Hello HTF group...The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10) w/ISPConfig

I am following the HTF Tutorial beyond the part detailing installation of Ubuntu 7.10: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_server_ubuntu7.10
Presently I am having trouble when Sending OR Receiving Email from this server.
I receive the following error from ThunderBird which I configured to use TLS and have setup the SMTP to authenticate using a valid Email User usr & pwd for the mentioned mail server.

When Checking Email (ThunderBird Client)
1)

Code:

Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server mail.my-domain.net responded teporary problem, please try again later.

When Attempting to Send Email (ThunderBird Client)
2)

Code:

ThunderBird continuously prompts for password

When I cancel on password prompt I rececive the following error when trying to send Email.
2 cont.)

Code:

Sending of message failed.   The message could not be sent because the connecting SMTP server mail.my-domain.net failed.  The server may be unavailable or refusing SMTP connections.   Please verify that your SMTP server setting is correct and try again, or else contact your network adminsitrator.

To check SMTP connectivity I ran: 'telnet localhost 25'
I receive the following:

'Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 my-domain.net ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)'

Then when I run the following: 'ehlo'

The server returns: '501 Syntax: EHLO hostname'

I have sent Emails from other servers and don't receive any bounce-backs or failure notices.
I have been going back through settings but can't locate an answer yet, where might my errors be?
I have tried recreating the SSL cert following the instructions on this same tutorial 4 times now while still receiving the same error.

Thank you
Regards

Any errors in /var/log/mail.log?

You must run

Code:

ehlo localhost

in telnet, not just

Code:

ehlo

Thank you very much Falko

I ran cat /var/log/mail.log and yes it did seem to want to continue printing errors before I finally ran 'ctrl-c', but here is a sampling of the errs from mail.log file:

INFO UPDATE A/1: My error in the post last night, yes I did run 'ehlo localhost' and all was good after running that command.

Code:

Dec 24 07:34:12 my-domain postfix/qmgr[30658]: B8614359631B: from=<[EMAIL="[email protected]"][email protected][/EMAIL]>, size=2240, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

Dec 24 07:30:08 my-domain postfix/error[13300]: 2956535958E2: to=<[EMAIL="[email protected]"][email protected][/EMAIL]>, relay=none, delay=309052, delays=308996/57/0/0.01, dsn=4.4.3, status=deferred (delivery temporarily suspended: Host or domain name not found. Name service error for name=construtel.com.br type=MX: Host not found, try again)

Anyhow, I just this morning decided that beings I screwed up initially by following the 'Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (+ SMTP-AUTH, Quota, SpamAssassin, ClamAV)'
That I should start all over but using the tutorial 'The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10)'

So when I get to section '11 Quota' I am at a wall when running the following comand(s).

Code:

touch /quota.user

I receive this err: touch: cannot touch `/quota.user': Permission denied

INFO UPDATE A/2: Falko I wanted to let you know that I am running as 'root su' when I receive the errors above while trying to 'touch' quota.
I am betting this has everything to with what ever was changed when folowing the virtual tutorial?
What will I need to do to get past this error?

INFO UPDATE A/3: I have been looking over the first tutorial I attempted using which if I would of red tells me it was intended for deb sarge, should I go back through that tutorial and remove files such as: mysql-virtual_mailbox_limit_maps.cf, virtusertable~, mysql-virtual_domains.cf, mysql-virtual_transports.cf, virtusertable.db, mysql-virtual_email2email.cf, mysql-virtual_forwardings.cf, mysql-virtual_mailboxes.cf

Located in: /etc/postfix

Not to mention other files created that don't pertain to the UBUNTU 7.10 Perect Server tutorial?

Thank you Falko
Regards

Best wishes for everyone
You must be root when you run this command:

Code:

sudo su
touch /quota.user

(or run

Code:

sudo touch /quota.user

)
Thank you Falko

Yes I am logged in as 'root' when receiving the errThe Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10) w/ISPConfig
.

Code:

[email protected]:/home/bender# sudo touch /quota.user
touch: cannot touch `/quota.user': Permission denied

Best Regards
Did you disable AppArmor?
What's the output of

Code:

ls -la /

?
Thank you Falko

Hmm, I did some extra searching the net last night and found a handy group of commands that pertains to 'quota'.

After running 'quotaoff /' I was able to proceed onto completion of the Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10 w/ISPConfig) tutorial.

At this point this is the condition of functionality:

1) When I try to send Email from this server I am perpetually prompted for the SMTP server password which is for the web_admin email account.
If I cancel the send process TBird returns the err;

Code:

Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP server mail.my-domain.net failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMPT server setting is correct and try again, or else contact your Network Administrator.

In TBird I have configured the SMTP to use this server mail.my-domain.net using the web_admin usr/pwd for TLS and have enabled 'Use Secure Connection' with the TLS RADIO enabled.
After settings are made I restart TBird but still get same result.

2) Likewise when I attempt to receive Email I am prepetually prompted for the password and what's wierd is I am being prompted by TBird to accept a cert from another one of my servers even though I have double checked my POP settings for the .NET account I am working with presently??

I have deleted ALL SSL certs in TBird and restarted it to be faced with the same event.

3) I can send Email to this Email server from an outside server and recieve no undelivered messages at the outside server yet I am unable to retreive the Email on the .NET server due to the password looping issue defined above.

From the CLI I am able to connect to the SMTP server running:
'telnet localhost 25'
And upon connection I run 'ehlo localhost' and all is well.
After 'quit' I try 'telnet localhost pop3' and receive:

Code:

Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Hello there.

Then 'quit' all seems good there.

Thanking you in advance for your help and time Falko The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10) w/ISPConfig

Best Regards
What's in /etc/hosts?

