Dear Ignatius,

With your help I was able to send a hello world email from test Citadel server, through remote SMTP, to my email client, using the 4th example.

However i wasn't able to have the test server working as yet and would like assistance in two more things and would appreciate a Good/Bad idea Opinion.

  1. The email had a From Field that was admin@citadel and thus couldn't be possibly replied to. Can this be fixed?  I tried  site-wide-configuration -> SMTP Servers -> Correct Forged From -> Only Change the From (...)  but no luck. Any idea how this is fixed?
  2. Also any idea how I can receive and categorize emails in Citadel from remote POP3? Tried clicking Rooms -> Mail, then Advanced -> Edit (..) this Room -> Remote Retrieval, there i filled the host, user details, ect but no luck.. any idea how these details are filled properly?

OPINION - Hosting Citadel on Raspberry pi: Good Idea (Easy to use for 10-emails-a-day , Scale-able, replaceable,) or Bad Idea (Potentially painfully slow and unworkable, SD card : doggy drive VS HDD ect, death trap ect.)

Thanks from all three of us, greatly appreciate this,

Vnaster

vnaster, are you trying to configure Citadel to send all outbound email through an external relay, perhaps one that requires authentication?

I'm looking at that wiki page and realizing it's a little less than clear, and should be rewritten. Here's the summary:

You can use any of the following syntaxes as your smart-host (starting with Citadel Server version 907 or newer, since we now let libcurl do all the work:

123.456.789.012 (dotted quad IP address of your smart-host)
mail.relayer.com (domain name of your smart-host)
smtp://username:password@mail.relayer.com (smart host that you have to log in to)
smtp://username:password@mail.relayer.com:587 (smart host that you have to log in to, on a different port number)
smtps://username:password@mail.relayer.com (smart host with login and SSL)

Give that a try, and once we get it working we can work on the other direction.

Keep in mind that when you use a smart-host that requires authentication, very often the smart-host will rewrite the sender's email address to "what it's supposed to be".  Citadel itself will do this, if you use it as a smart-host.   Another example: if you use gmail as a smart-host, it'll rewrite the sender's email address, but not the display name.

If the message is going out from Citadel as "admin@citadel" then you need to set your fully-qualified domain name in the global system configuration, and then edit your account to have a proper email address in that domain.

 

Also any idea how I can receive and categorize emails in Citadel from remote POP3? Tried clicking Rooms -> Mail, then Advanced -> Edit (..) this Room -> Remote Retrieval, there i filled the host, user details, ect but no luck.. any idea how these details are filled properly?

You're in the correct place.  And the newest version of Citadel will try both POP3 and POP3S.  Maybe turn up your logging to "debug" and watch it try to fetch?

 

OPINION - Hosting Citadel on Raspberry pi: Good Idea (Easy to use for 10-emails-a-day , Scale-able, replaceable,) or Bad Idea (Potentially painfully slow and unworkable, SD card : doggy drive VS HDD ect, death trap ect.)

Lots of people do this.  It seems to work fine.  I'd suggest running it on a "real disk" (either HDD or SSD) rather than on an SD card, though.

Many Thanks IGgnatius!

Can we make small donation to Citadel? Is there an IBAN available, how is this possible?

You gave me a good lead i will try out what you have suggested. Scary as it may seem, to me as as accountant, I will try to host an email myself.

Possibly a custom MX record could do the trick and host not the primary emails, risking total oblivion, but a subdomain email.


By the way, I have noticed that my very very new test Citadel server has version 8.24 despite the fact that it was created three days ago..

REMARK/QUESTION: Don't we get the latest version of CITADEL by writing in Debian Terminal the following:

su

apt-get install citadel-mta

apt-get install citadel-suite

It there something in your repository probably that needs updating? Possibly wrong set of commands inputted?

I will check to see on your wiki to see how i update is made properly

Thanks again,

Vnaster,

 

Often the best way to get the most current version is to use Easy Install method, rather than the packages in the repository. Often those packages in the repository are at the mercy of the time of those who have maintained them, and if I remember correctly, the Debian ones have not really been touched since 2015 at least.

 

IG could probably provide more info...

Good afternoon, gents.

Just a note...the last couple of EasyInstall based updates/upgrades have clobbered my hello and goodbye files (as well as everything else).

This is a recent occurrence and one, I'm sure, is an unintended byproduct of something.

Can we fix it, though, prior to the next EasyInstall drop?

Thanks.

I appreciate the offer, but we maintain Citadel simply for the love of the craft. There aren't even any expenses to cover because I have access to a data center.

If you are happy with Citadel, the best thing you can do for us is spread the word about it. We are one of the oldest open source projects in the world (founded in 1981!) but have never been as well-known as one would expect.

