTTLS
    250-AUTH NTLM LOGIN PLAIN DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5
    250-AUTH=NTLM LOGIN PLAIN DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5
    
    and the authentication doesn't work for sending mail... ??

    Hi Falko, it seems to be authentication that is the issue... received this email from the system this morning...
