Hi! I'm at the end of my wit regarding howto configure Gnus to send mail, similar to other mail clients I succesfully use, using port 465 and tsl/ssl.
For starters, gnus seems to refuse to use port 465 when instructed in for instance (setq smtpmail-smtp-service 465). I find that a bit odd, but I can live with it, *if* I could get the authentication to work. But I can't do that either. It's me, I'm sure, I've turned a famous Internet search engine upside down, and I think I'm stuck between a not 100 % correctly configured exim on the server, a borked certificate and a very precise Gnus. quoting my .gnus (note port 465 replaced now by 25 in 2 places) (setq smtpmail-debug-info t) ; only to debug problems (setq smtpmail-auth-credentials "~/.smtp-authinfo2" smtpmail-starttls-credentials '(("mail.hillenius.net" 25 nil nil)) smtpmail-default-smtp-server "mail.hillenius.net" smtpmail-smtp-server "mail.hillenius.net" smtpmail-smtp-service 25 smtpmail-local-domain nil send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it) and in smtp-authinfo I have machine mail.hillenius.net login (name) password (name) port 465 Yes, again port 465; but it does not work here either.. Using these settings I get, when trying to send email: STARTTLS negotiation failed: TTLS 250 HELP STARTTLS 220 TLS go ahead *** Starting TLS handshake - Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman parameters - Using prime: 2056 bits - Secret key: 2043 bits - Peer's public key: 2048 bits - Certificate type: X.509 - Got a certificate list of 1 certificates. - Certificate info: # The hostname in the certificate does NOT match 'mail.hillenius.net'. smtpmail-send-command: Process SMTP not running on the server I get: TLS recv error on connection from bufo-sapiens.local [172.16.2.12]: A TLS packet with unexpected length was received The certificate on the server is by Cacert, made out to hillenius.net I have a (setq tls-hostmismatch nil) at the top of .gnus. -- Remember that there is an outside world to see and enjoy. -- Hans Liepmann _______________________________________________ info-gnus-english mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/info-gnus-english
