Subject: Re: SMTP authentication problem

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



Have you tried using Telnet to connect to your SMTP server and seeing what happens there when you compose the e-mail? 

https://www.itgeared.com/articles/1102-smtp-commands-how-to-send-email-using/

If you haven't - that might give you better insight into what is happening. 

Citadel is in a very active development phase - with a LOT of team testing going on - and a major rewrite of the underlying code and distribution model taking place. 


The end result should be a more supportable core application, that is easier to install, maintain and repair, that runs leaner with tighter code. 

A lot of the problems in Citadel right now are legacy issues - and figuring out what is causing them, our guess is often as good as the developers. I've upset the developers with flooding this forum with "questions," which really amounted to me working through the issues myself and figuring out my own answers. 

I think part of it is that the development team could spend time building labs and trying to recreate and fix problems on older versions of Citadel that won't be relevant to the next major production rc of Citadel - because the code is changing so much... 

Or they can put that time into getting that rc to us and providing us a more stable Citadel that is more supportable for them. 

Keeping in mind, that Citadel is a FOSS volunteer supported project and team that doesn't even suggest a patreon or other compensation. I've never seen any of the developers "pass the plate". 

Most of the issues I experience with Citadel are a combination of it being poorly documented/documentation being out of date - and operator error in configuring or setup. I end up spending a lot of time reverse engineering what Citadel is doing and learning a TON about Linux and suddenly a light is revealed on what I've done wrong that caused my issue. Mail is a complex and difficult to manage service/platform in general - one of the harder servers in any data-center to administer. There are a lot of different moving parts, it still relies on some fairly low-level protocols and is very picky about having everything running optimal at your network layer and security layer, it is *super* important to people and it is a favorite vector of attack - and it generally relies on some sort of back-end database - so it is one of the most "multi-discipline" servers in the DC that a person can manage. And - because it is kind of a utility server - not seen as a critical line of business application server but instead a kind of support role - it generally doesn't get the attention it deserves. Lots of IT staff in lots of IT departments manage e-mail servers without understanding how to test SMTP from a telnet session by hand-crafting an email there the old fashioned way, or the importance of correct reverse lookup records, or a billion other complexities of making an email server work right. 

Personally - I just run Citadel as a BBS - and I've got the internet mail disabled. Running your own mail server is a royal pain-in-the-ass that is difficult to manage and secure and requires you to be at the top of your IT game - and if you read through this room - you'll see the vast majority of the questions have to do with people attempting to host their own e-mail servers.

But I suspect the next version of Citadel will be a major step forward in making this all easier and also more supportable - so I recommend you stick with Citadel. I've administered Exchange for corporations, I've managed SMTP servers, I've provided support for clients running mail servers linked into VoIP voice-mail systems. Citadel is one of the *best* mail-server solutions out there. Easy to comprehend, configure, administer and backup. But it is still e-mail... one of the earliest internet protocols/apps invented and one of the LEAST changed from the start.

Tried SMTP via port 25 no encryption, but also using port 465 - with SSL enabled - keeps popping credentials question and port 587 STARTTLS - credentials quesions

'Your email server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password"

email server rejects login using username/password. But they work fine for POP3 logon......

So Citadel & Pi should be configured correctly...

Sometimes it takes me longer to come up with the subject line than the email to write.
And yes, I managed to inculcate this habit of writing the subject; because I managed at some point to activate not to send messages without subject with another server; although suddenly in a hurry I can forget it.

The help documentation is badly out of date and much of what isn't available probably isn't applicable anymore, anyhow - and soon is likely to radically change.

What is available will get you through *most* of what you are likely to encounter with current builds using the EasyInstall method - even if you're not super Linux savvy - but you've got to kind of piece things together in some parts. 

When the newest release hits, which seems imminent - I suspect that there will be a dramatic rewriting of the support web pages at citadel.org.

Sorry, I think I've mislead you. <Space> will let me continue reading the current message. I wish to do the opposite: Stop reading the current message.


For example, on a Linux system I can use the "more" command to view a file. After a screenful of text appears, it pauses and waits for me to hit a key. I can press <space> to continue reading, or press <q> to quit back to the prompt.
Can I do something like that here? In the middle of a long message, what key can I press to quit out of that message and let me start reading the next one?

The Citadel certificates go in /usr/local/citadel/keys

Citadel just kind of reads the buffer of messages, either .read Old (reverse on this version) or .read new... then it just keeps going. 

I think what you need to do is at the room prompt, enter .R(ead) C(onfiguration)

Then it will probably say "Prompt after each message: No" 

You then need to .E(nter) C(onfiguration) 

And change "Prompt after each message" from NO to Yes. 


Then you'll get more options... 


Oh wait... here it is... in .Enter Configuration one of the options is <N>ext and <S>top work at paginator prompt. 

You want that set to YES so that you can <N>ext a message when it pauses. 




30 years of Citadel - and I still remember these text client commands pretty well.

not to derail the topic, but I now have the text telnet port server working at citadel.smashbot.com . I have learned that some citadel users find the text client preferable to use because of how the content is presented. With that in mind, I would love to help debug and improve the server side of the text client experience.

Subject: Re: SMTP authentication problem

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

Goodmorning,

 

First thank you for responding, and sorry for not replying sooner, i wasn't checking the forum every the day for a while.

I recognize Citadel is a huge and brilliant amount of work from volunteers, and as i said i like it very much, but if i cannot get the basics to work, i cannot use it.

 

to my issue :

As you can see from the extract of the log file in my initial post , connection to citserver on SMTP is established from the mailclient.

I showed both the POP3 session and the SMTP session, and while the POP3 session functions properly, the logfile shows that the SMTP session is initiated, but fails on authentication

This is the same on all three available ports  25, 465 and 587.

As the Citadel user has only one password, and i can set outlook and an android phone to use the same password for POP3 and SMTP, i must conclude that Citserver authentication is the problem.

(And the comment of another user with the same problem after updating to release 931 strenghtens my conclusion)

 

Sending/receiving mail internetwide from the webclient is working fine, i just cannot use a mailclient to send it.  (And using IMAP is not an option)

 

Best regards, Bart

But - have you tried connecting to the SMTP port via Telnet to verify what is happening manually?

Interestingly enough - today while searching for SSL errors I get from Citadel - I found the following link:


https://www.linode.com/community/questions/10102/cant-receive-email-with-citadel

Where other people are complaining about the same issue - but also... where people are having trouble with sending/receiving mail.


And the suggestion made by the people trying to help involved connecting to Port 25 via Telnet to see what was happening.


I don't think my error, which is in this guy's logs...

"SSL_accept failed: errval=5, retval=-1 (Input/output error)"

Is related to send errors using SMTP - but it is interesting that it isn't just me getting this error in my logs.

Anyhow - maybe the link above will assist you.
