To use Citadel's fetchmail:

Edit /etc/mail/mailer.conf

Replace all instances of "/usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail" with the location of citmail, this should be "/usr/local/citadel/citmail".

Now every script that uses "sendmail" will actually use citmail, no need to update any of your scripts.

Subject: problem with connect to citadel server

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

for two months, the citadel server worked without any problems, while as of today it refused to serve. The problem that occurs is:

 

1. webcit does not work, it pops up a message "This program was unable to connect or stay connected to the Citadel server. Please report this problem to your system administrator." After a few page refreshes "0 Received unexpected answer from Citadel server; bailing out."

 

2. Occasionally, the login page will surprise, while after entering login credentials, we are back to step 1 again.

 

3. i added citadel mailbox to outlook, previously it worked without any problems, until today. 

 

Citadel is installed via docker, I have already done ubuntu update & upgrade, docker upgrade and citadel install itself from docker.

 

Do you have any ideas perhaps? Thanks in advance 

Greetings,

Sebastian

I am unable to find clear documentation regarding how to key Global
email aliases.  The left field is for the alias and the right field
is for the "actual" email address?  So:

You can put in anything, but the right side is usually the name of an account on the system without any domain name attached to it.

Hi, thanks for the hint with the database_cleanup. How can i use the
fetchmail in citadel ?

You don't have to use fetchmail with Citadel.

Go to to the "Advanced" tab in your account and configure "remote retrieval"

You can put in any number of remote POP and/or IMAP email accounts. Citadel will periodically scan those remote mailboxes and pull in new messages.

Replace all instances of "/usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail" with the
location of citmail, this should be "/usr/local/citadel/citmail".

That is correct, but I believe the OP was trying to pull in mail from external accounts, rather than deliver mail from scripts.

For outbound mail I like to use "nullmailer" and configure it with the identity of a real Citadel account. This has the added benefit that it doesn't have to run on the same host as the Citadel server.

Okay so I have a different issue.  I resolved by rebuilding the database, but now I has another issue.

I am receiving mails, but in webcit they are completely blank and in my mail clients, my inbox is empty.  I currently have over 200 messages in there.  I ran /usr/local/ctdlsupport/bin/db_verify and this is the result:

db_verify: BDB0522 Page 0: metadata page corrupted
db_verify: BDB0523 Page 0: could not check metadata page
db_verify: log.0000000001: BDB0090 DB_VERIFY_BAD: Database verification failed

Ah, you know what ... NEVERMIND.  Restored original database from backup and started citserver with port 25 firewalled, somehow that made it not crashy.

After setting auto-purge to forget all messages over 100 days old, my message count dropped immensely and I re-opened port 25.  No issues since, it's running smoothly.

Eventually resolved it by using Easy Install. Apparently the Citadel version in the distro (917-4) has an issue. Installing 972 through Easy Install made averything work again.

Mon Apr 03 2023 12:37:10 EDT from IGnatius T Foobar Subject: Re: Citadel stopped working after Ubuntu release upgrade

You might try deleting all those old sysvinit scripts. Citadel has been using systemd natively for some time now.

It could be that it's getting started up wrong.

And if that doesn't fix it, you might also try ditching the Easy Install distribution entirely and just running the Docker container.

Subject: Strange rooms (folders) in IMAP cannot be deleted

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

Hello,

today I noticed 5 strange folders in my IMAP client with naming like 64a15d9d.0004.0000000007.foldertest1688296861342. Sometimes there is even subfolders like /foldertest in there as well. When I try to delete from IMAP client, Citadel server returns error 'NO ... no such room, or access denied'.

When accessing the account though Webcit I see the same folder as room 9999999999.64a15d9d.0003.0000000007.foldertest1688296861342\foldertest. Again, Cannot edit or delete it, Error 'Higher access is required to access this function'

Is there any way to get rid of these folders?`

Any help is much appreciated.

Ooooh, sorry to hear you got bit by that issue. There is a very old version of Citadel in the debian repository (and therefore in the ubuntu repository) and it is more or less unmaintained. I thought it had been removed, actually.

Happy to hear that the upgrade to a current version went cleanly for you.

When a folder (or the room object representing that folder) is deleted, it does not get deleted from disk immediately. Instead, it is placed into an invalid namespace (9999999999) and gets deleted the next time the auto-purger runs. This is typically overnight in your time zone.

If it doesn't go away by itself, maybe someone tried to rename it back into a valid namespace?

Hello again,

another issue that I currently encounter. Thunderbird doesn't sync anymore with Citadel server even tho settings are correct (nothing has changed).
When I sync with the phone all works well. I compared the logs entries on Citadel server when syncing with phone and with PC and on phone there is a lot going on in the log while on PC it's really just only this:

Update:

I just installed another mail client and it syncs the mail exactly to the same point as Thunderbird (2023-06-15) but everything newer isn't there although I see it on the phone and also on Citadel Web.

Then I installed Thunderbird on my Notebook and it also syncs only up to this point. Strange.

Update 2:

Now I got something useful. In the previous post I said that I can see the mails in Citadel Web but I actually didn't try to open the mails.
So I did this now and the Web GUI shows just "ERROR".
The log:

webcit[10]: GET /msg/727286537 HTTP/1.1
citserver[8]: [mail(3)] MSG4 727286537
citserver[8]: msgbase: CtdlOutputMsg(msgnum=727286537, mode=2, section=<>)
citserver[8]: msgbase: security check fail; message 727286537 is not in 0000000003.Mail
webcit[10]: HTTP: 200 [0.001184] GET /msg/727286537

This only applies to mails after the date that Thunderbird syncs.

What is this "security check" that fails?

We did recently change the location of the repository. https://code.citadel.org is our private GitLab instance and I have just gone ahead and made the landing page go to the 'Explore' screen instead of the login screen, so you should be able to browse it now. You can also create an account using the email address cattalk22@uncensored.citadel.org if you want to; this would allow you to submit merge requests and the like if you felt inclined. We restrict logins to @citadel.org and @uncensored.citadel.org to keep random idiots on the outside from creating accounts.

Now, where was it that you saw a reference to the old git repository address?
I am looking through things and don't see it.

Also ... is there a reason you are attempting to build the container yourself?
You can just pull it from Docker Hub already built and ready to run. That's kind of the point.

Have you really put over 727 million messages through your Citadel system since installing it?

If not, I think your disk might be corrupted.
