SMTP E-Mail : Notification E-Mail auth mechanism



  • 2.3-ALPHA (amd64)

    FreeBSD 10.2-STABLE

    On the "System/Advanced/Notifications" page, the "Notification E-Mail auth mechanism" drop-down list to select PLAIN/LOGIN is missing.
    BTW, the notification is not sending emails with same settings that are usually working on 2.2.4 and earlier.

    Regards,






  • It has gone AWOL in the Bootstrap integration somewhere. I raised Redmine issue https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/5296


  • Developer Netgate

    THe selector has been re-introduced. Thanks!



  • The selector is back in :
    2.3-ALPHA (amd64)
    built on Mon Oct 12 16:19:14 CDT 2015
    FreeBSD 10.2-STABLE

    And thanks for the great efforts !

    But he emails still not working using same settings that are working on 2.2.4 (with same error as shown on the attached picture of the first message).

    Regards,



  • I can't get any email notification to work on 2.3-ALPHA.
    I have a config.xml section that looks like:

    		 <smtp><ipaddress>mail.company.co.uk</ipaddress>
    			<port>465</port>
    			<notifyemailaddress>phil.davis@company.co.uk</notifyemailaddress>
    			<username>phil.davis@company.co.uk</username>
    			<password>MyPasswordHere</password>
    			<authentication_mechanism>PLAIN</authentication_mechanism>
    			<fromaddress>phil.davis@company.co.uk</fromaddress></smtp> 
    
    

    I have changed the FQDNs and password in the post above, of course. But the format is exactly as above.

    That works on a 2.2.5-DEVELOPMENT system (my home router). It does not work on my 2.3-ALPHA test system, using the same settings - the same errror in the system log as posted above. I switched slices on the 2.3-ALPHA test system back to 2.2.5-DEVELOPMENT and "Test SMTP" works fine - that is using the exact same config.xml from the 2.3-ALPHA system.

    I have compared /etc/inc/notices.inc on 2.2.5 and 2.3 and cannot see any functional difference.

    I don't think this is particularly about PLAIN and LOGIN authentication mechanism.

    Maybe something is not happy in the underlying SMTP library that is used?

    Does anyone else have working SMTP E-mail notification settings in 2.3-ALPHA?
