• smtp-auth required?

    From Nelgin@VERT/EOTLBBS to All on Tue Mar 21 02:37:45 2023

    reply to end of DATA command

    How can I avoid this particular host from having to do smtp-auth. It's using the endofthelinebbs.com domain but on a different system. I have the ip in the ipfilter_exempt.cfg of course but I'm sure there's something else?

    That error message is not from the Synchronet mail server.

    ipfilter_exempt.cfg is not used to enable relay agents, but since the quoted error message isn't from Synchronet in the first place, I suspect you're wanting to set send/relay exemptions on some other mail server?

    That's odd.

    554 Mail deliveries from endofthelinebbs.com must use SMTP-AUTH

    If I telnet to my BBS and try to deliver directly, I get the message. I don't know where else it could be coming from?

    That error message is not from the Synchronet mail server.

    It's from mailauth.js

    So disable or reconfigure that in your ctrl/mailproc.ini

    How would I change procmail.ini to allow pbx@endofthelinebbs.com send mail without requiring smtp-auth but everything else should?

    Or you could do it by hostname, e.g.
    [MailAuth]
    Command=mailauth.js
    AccessRequirements=(user equal 0 or guest) and host not *.blackberry.com and host not cvs.synchro.net

    [MailAuth]
    Command=mailauth.js
    AccessRequirements=(user equal 0 or guest) and host not *.blackberry.com and host not cvs.synchro.net

    Thanks, that's useful. Some more examples would be nice on the wiki. mailauth.js just has a "fixme" page.

    Yup. There are already a lot of example of AccessRequirements at http://wiki.synchro.net/access:requirements, but not a lot that demonstrate the use of the "host" keyword.
