First off ... please don't construe anything I say as an attack on you. I would honestly like some feedback about how we could improve our documentation. If you could let us know what we need to improve, that would be great; I view the failure here of you not figuring this out as a problem with our documentation. I think this information is mostly all there, but not organized well so it's hard to put it all together; I've been in the middle of this for so long it's hard to remember how this appears to someone who comes into it cold.
Ralph gave you the right starting advice, but ... >credentials: file:netrc You have a file called "netrc" in your Mail directory? If you want to use a file called ".netrc" in your HOME directory, maybe you want to use "legacy" in the credentials entry? (The mh-profile man page says the home directory is searched for the credentials file, but when I look at that code I am not sure that is true). I thought reading the man page that it was obvious that when we say "file:netrc" you are supposed to put the name of YOUR credentials file where "netrc" is, but maybe it isn't. So, a few other problems I see: - post(8) doesn't read the profile, so putting an entry under "post" in there won't do anything. You probably want to put that all under "send". - You don't specify the -sasl flag, which is really what kicks off all authentication nowadays (with the exception of the old-style POP). Reading the man page for send(1) and post(8) I thought that it was clear that the authentication only happens under -sasl (it's the only place where -user is mentioned), but again, I would appreciate some feedback as to how we could improve this. What I would do is try running send(1) testing out a few flags on the command line until you get something that works. What I think you should start with is: -snoop -sasl -mts smtp -server smtp.land1.com -tls (Port 587 is the default so you shouldn't need that, and if you are using that port you probably are NOT using -initialtls). If authentication starts properly, you should be prompted for a username and password; once you get that part working you can then put stuff in your profile and start using your .netrc. If that doesn't work then please post the output from -snoop. --Ken -- nmh-workers https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/nmh-workers
