Subject: multidomain

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

Okay I have problems with the following setup:

I have set up a citadel server on a raspberry pi. (domain names may be altered)

I configured domain name (example) and some users and aliases for

later I added to the admin->domain names but left as the fqdn

(btw all mx-records are set)


after that things went strange:

When I create a new user "username" it writes as its primary adress but it can only recieve mails sent to even when I change it's primary adress to it only recieves mails for the domain...

users created before recieve messages for


internally an error message saying invalid recipient and when sending using an external service citadel responds with a 550 error code.

Okay, I have tried using as FQDN and this results in the following:


Adressbook entries of new users now user as domain but recieve mails for


it seems like citadel uses the FQDN as domain to assign to new users but internally uses the domain not set as FQDN.

Subject: setup utility trying to connect to something that doesn't exist yet?

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


Playing around with the current version of citadel, compiled source from scratch, apparently version 903.

Got libcitadel and citadel packages compiled & installed.  When getting to the next setup of running citadel's 'setup' util, it tries to connect to a running citadel server (possibly cart before the horse here?) and bails after a handful of attempts at trying to hit the socket.

It says "Setup could not connect to a running Citadel server.: No such file or directory /home/citadel/citadel-admin.socket"

If there's changes in the setup procedure, the website nor readme files seem to have updated info.

What's the current expectation?

It says "Setup could not connect to a running Citadel server.: No
such file or directory /home/citadel/citadel-admin.socket"

Did you start the Citadel server? You do have to run the "citserver" program before you run setup. The packages and the Easy Install build do that for you, but if you build from source you'll need to start citserver on your own.

You can either put it in your rc.local (something like "citserver -d" to put it in the background) or you can write a systemd service file to have the system start it up for you. Once citserver is running, you can run setup.
Setup needs to talk to a running server.

I hope that helps!

someone got an idea ?

thanks a lot :)

Please install the openssl-dev or openssl-devel package (I don't know what it's called on Arch Linux).

In the past I wasted hours on reading troubleshooting pages and
debugging - today, after 1.5 years I only spend 4 hours for
installation and setting up/testing a working backup system for my
Citadel server.

Very, very glad I did the move. Thanks to all people involved. :)

Thanks for the kind words. We work hard to make Citadel an "out of the box" experience rather than something "sold as a kit"

First, thanks for the response in such a short time frame, appreciated!

Initially I hadn't started the citserver as there doesn't seem to be an indication to do so (aside from the fact that 'setup' fails with it's expectation of it).  I haven't seen a reference to needing to start citserver before setup anywhere - is this something that changed in the past couple of years?  I seem to recall that setup used to expect citserver to be not running in the past.

From the citadel source "README.txt":

3. ./configure && make && make install

4. Run the "setup" program"

In the administration manual (, the implication is compile, install, then:

cd /usr/local/citadel
And even more fun, it says "“setup” will then shut down the Citadel service if it is found to be running."
At any rate, I grabbed the easyinstall script to find out what exactly it was doing to get a new install going and could see the process in there.  Are there bugs that we can file against the documentation?

Hello, is it possible in Citadel configure address book to permit add extra mails with information related (work, personal, another personal), affinity with others persons (mother, friend, etc), and other custom fields?

Subject: FQDN in 220 SMTP response.-

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

In a previous post, IGnatius explain about if you want to rebuilt a server and, if the new server is similar to the old one, you can copy the whole /citadel directory and the new server must be work. That's right, in my case ;-)

OK, I make this but I have an issue looking for correct it. My new server has the name "svr03" and the old one named "svr01". Then, the answer

220 ESMTP Citadel server ready. [719 ms]

must be

It seems like Citadel don't take this name asking the server their FQDN. ¿Where can I modify this? Thank you!

Citadel does not get the FQDN from the operating system, except when it is first set up.

Edit your system configuration.  There is a place for it there.

If I want to enter a spam filter on uncensored that will only keep email from uncensored users and reject everything else, what would be the correct setup?

If you're sure that your incoming non-local email is absolutely 100.0% spam, I can slap a blacklist_to directive on your address, which would block every email coming in to that address and also train the filters. Intra-site mail would be unaffected.

So yes. Do exactly that. I would like email from Citadel peoples only. I received over 200 pieces of spam the last 3 days.

It's getting really difficult to run an effective spam filter. This leads me to conclude that 99% of spam is sent by people working for Google and Yahoo, who are doing so to sabotage all email servers that they do not control.

Subject: LDAP support for Citadel Easy Install

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

Is there a way to tell what the dependencies are for ldap support?


I have compiled in LDAP support before, but that was a few years back and I cannot remember all the steps I needed to do to make it work. I do remember I modified the easy install and placed a copy in the development room, but I do not have access to that any more.


Can anyone help me out?
