Cannot send out on SMTP, SME 6.0 final
« on: February 25, 2004, 08:54:02 AM »
Hi,
i have a gateway-server setup in my LAN, after upgrading from SME 5.6 to 6.0 final, all users who use outlook or related mail software get message:

Task 'YAHOO - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC0F) : 'The connection to the server was interrupted.  If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Any idea what is wrong?
i did not change a single think in the setup after upgrade.

Spin.

Would this be the answer to your problem ?
I have posted an extract from the thread as I do not know how (and no one will tell me how) to cross reference to the old posts.

transparent smtp proxy in 6.0b3

Many users have been unpleasantly surprised by the new transparent smtp proxy in 6.0b3, and have looked for a way to turn it off. To that end, please test the following rpms, found in my contrib
area on our mirrors later today.

e-smith-email-4.14.0-06.noarch.rpm
e-smith-mailfront-1.3.0-09.noarch.rpm

Install like so:

rpm -Uvh *.rpm
/etc/e-smith/events/actions/initialize-default-databases
/sbin/e-smith/signal-event remoteaccess-update
/etc/e-smith/events/actions/restart-masq

Now, you should have a "Proxy" property in your "smtpfront-qmail"
record in the configuration database. It is enabled by default. The
following will disable it.

/sbin/e-smith/config setprop smtpfront-qmail Proxy disabled
/sbin/e-smith/signal-event remoteaccess-update

Obviously, it can be reenabled again just as easily.

Please report any problems to smebugs@mitel.com.

Thanks,
Mike

please excuse my ignorance, but what are the advantages or disadvantages of the transparent proxy?

The advantages are that you force all outgoing smtp to go through the server, thus being subject to any limitations you place upon outgoing mail, and (in the commercial release) virus scanning. As many recent viruses have relied on emailing themselves out to infect other machines, this feature can be used to prevent such propagation.

As we cannot assume that everyone's needs are the same, we do our best to keep the server flexible. It always was, mind you, via the custom templates, but this solution is friendlier.

Regards,
Mike
