However when I try and configure an email client it can not connect.

I tried to telnet to port 25 from a terminal on the server and get this


Generally this means that something else on your system is either occupying or blocking port 25.

Check for:

* Other email programs (exim, postfix, etc) installed on the system -- remove them

* Any sort of firewall script (iptables, firewalld, etc) restricting port 25

i think i isolated the issue, citadel isn't binding to Port 25

If the Citadel Server cannot bind to any of its ports, it will post a diagnostic message in the Aide> room telling you what happened.

Where is citadel server mail logs?

Citadel writes to the normal syslog. Please consult the manual for rsyslogd and feel free to turn up the log retention for "citserver" if you need to.

Is there a way to make auto-discovery working on Citadel?

Without knowing what "outlook" is looking for, it's difficult to answer this question.

Generally speaking, you want to set your Citadel server as your SMTP server (port 587) and IMAP server (port 143) with your Citadel username or email address as the login credential.

Hi,

My mail got bounced with this message "This message does not pass authentication checks (SPF and DKIM both )"

 

How do I configure SPF and DKIM on latest version of citadel? My OS is Debian 11

Successfully configured SPF. Now how about DKIM? Any recent documents to follow?

Found docs on dkimproxy and applied but the moment I put 127.0.0.1:10027 in smarthost setting, email sent just did not arrive to destination. No bounce whatsoever.

Citadel does not have built-in support for DKIM. If you want to sign messages with DKIM you will need to add a third-party utility.

However, here at citadel.org we have found that SPF + DMARC is sufficient.

Can someone tell me how to install Citadel server on Debian 11? It looks like it is not supported (only on 10.3). Thank you!

Citadel runs just fine on Debian 11 (in fact, that's what this site is running).
What you won't find anymore is .DEB packages in the repository, which is just fine because they tended to be outdated anyway.

Try running the container version using Docker, or run the Easy Install.
Either one will produce a running system that is excellent on Debian.

This is strange. I typed my message on my system, then tried to paste it here in forum. Looks like I need to re-type it directly here.

I have VPS running debian 1 GB memory. I do not have domain name. Will citadel quick install work? What info will I need to input?

I need a mail server.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

To run *any* mail server you need control of a domain. You can definitely run Citadel on a 1 GB VPS. Easy Install will work, or you can get running even faster using the Docker version.

But yes, you do need the domain, unless you intend to intend to have email addresses that look like "ucme3@vps-12-34-56.xyz.myprovider.com". And even then, you'll have trouble sending mail to anyone with even a remotely good spam filter.

At the minimum, you'll need to set up MX and SPF records in your domain.
If your VPS provider allows you to change your Reverse DNS record to whatever you want, that's a plus, but it's not strictly required.

I hear that I will need domain name, MX records, SPF records, VPS server. Anything else? I am not experienced with some of these. After more research I could try. Or can someone do install and setup for me? And tell me more about mail. Can I send and receive anywhere on WWW? And will citadel work on off-line localhost test enviroment, or does it need to connect to a special on-line site?

Can someone refresh me on exactly how you set up ssh so that it automatically loads citserver on a client establishing a SSH session?

I've forgotten a bunch of things - and I'm in a bit of a hurry to get back up to speed. I can RTFM if necessary and re-teach myself, but I'm hoping this will avoid that.

Do you mean that you want to connect to the text mode client when a user connects with SSH?

If so, create a system account (usually called `bbs`) with no password, and make its shell `/usr/local/citadel/citadel`.

That is what I meant - I forgot how to set a user's shell. I'm sure it is a . file in their home directory, right? 

The thing has been so rock-solid on Proxmox I've gotten rusty on Linux again. 

But I figured out all my problems. Well, not all of them - but the ones that were troubling me today. I always do that, I come running here freaking out, hoping for answers from you experts, then while I'm waiting, I eff around with it until I figure it out myself. It is like a ritual for me at this point.
