Subject: Re: /var/run/citadel/citadel.socket]: No such file or directory

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

Got the solution, I had to change the parameter chroot to n (no) in master.cf.

Now I find the mails in Inbox :-)

Mon Mar 10 2014 06:23:12 EDT from alex007 @ Uncensored Subject: Re: /var/run/citadel/citadel.socket]: No such file or directory

Hi jame and dothebart,

thanks for your help.

I could take a little step forward.

I set lmtp of private = n in the master.cf

Now syslog tells the following, after I send a mail to the local user "alex":

Mar 10 11:07:34 8punkt2server postfix/error[31964]: DD087C04F9: to=<alex@8punkt2server.arbeit.de>, relay=none, delay=0.02, delays=0.01/0/0/0.01, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (mail transport unavailable)

Hmm, does that mean I should go deeper into postfix?

I attached the output of postconf -n....

 Tue Mar 04 2014 10:16:53 EST from alex007 @ Uncensored Subject: /var/run/citadel/citadel.socket]: No such file or directory

I appended

local_transport = lmtp:unix:/usr/local/citadel/lmtp.socket

in /etc/postfix/main.cfg

If I send a mail to a system user with "mail" or "alpine"

I found this error in syslog:

Mar  4 15:59:33 8punkt2server postfix/lmtp[1576]: 6DC38C1079: to=<alex@8punkt2server.arbeit.de>, relay=none, delay=2200, delays=2200/0.01/0/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to 8punkt2server.arbeit.de[/var/run/citadel/citadel.socket]: No such file or directory)

 

What does this mean?, "/var/run/citadel/citadel.socket" exists!

Specfically;  how do you have "lmtp' configured in master.cf?  At the least, it needs to be changed to be not private.   (I also have the command changed to "lmtp -v".)

Sun Mar 30 2014 01:33:05 EDT from dhaig21 @ Uncensored Subject: Re: need to change time stamp in citadel to local time

Have installed citadel on Pi and using Thunderbird to get the mail but it stamps msg created on its server with time stamp of 11hr ahead...can you assist?

Is the server it's running out, perhaps set to UTC instead of your local time zone?

The language bar at the top lhs showed en-GB and I did change that to 'C' the only other option ... I have no way of making it en-AU? ... and restarted Citadel  ... so now the Citadel on the Pi and Pi msgs report the current time but the other servers now report a time -11hrs in Citadel although they trap the current time from the respective servers (using $(date +%T) recorded in the body txt...and it gets worse... when I read them into Thunderbird on the notebook moments later the msg from the Pi svr is +11hrs and the other servers are the correct time? I will reboot everything tomorrow and retest just in case cache has a finger in the maths! have also double checked all time stamps...cheers

Your prompt was enough to re-check all the servers tz and needed to to run dpkg-reconfigure tzdata on Pi box as it was still utc for some reason...so problem was a combination of mixed time zones with servers and Citadel language setting...all correct thank you...no reboot required!

Subject: Mail client wrong sender name - can this be fixed?

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

Hey,

 

For security reasons the account usernames on my citadel server don't match the real (given) names, e.g. account name (for login): "somename", preferred display name to be shown at an email: "othername". 

 

If I'm using the webmail everything appears to be alright, because I changed at the users bio the name to be shown to "othername", changed the preferred mail adress and same in the user settings. So if I write an email via the webinterface the correct name and senderadress is shown.

 

Problem: when I use thunderbird as the email client it just sends emails with the account user name as the send name instead of the preferred display name.

 

Is this a citadel related problem, or can I fix this with reconfiguring sth.?

Regards, kaefer

This issue was directly addressed on 2013-aug-25 -- I'm not sure what version number that means, but that's the date in the commit log. When messages are submitted via SMTP they honor the sender's preferred display name.

What version of Citadel server are you using? You might have an old one, in which case a simple upgrade will fix the issue.

Subject: configure citadel as mail server

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

Hello,

I'm a Newbie in Linux and Citadel too, I need to configure citadel with 10 emails that retrieve emails from a POP, configure outlook for users and use the smtp from my hosting, but configure an alternative smtp too. I already installed citadel in a virtual machine, used the default account to try, and configure the retrieval, but it does not retieve any email. I want to use it as an alternative to Exchange but there is not any manual or clear user guide.

Where can I find a guide to configure step by step?

no.  The domains also are either free chooseable by the user, or the admin has to configure the emails for the user.

You can however run multiple citserver/webcit  instances with -h /directory/ on the same host - which will then have nothing in common.

hmm,

I've got a configuration with retrieving mails from a german provider GMX. Most of the german provider switched to TLS/SSL mailconfiguration only.

Now no more GMX mails can retrieve, it seems the built in function of citadel doesn't use SSL/TLS?

I gave the answer for myself with the last post. Remote retrieval -> port 110

does the remote retrieval (pop3) in citadel work withe encyption (STARTTLS over port 110, or pop3 over SSL -> port 995)?

yes - its not possible.

the only workaround would be to locally run an stunnel for the encryption.

Hi,

does SSL/TSL support come to get the mails via pop?

For GMX and other german providers it is the only way to collect the mails. OK. I can use other ways. But a short and directly one is the best.

Thanks and kind regards

Hi Dieter,

it is not difficult to let fetchmail make the job. Then you have an advantage to filter your retrieved mails with the built in filter of citadel too.

 

@dothebard

We should mention in the docs that citadel can't do the job , shouldn't we?

Subject: AD Auth not working

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

Hello,

I am trying to setup Citadel to auth to an Active Directory.

I have previously had it working from a samba 4 AD DC but it doesn't seem to be working now.

I have tried debian, but every time it finishes the install the administrator has a blank password and none of the AD info is in the directory page.

Also tried the debian repo, but it doesn't even ask for info when you select AD auth.

Also tried Ubuntu and same problem.


Anyone know about working with this?

Subject: SMTP Relay for local subnet

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

Hi all, I've got my Citadel 8.14 running happily on a Debian 7 box. I'd like to allow other hosts on the same subnet to use it as a smart relay for sending mails outside my domain. I cannot find on google anything regarding relaying except for this externa "smart relay" you should setup. Does this mean I have to setup a parallel postfix to deliver outside ? I manage my DNS name and don't use provider service mail. Help !

Subject: Re: SMTP Relay for local subnet

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

That is correct, and by design. The purpose of Citadel's SMTP MTA is exclusively to send mail in and out of Citadel.

However, if you can get your other hosts to perform SMTP-AUTH against the Citadel server, it will happily send mail out for you.

Subject: Citadel not listening on 25 or 143

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


Hi Citadel gurus,

I've had a Citadel server running for about 18 months on a debian wheezy box with no problems until recently when webcit started crashing. I found that if I kept webcit shutdown Citadel continued to run ok and I could access email via IMAP.

This week I found citadel had crashed and after some investigation I found that log files had filled by /var partition. After cleaning this up and restarting the box I could not connect to Citadel with webcit or my IMAP client. Looking into it further I found that citadel is not listening on SMTP or IMAP ports (netstat -lan). There are no other processes using these ports.

I can connect to the server via the text Citadel client and can read existing mail etc. I tried reconfiguring via .Aide System configuration General but this has not fixed the problem.

Can anyone advise how to troubleshoot this further?

Is there another way to review / configure the services / ports? What logging can I review to discover the problem?

Thanks,