Does sending and receiving work when you switch off secure connections?
Hello Falko thank you...

MySQL db find : Falko, I logged into my .COM server which is also configured running ISPConfig PostFix, Courier, etc, using TLS authentication.
What I found was that the .COM server when logged into MyPHPAdmin DOES NOT have a Mail db, rather it only has the ISPConfig db and it's Email system works fine.

When logged into my .NET server using MyPHPAdmin I find that in addition to the ISPConfig db the .NET server also has a Mail db
too which I created when I wrongly chose to follow the Debian based Tutorial at first which did not support ISPConfig!

I am not sure but I feel rather confident that this is the chief cause of the issue I have been dealing with??
Would you suggest I delete the Mail db from my .NET server beings this server also runs ISPConfig which should make TLS based POP3 & SMTP authentication function properly then- At least it seams that way to me (my desperation to get my client Email service restored).

The output of '/etc/hosts'

Code:

127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain localhost
65.197.209.3    giganetwireless.net     Bender
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

I then logged into another server and saw an immediate difference!
on the first line at the end it also defined the FQD for that server so I changed this new server to be as follows now:

Code:

127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain localhost giganetwireless.net
65.197.209.3    giganetwireless.net     Bender
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

After this I ran '/etc/init.d/networking restart'

TO disable secure I set 'smtpd_use_tls = no'
AND
'smtpd_tls_auth_only = no'
AND
'smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = no'

Then I ran '/etc/init.d/postfix restart'

After making the above changes to the server I reconfigured TBird not to use TLS in both POP & SMTP.
I am still unable to send or receive from this server however...

Thank you Falko

Regards
Please change this line:

Code:

::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback

so that it looks as follows:

Code:

::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback localhost.localdomain

Thank you Falko

I am going to delete the second db, I mentioned last night.

I edited my .NET server hosts file to look as:
'127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost giganetwireless.net
65.197.209.3 giganetwireless.net Bender
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback localhost.localdomain
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts'

After doing this I ran '/etc/inist.d/postfix restart' but I still get the same results, login failure for send/receive Email.

Can I ask why I would need the IPV6 line on this server when it does not exist on my .COM server which functions fine?

My .COM server hosts file appears as follows:
'127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost giganetwireless.com
65.197.209.2 giganetwireless.com Leela
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts'

Wouldn't having the additional MySQL db as I mentioned cause this issue?
My .COM server only has one MySQL db that caters to ISPConfig.
While my .NET server has a Mail db and an ISPConfig db

THanking you in advance for your help and time Falko...

You set up the "Virtual Postfix" tutorial on the .net server, right? Please undo that stuff.
Hello Falko, thank you...

I went back and removed all files, dirs and changes from the "Virtual Postfix" Tutorial.

After this I picked up on the "The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10)" at page 3 and continued through this Tutorial to the end.

After completing this Tutorial and reconfiguring TBird to use TLS for the test account on this .NET server TBird donwloaded 25 pieces of EMail which I sent from one of my .COM accounts over last weekend.
POP3 Authorization Update: I am able to successfully authenticate POP3 in TBird on the .NET server

However I have the following issues when tying to Send & Receive of Email at the .NET account.

1) From a .COM Email account I just sent a test Email to the .NET server. The .COM account reveived a Delayed Mail (still being retried) Email notice?

2) When I attempt to send Email from the .NET server eventually TBird returns the following error.

Code:

Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP server mail.giganetwireless.net failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMTP setting is correct and try again, or else contact your network administrator.

When I run the command(s):

Code:

telnet localhost 25

OR

Code:

telnet giganetwireless.net 25

All looks good with the following:
'250-giganetwireless.net
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY
250-ETRN
250-STARTTLS
250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
250-AUTH=PLAIN LOGIN
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
250-8BITMIME
250 DSN'

When I run:
'telnet localhost pop3'
OR
'telnet giganetwireless.net pop3'

The server returns:
'Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Hello there.'

After I type: 'quit'
'+OK Better luck next time.'

In TBird I have deleted ALL SSL certs and then restart the Email Client.

Also I have validated the SMTP settings for the .NET account to use: TLS, Username & Password.
In the username field I populated it with the username of the .NET test account.

Here is a sampling of the output of: 'cat /var/log/mail.log'

Once again Falko I thank you in advance for your help The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10) w/ISPConfig

Regards
Does mail.giganetwireless.net exist and point to the correct server?

What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf on the .net server?
Thank you Falko...

Yes the DNS records for 'mail.giganetwireless.net' exist in DNSExit and are pointing to 65.197.209.3, a MX record also exists in ISPconfig too.
Using a remote ping application I am able to ping 'mail.giganetwireless.net' successfully.

The contents of /etc/postfix/main.cf:

I am not sure what happened after re-doing this Tutorial but all of the hosted web-sites are inaccessible now.
So far I have tried to restart 'bind9' & 'ispconfig_server' trying to resolve this but still no luck...

ISPConfig is accessible by browser though at the .NET server...

Thank You Falko

What's the output of

Code:

ls -la /etc/postfix

, and what's in /etc/postfix/transport?
Thank you Falko...

Services Monitoring Info Falko I thought I would share this additional info with you;
I use the MikroTik Dude to monitor my network, when I look at the monitoring stats for the .NET server the services 'ping, dns & POP3' are all UP while 'http & smtp' are in an UNKNOWN state.

The output of 'ls -la /etc/postfix':

The file doesn't exist. Please remove the line

Code:

transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport

from /etc/postfix/main.cf and restart Postfix.
Thank you once again Falko!

I am bookmarking all of my posts for later use as reference.

Happy New Year Falko