Dear Citadel Community,

Managed to install Citadel to the latest version on Trisquel (scraped Debian) following Easy-install instructions and not apt-get .

Also managed to download emails from remote POP3 using directions below.

However I still cannot understand some functions of Citadel after reading FAQ and would greatly appreciate further assistance.

REMARK/PROPOSAL: At the first try of Easyinstall, I was hitting my head against the wall, because I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it (had continuous errors) now working properly on my system. In the end I found your article referring to Debian/Ubuntu prerequisites and solved every problem. Perhaps you could move the Ubuntu/Debian prerequisites article on the FAQ Section since there are awful a lot of people using variants of these OS today.

QUESTION(1): How can we make a small donation to Citadel project?

QUESTION(2): Are there any scripts/rules like outlook for categorizing/moving emails between Rooms? I am asking because although remote POP3 download worked (see below) however it worked on a different folder than the default inbox folder (the one marked MAIL on My folders - POP3 download wouldn't work by no means in any version) on citadel. I was hoping to automatically move emails between rooms and avoid fragmented incoming emails which it is a recipe for Information Overload.

Thanks for everything

It happens on my system too and is a nuisance. Will look into it. 

Gracias!

Hi all,

I'm having a confusing issue with pulling an RSS feed in Citadel.  I have a version 903 setup installed.  I have received the following errors in Aide:

Error while RSS-Aggregation Run of https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/new/.rss 
need a 200, got a 301 ! 
Curl Error message: Citadel RSS Client / 
Redirect header points to: https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/new/.rss 
Response text was: 

There seems to be something weird in the libcitadel's URL handling code, so I thought maybe putting in the port number would help:

Error while RSS-Aggregation Run of https://www.reddit.com:443/r/videos/new/.rss 
need a 200, got a 0 ! 
Curl Error message: Empty reply from server / Server returned nothing (no headers, no data) 
Response text was: 

 

I don't have the issue when pulling via CURL itself - if I test with:

curl -v --user-agent "Mozilla/4.73 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.15 i686)" https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/new/.rss

There seems to be no issue.

Any thoughts on whether this should work at all or not?

Hi all,

Is there any place where new release notifications are posted?  The News page on the website (in the rolling release article) says to look at the Download page... the download page doesn't have current version information on it anywhere that I can see.  Sooo... how are we supposed to know when it's time to look at an update?

Thanks!

Subject: Problem with TDAP

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

Hello!

Hopefully someone can help me out with the issue I'm having with Citadel and The Dreaded Auto Purger...

The other day, I discovered that a rogue process on my Citadel server has sent over 1.2 million e-mails to "postmaster". These have gathered in the Aide folder on the Main Floor, accessible by the Administrator login. Clearly, this is A Bad Thing. In an effort to get rid of them, I set the expiry policy on the room to 1 day - this should get rid of all but a few thousand emails, the rest of which would disappear the following day. Except that's not what happened - instead, the Berkely DB blew up to fill the hard-drive, and killed the citadel server process.

 

After some head-scratching and a db_recover/db_archive, all was well again. Until TDAP kicked in once again and started going mental.

 

To try something out, I rolled a new (and very expensive VM) with 1.4TB of storage on it, installed Citadel, copied the 7G of citadel database files and fired it up.  It's been running for about 3 hours now, the database directory is up to 220GB and over 22,000 .log files.  Seems like something is waaay out of whack here, but what??

 

OK, I do have a couple of bad settings: Journaling of e-mails is ENABLED (but no e-mail address set), and full-text indexing is set. I've turned both off for the moment, but I guess because TDAP is already in session, they won't make any difference. Or maybe they'll make things worse...

 

In case it matters, I'm running Citadel 8.24, on Centos 7 with ext4 filesystem.

 

Thanks in advance!
Ade.

Some additional notes...

 

I ran the process overnight on the BFO linux box. After about 8 hours, it maxed the 1.4TB storage and crashed out.

 

Earlier today, I tried another tactic - I set up a 2nd Citadel on another new VM (smaller one this time...) and used ctdlmigrate to transfer the database. This succeeded, but when I set TDAP off.... yep, the disk usage climbed inexorably upwards until it ran out of space again.

 

Short of trawling through 7gb of XML export.... is there anything I can do to get rid of these messages?

 

Cheers,

Ade.

AdeV: do you have your site configuration set to "Automatically delete committed database logs" ? If not, please turn on that option.

If it's the logs that are piling up, you will find them as /usr/local/citadel/data/log.********** and they will be 10 MB each. Be careful; you can't just delete them. If you have Citadel configured to delete them automatically, they will be deleted when they are no longer needed, in which case there should never be more than one or two of them on disk at any given time.

If it's not the logs that are piling up, please do a "ls -lh /usr/local/citadel/data" and we can see which file is the problem.
