    Help...

    Robert J. Sanford, Jr. Newbie

      Okay, I'm probably being an idiot here but...

      Where are the config docs?

      When I go to the Wiki on how to add a user there's only a .zip file with a Win32 .exe file in there that looks to be an IM tool. Joy...

      Do I
      1 - add users in the jboss-service.xml file or do I
      2 - add users in the mail-service.xml file or
      3 - is there an HSQLDB that I add users to or
      4 - do I need MySQL installed to add users

      Do I need to modify mail-service.xml to set up the mail domains?

      Do I need to be using some other sort of domains for managing the mail users?

      Can there be more than one user specified in mail-service.xml or is that file deprecated in lieu of something else?

      I can get into the server via telnet but I have no idea of what commands are valid from the telnet interface.

      Help!

          More info...

          I can telnet to my mail server.

          I have added two domains to


          I am attempting to connect with Outlook using POP3 and SMTP

          Outlook can find the POP and SMTP servers.

          My server.log file does not show any requests from Outlook but it does show the connections from telnet on port 110.

          Do I need to change the servername in:


          I am running JBoss 4.0.1sp1 on Linux w/ Java 1.4.2_08.

          And I'm kinda lost now. I *think* it's working but I can't prove it :)

            Have a look at:

            http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=MailServicesInstallingM2

            It has some information for configuring users and domains. To test I normally try to send a mail to myself.

              First, I got the latest out of CVS ran "ant" to build and then "ant dev-deploy" to deploy. I edited the list of users as follows and then re-started JBoss to make sure that the changes took.

              <mbean code="org.jboss.mail.userrepository.StaticUserRepository" name="jboss.mail:type=MailServices,name=UserRepository,uimanageable=true">
              <attribute name="Users">
              <users>
               <user><id>wobbet</id><password>pwd</password></user>
              </users>
              </attribute>
              </mbean>


              I then telnet in and try to get into email using the telnet instructions from http://www.yuki-onna.co.uk/email/smtp.html. The response from the server is identical whether I'm using telnet from the machine itself or from a remote machine (WinXP Pro SP2 running Putty).

              My session looks like...

              220 localhost.localdomain.com SMTP Server (JBMAIL SMTP Server version 0.1) ready May 3, 2005 12:05:10 PM CDT

              500 localhost.localdomain.com Syntax error, command unrecognized: ￿￿
              HELO localhost.localdomain.com
              250-localhost.localdomain.com Hello wobbet-lap-01.nls.nlsholdings.com.localdomain.com (10.10.1.147 (10.10.1.147))

              MAIL FROM: wobbet
              501 Syntax error in MAIL command


              After I try this a couple of times I decide to go ahead and say

              RCPT TO: wobbet@mydomain.com

              And I get the 503 error saying RCPT w/o MAIL.

              After some (seemingly random) period of time the session just goes away. This corresponds with the "ConnectionHandler finished" log entry being generated.

              I have my log file set to DEBUG for the most information and I get the following in the log file from my telnet session.

              Whenever I attempt to connect w/ Outlook using the 'wobbet' mailbox I get nothing in the log whatsoever even though Outlook reports that it can find both the SMTP and POP servers specified. Note that I'm specifying the server by IP Address because it doesn't currently sport a name.

              The instructions referenced from http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=MailServicesInstallingM2 don't have much in the way of configuring domains or users and I think I'm using them properly. I left the domains alone and added myself as a user. What else do I need to do?

              So I'm pretty sure that I've mis-configured something and/or am not being clueful about how to connect to the mail server. But I don't know what it is that is wrong.

              Many thanks!

                Hi,

                The instructions on that site are incorrect. Try:

                > HELO localhost.localdomain.com

                > MAIL FROM:<wobbet@localhost.localdomain.com>

                > RCPT TO:<wobbet@localhost.localdomain.com>

                > DATA

                > Some random noise
                >
                > .
                >

                The empty lines after the data section are important. Also try sending a mail to yourself via Outlook.

                Mike.

                  Also download putty and use that rather than the MS telnet for testing.

                    Okay, that helped a bit...

                    Some quick notes...

                    1 - I *am* using Putty as my telnet, not the Win32 telnet. The only time I use a CLI telnet is if I'm on the Linux machine hosting the app.

                    2 - I *tried* to use Outlook to connect to the mailserver but Outlook refuses to connect. I'm trying to figure out why. Do I need to reconfigure my domains? What needs to happen?

                    So when I now go into telnet using the instructions given I am theoretically able to send email but when I check the mailbox using the LISt command there is nothing in there. It could be that I'm not sending properly for whatever reason. Here's my JBoss log for info on the sending and the receiving including a SQLException when trying to check mail that indicates that my mail store hasn't been setup.

                    Do I need to do something to change the mail store? I do *not* have mySQL installed on that machine. I *do* have PostgreSQL installed. Is there something that I need to do to get the store configured?

                    Thanks!

                      Okay, this is really odd...

                      I have Ciphire installed on my machine. So far it hasn't caused me any issues and often provides useful information. I think it is doing so right now.

                      When I telnet into port 25 and run through the mail sending process I eventually get a Ciphire dialog up that says that I'm trying to send a mail that has no to, from, subject or body. That's kind of odd because I *did* specify a to, from and body.

                      So I want to try something else and I telnet into my linux box that is hosting JBoss. From there I say
                      telnet 192.168.69.17 25

                      and run through the process of sending mail. I fully expect that since I'm doing the telnet via the Linux box that Ciphire won't activate. I'm wrong. I get the same result.

                      Begin showing my ignorance here...

                      That implies to me that my client machine is the one trying to send the email even though I'm directly connected to the mail server via telnet. Is this expected behavior?

                      This is a machine that I only have SSH access to. Do I need to do something different?

                      And another odd thing. When I first tried to telnet from the machine to itself I specified "localhost" instead of its IP Address. It said it couldn't find localhost. That doesn't seem quite right. Is that information of any use?

                      When I try to ping an outside server I don't even get name resolution. That implies that the DNS is screwed up somehow. Is that going to cause issues?

                        Have you upgraded from M2 to HEAD? If so you will need to remove the JBoss Mail database tables. The default configuration from HEAD will use JBoss's internal HSQL database. If it is a non-production machine the simpliest way is to shutdown JBoss and delete the $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/data directory, then restart. I.e. the DB schema has changed from M2 to HEAD and the tables need to be rebuilt. That is why you are seeing the exceptions in the log file.

                          So I go and delete server/default/data as explained above.

                          My telnet session goes as normal except when I get to the point where I hit the blank line, '.', blank line my Ciphire dialog pops up and says that there was an SMTP failure. I'm thinking that this is sub-optimal at best.

                          But, when I close down the telnet session (still using Putty by the way) I get another Ciphire dialog up saying "There is a message to be sent do you want to send it now, later or delete it?" Hey, this is new! I say "Now". Nothing happens so I'm guessing that it didn't work but I check anyway.

                          I telnet to port 110 to check the POP email and when I use the LIST command there's actually a message there! I read the message and it is the one I just sent!

                          WOW! IT WORKED! WOOOOOT!

                          So I go into Outlook and try to connect with Outlook. Once again Outlook can find both the POP and SMTP servers but it cannot connect. So I do a quick scan and realize that I'm a dufus and typed in the wrong IP address for the server and test again. All tests pass!

                          It looks like I now have a mail server up and running. That last tip for the HSQL tables was the winner.

                          Many, many thanks.

                          Now I'm off to start a new thread with other config questions to prevent clutter here.
