Setting Up Email Server

Support section for FREESCO v0.3.x 3rd Party Packages

Postby BomBtek » Thu Aug 30, 2007 4:07 pm

This is what I have now:

<span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%'>
######################################################################

begin routers

### This router causes all non-local addresses to be sent to the single host
### smtp.your.isp
### IF your isp blocks OUTGOING smtp connections (i.e. connections to port 25
### on machines which are not your IPS's mail server) you will *have* to use
### this setting to be able to send external mail. This MUST be the first router

smart_route:
driver = manualroute
domains = !+local_domains
transport = remote_smtp
route_list = * mail.earthlink.net

begin transports


# This transport is used for delivering messages over SMTP connections.

remote_smtp:
driver = smtp
hosts_require_auth = mail.earthlink.net

</span>

Is that not correct?

[EDIT]
I looked at the link you posted, but it wasn't much help as the information on SMTP auth was a bit above my head. I wouldn't know how to choose a specific way to go, not to mention being able to compile a custom copy of exim for freesco..

I don't think so. You need to change <span style='color:#FF0000'>mail.earthlink.net</span> into <span style='color:#009900'>smtpauth.eartlink.net</span>

You're my hero.. It works finally.. thanks for all the help, couldn't have done it without you all.

Anything further you guys reccommend for my email server? Besides maybe AV or Spam?

I am trying to configure exim + pop3da and using an outlook to retrieve the mail but I get the following error.
The host 'mail.class.homeip.net' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'mail.class.homeip.net', Server: 'mail.class.homeip.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11004, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D[/

I tried to follow this thread to configure the exim but with no success. Do I have to configure pop3da and how? Any ideas?

@mondo: mail.class.homeip.net doesn't look like a valid mail address to me, unless you've enabled wildcards for your DynDNS domain?

Are you testing from 'outside' (via PC over internet) or from the 'inside' (client PC in your FREESCO LAN)? Did you try with the IP address of your FREESCO instead?

AFAIK pop3da doesn't need any config and runs out of the box. It does block POP3 access via the internet though (for obvious security reasons), so you'll have to remove the firewall rule if you want to read your POP box over the internet (not recommended).

[edit]
update: I've tried to lookup both mail.class.homeip.net and class.homeip.net and both failed to resolve to an IP address!

Sorry here is the correct mail address " winam.homeip.net " I am trying from internal pc client and how do I use my FREESCO ip address ?

[root@Freesco] telnet winam.homeip.net 25
220 winam.homeip.net ESMTP Exim 4.50 Wed, 04 Mar 2009 15:49:45 +0000

I know that pop3da is newer than the old "teapop" server. But I have been using it for years and never had any issues with it. So you might consider removing the other package and installing it instead.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

Thanks Lightning, teapop server seems to be working ok. There is something on pop3da which I can't figure out and which prevent it from working. As I read threads on this forum, it (pop3da) works out the box with only commenting on the firewall lines.

On the exim config file, is possible to add
several Domains on domainlist and hostlist lines such as AAA.homeip.net, no-ip.com and BBB.homeip.net or do I have to create virtual domains.

domainlist local_domains = localhost :  router.inet

domainlist relay_to_domains =  router.inet : 192.168.0.0/24 :

hostlist  relay_from_hosts = 127.0.0.1 : 192.168.0.0/24



On the dyndns domains, what file do I run to verify if the update is happening?



Thanks again Lightning
