Great. I want to protect my login information. How can I do that?

Re: Official and self-signed Certificate manual for hmail [S

I'm interested in preventing anyone with a sniffer from getting either my login information or the contents of messages as they are being sent/received. I do know that with email, without resorting to encryption tools like PGP, TrulyMail, etc. one cannot be confident that nobody will be reading it (...

Re: Official and self-signed Certificate manual for hmail [S

Thanks Bill. Just tried Thunderbird with the same settings, could not send. It give an error that reads: Sending of message failed. An error occurred sending mail: Unable to authenticate to SMTP server ...... The server does not support any compatible secure authentication mechanism but you have cho...

Re: Official and self-signed Certificate manual for hmail [S

Thanks for this. I was actually using 587, not 25 (but I was using the original SMTP entry). So, I created a new entry, using port 465, set to SSL with the self-signed cert and now, in OE, I get "The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified" and then giv...

Re: Official and self-signed Certificate manual for hmail [S

Hi Caspar, I'm having a bit of trouble with this. I've generated the key and csr (self-signed certificate) and testing with the following: openssl s_client ..... as stated above, everything looks just fine. However, I am unable to actually connect when SSL is enabled on hMailServer for SMTP. When I ...

OK, I had an idea. On my old server I used the normal squirrelmail but on my new server I used the hms mod. I put the hms mod on my old server (where the old squirrelmail works fine) and the hms mod fails with the same falure as listed above. :( I then put the regular squirrelmail installation on my...

Errors Logging In

Background: I'm moving my mail from one server to another. I got the hms issues all worked out and I can connect to the new server just fine (with Thunderbird). However, when I try this hms_squirrelmail I got some errors. I went through conf.pl (after installing activeperl) but still getting some er...

Exactly the point

Better to have a simple tool that works (sooner) rather than a very sophisticated tool that takes longer to develop and is more complicated to learn.

Just think about how many people still use notepad. ;-)

Which LDAP Servers do you use?

I would like to setup an LDAP server so I can centralize my users' addresses. Since I use hMailServer for email, I would like to know what other hMailServer admins use for an LDAP server (if anyone uses LDAP).

What do you use and how do you like it?

Thanks,
John

That's right. I installed, stoped and started the service (after turning SMTP back on) and all the mail was processed. As you said there would be, I found many entries in the log where the .hma file was not found.

I can now send and receive just fine.

Everything worked out great. Thanks again.

Good news. I got rid of most of the spam. 18,000 .hma files is now only 1,600. I stopped and restarted the service but it still did not process the messages.

I am looking forward to new version to get things up and running again.

I will wait for your changes. My mail server is effectively useless now (cannot send or receive) so I don't mind stopping it.

OK, I'll figure out a way to delete only the spam (keeping the good ones). If I just delete the files will that be enough? Will the DB correct itself?

After I delete the files, what will I need to do to get the inbound and outbound messages to go where they need to go?

I see I can get MySQLFront downloaded, I am sure running the SQL statement will be fine but won't this delete 'good' emails as well as the bad?

I don't understand. Are you saying I chose some incorrect settings during setup? Is there something here that can only be done via re-install. I would like to avoid re-install as I have a lot of mail stored on the server and I don't want to lose these messages. At the same time I would also like to ...

Have you had "relay mail for anyone" turned on before?
I just turned it on 2-3 days ago in response to your response to another posting of mine. It does not seem to have stopped the spam, though. I also turned on tarpitting (trying everything I can to stop the spam).

Any ideas?

I see a bunch (18,000+) .hma files and they have content. However, there are no directories under the data folder (no domain folders or user folders - all messages are just in the data folder). I do store my mail (IMAP) on the server but doubt I have 18,000 messages (I am the only user using IMAP). ...

This server is isolated. There are no other servers sharing the domain. It is hosted at Server Beach but is assigned a unique domain.

I am using hMailServer 3.1.2 with the default (MySQL?) database and have tried to send a message to myself. I am using DynDNS's SMTP server (not the one on the hMailServer) and when I look at the logs on hMailServer (see below) it looks like the email is being accepted but when I use Mozilla's Thund...

Send/Receive prob and lots of spam

Perhaps this should be two posts but I thought they might be related so I put them together. Just checked my logs and it looks like people are sending lots of spam though my hMailServer. Neither the from or to addresses are on my server (and they look silly like nzbqc5@@excite.ca which causes an err...
