Re: Using SMTP with OpenEMM 2013

Hello, these commands should do all the work, so login as user "openemm" and use these commands (ensure that there is no system wide MTA configured and running): # # Stop a possible running OpenEMM ./bin/openemm.sh stop # # Enable the usage of semu.py instead of sendmail ./bin/sendmail-disable.sh # ...

Re: Can't send mail with Smar_Relay (wthout Sendmail)

This is a "general" error message, please check the logfile for "xmlback" for further details (and either add the content to this thread or, if the error is obvious, post the reason/solution here, too, please.) -- ud P.S.: If there is no logfile for xmlback, then try to start the program without any...

Re: soft/hard bounce and update.py question

The rules in bav.rule are used to categorize what the remote system think is a hard bounce. To avoid disabling recipient addresses that are just reported as hard bounce due to misconfiguration we handle these bounce, where we not quite sure as soft bounces. If these are real hard bounces, they will ...

Re: Bounces with Smart Relay

It depends on the smart relay. If it acts as a "write through" relay it can pass instant bounces directly back to the sending instance (which is the server running OpenEMM.) Otherwise all instant bounces are sent back to the sending instance via mail (and is handled by the delayed bounce management....

Re: xmlback reports syntax error

There is no known issue running (the 32bit) version of xmlback in a 64bit environment. This looks more like an error has occurred during generation of the XML file. So you should first test the XML file for integrity (e.g. using xmllint) and scan the logfile of the webcontainer for further informati...

Re: What's maillog file used for?

The sendmail logfile is read to collect bounce information which are occurring during sending.

To avoid an overrun of the disk space, ask your system administrator to install a proper logfile handling system (e.g. lograotate.)

Re: C code in OpenEmm

Hello Ruth, thank you for your question, I'm glad to see that someone is still interested in C while the world is only talking about Java these days. 1.) The C code is primary written to create the final mails. While the Java code retrieves the informations from the database and collect them in a XM...

Re: Some troubles of bounce management

Your configuration seems to work as designed. Depending on the received message the rules (as defined in bav.rule) do not match so the mail is forwarded. The rules are very limited to avoid losing mails and, on the other hand, accepts also mails, which are not recognized as bounce message. Be free t...

You're right, all python modules use the file agn.py to access the database, so to connect to a remote server, you have to change this line.

That looks okay .... One possible thing I can think of: if sendmail should use a smart relay, it may ignore the route given in /etc/mail/mailertable and really send everything to the smart relay. But the entry from the logfile in your first post states, that the mail is routed to /home/openemm/conf/...

Thats strange (btw, its filter, not filters.) Could you please look through the logfiles under /home/optnemm/var/log starting with a timestamp for error or warning messages? And can you do a:

Code: Select all

$ ls -l /home/openemm/bin/scripts
to chechk for missing links.

Here you mix up two things. The file /home/openemm/conf/smart-relay is only used in a non sendmail enviroment, where sending is managed by the internal MTA. So this file has no effect in your case. On the other hand, it looks like you did everything right. If you do not send mail using a smart relay...

It may work, but it is not intended (and supported) to work. If you use semu, then you should redirect port 25 to 8025, as semu runs under user permission and is not allowed to bind to a port lower than 1024.

If you have already sendmail running, why do you not use it for OpenEMM?

The retry comment in the logfile is here missleading. If you have entered a hostname instaed of an IP address as the smart-relay, semu resolves all assigned IP addresses for this name and (re)tries to send the mail over the remaining IPs, if the previous delivery failed with a non permanent error.

The authentication method cannot be specified, the module (smtplib.py) looks for available authentication methods provided by the server and uses one, that it supports. If there is no match, there is no easy way to fix it.

Both of you examples to specify the authentication token are correct.
