Automatic Email Server Settings

Hi

 

 

How would I enable automatic server settings for Kolab?

 

Most Phones and Email clients offer that. All you need is the Email Address and the password and it automatically configures all settings like incoming mail server, smtp etc

 

Thanks

Re: Automatic Email Server Settings

What do you actually mean by "enable automatic server"??
You always need the username, password and the pop and smtp server to
setup something.
At some ISP's the username differs from the domainname, so you always
will need to tell him that.
Plus you might want to use a different smtp server than the one from kolab.

Re: Automatic Email Server Settings

Hallo Nazeer,

> How would I enable automatic server settings for Kolab?

I am not sure I do understand this correctly - how could that be
possible? Sometimes the ports differ, sometimes the emailadresses' local
part differs from the username (or the whole emailadress is the
username), sometimes incoming and outgoing servers are different etc. pp.

Re: Automatic Email Server Settings

Hey I allways wondered how they do it but I think it's just a database in the 
email client which gets the information based on the email-adress. For example 
when you enter your email adress:
johndoe <at> msn.com
the client knows that its an msn account and adds all the server information 
automaticly.

With other words no way your kolab server will ever be added :(

Please correct me if I am wrong because I don't really know for sure, but I 
think this is how it's done.

RE: Automatic Email Server Settings

In outlook or most new phones, you just type in the email address and
password and it gets all server info like incoming part server, smtp, port
etc

Like if I had a gmail address, I could simply type in my email address and
password and it would automatically fill in all the other details and my
Mailbox would be setup

Thanks

Re: Automatic Email Server Settings

????
I know Outlook (and hate it) but in Outlook XP, Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 you have to fill out the smtp and the pop server If you want to connect to a server. Thunderbird also needs these setting. Even Kontact needs the Servername on installation.
If you have a mobilephone and you only can connect to one server there is some kind of autocompletition.

Re: Automatic Email Server Settings

I think what he is aiming at is a feature request for the kdepim wizards for 
setting up gmail accounts. Thunderbird does include it, however resulting in 
POP rather than the more convenient imap. Regarding mobiles, quite naturally 
the Google sponsored Android support setting up gmail and google calendar with 
this simplicity (but no other server). Personally I wouldn't mind the kdepim 
wizard supporting gmail, but I haven't felt the need to contribute the patch 
yet ;-)

Cheers,
Del

RE: Automatic Email Server Settings

So far this automatic server settings only worked on domains hosted by
Google as well as Hotmail and MSN.

As for normal email servers, i don’t think it works, I was just wondering if
Kolab has this functionality because it makes life so much easier for people
who don’t know how to properly setup email on their phone or laptop.

Ports will always be the same as well as the incoming and outgoing server
(as long as you have authenticated SMTP like Kolab has). The only thing that
will change is the username and password

EG... I have a E66. I tried adding an email account and all it asked me for
was Email address and Password then it said "Retiring mail Settings".
Unfortunately it didn’t work. I then had to use my Gmail email address and
password and it automatically setup the mail account will the correct ports,
authentication and server names. Outlook 2007 has the same option when you
first add a new account. I just thought there was a way to set this up in
Kolab.

On another note... I had an email address (say myname <at> company.com). The mail
was hosted with gmail. I then changed the MX records to point to my Kolab
server (leaving google as backup MX records). Now mail is delivered and
controlled from the Kolab server with the exact same email addresses. Weird
thing is that If i do the "automatic thing" with this email address, it sets
it up as a gmail account (i used the same password for the kolab server as
the one which was used when it was hosted with Gmail). It obviously is still
looking at the gmail account even though the MX records are now pointing to
the Kolab server... my question is, where does it get info to point to a
certain server and get info from that server?

Thanks

Kolab Security Issue 24 20091002 (imapd)

Kolab Security Issue 24 20091002
================================

Package:              Kolab Server, Cyrus IMAP Server
Vulnerability:        various
Kolab Specific:       no
Dependent Packages:   none

Summary
~~~~~~~

The Cyrus IMAP mail server supports the SIEVE mail filtering language. Cyrus
IMAP versions 2.2 through 2.3.14 contain a buffer overflow vulnerability that
may be triggered by a specially crafted SIEVE script. To install this type of
script, the attacker would need to have direct access to a mail account on the
server.

Affected Versions
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This affects versions of Cyrus IMAP Server up to version 2.3.14
Kolab Server 2.2.2 and previous releases are affected.

Fix
~~~

Upgrade Cyrus IMAP Server to imapd-2.3.13-20081020_kolab3, which
includes a patch to fix the problem.

OpenPKG packages for Kolab Server 2.2.2 are available from
http://files.kolab.org/server/security-updates/20091002/
or from the mirrors listed on http://kolab.org/mirrors.html

A binary RPM for Kolab Server 2.2.2 (ix86 Debian GNU/Linux Lenny)
is available as imapd-2.3.13-20081020_kolab3.ix86-debian5.0-kolab.rpm

A binary RPM for Kolab Server 2.2.2 (ix86 Debian GNU/Linux Etch)
is available as imapd-2.3.13-20081020_kolab3.ix86-debian4.0-kolab.rpm

Above source and binary packages have been verified to work with Kolab
Server 2.2.0, so you can upgrade the imapd package without doing a full
upgrade.

All other server versions: Please upgrade to Kolab Server 2.2.x and install
the updated imapd package.

You can check the integrity of the downloaded files with:

$ gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-key 5816791A
  or import the key from https://www.intevation.de/~thomas/gpg_pub_key.asc
$ gpg --verify SHA1SUMS.sig
$ sha1sum -c SHA1SUMS

The source package can be compiled and installed on your Kolab Server with:

# su - kolab
$ openpkg rpm --rebuild --define 'with_fsl yes' --define 'with_group yes' \
  --define 'with_group_igncase yes' --define 'with_atvdom yes' \
  --define 'with_ldap yes' --define 'with_annotate yes' \
  --define 'with_morelogging yes' --define 'with_kolab yes' \
  --define 'with_kolab_nocaps yes' \
  ...path/to.../imapd-2.3.13-20081020_kolab3.src.rpm
$ openpkg rpm \
  -Uvh /kolab/RPM/PKG/imapd-2.3.13-20081020_kolab3.<ARCH>-<OS>-kolab.rpm

To install a binary package, just skip the rebuild step:

# su - kolab
$ openpkg rpm \
  -Uvh ...path/to.../imapd-2.3.13-20081020_kolab3.<ARCH>-<OS>-kolab.rpm

Alternatively you can copy or symlink all source and binary rpms and
install-kolab.sh of your current installation and the source rpm of this
security advisory into a new directory and follow the instructions below
"Generating your own 00INDEX.rdf for installations or upgrades" in
1st.README to generate a new installer which can be used to compile and
install the new package without having to specify the "--define" options.

I think I have noticed this problem with certain kontact versions,
too. Stopping kontact, removing the dimap cache contents and
syncing again usually helped here.

Of course you could check with a different imap client first if the
folder is really visible, cyradm's "lm" command should help here if
you authenticate as a normal user.
