SMTP E-Mail : Notification E-Mail auth mechanism
built on Sat Oct 10 09:04:28 CDT 2015
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.
It has gone AWOL in the Bootstrap integration somewhere. I raised Redmine issue https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/5296
THe selector has been re-introduced. Thanks!
The selector is back in :

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).
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>email@example.com</notifyemailaddress> <username>firstname.lastname@example.org</username> <password>MyPasswordHere</password> <authentication_mechanism>PLAIN</authentication_mechanism> <fromaddress>email@example.com</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?
