Re: Incorrect password

I guess I didn't explain properly...

1) /etc/shadow is specified correctly
2) checklogin.pl can read /etc/shadow just fine
3) suidperl is installed on the system
4) I have read the FAQ's and spent several hours trying to figure the 
problem out before attacking the mailing lists ;)

I can run checkconfig.pl manually (ie: as a non-root user) and it 
reads and confirms the username/password, ie: if you manually type:

#./checkconfig.pl
/etc/shadow<cr>
username<cr>
password<cr>
#echo $?
0

If the username/password are incorrect it return '1' instead of '0'
So checkconfig.pl is working fine.

The trouble is that Perl gets the return value '13' no matter what 
username/password is entered. I know this because I have added a 
couple of extra "writelog()" lines in neomail.pl so I can see the 
variables at various stages in the login() subroutine.

Regards,
Chris

modified neomail 1.24

I've made a few mods over the last couple of years to our
local copy of neomail 1.24.  Perhaps some of these might
be of interest to other people.  If so, you can download it here
(look for #Mathog comments and variables related to those
comments).

ftp://saf.bio.caltech.edu/pub/software/linux_or_unix_tools/neomail_citmods.pl
ftp://saf.bio.caltech.edu/pub/software/linux_or_unix_tools/refresh.gif

Some of the mods were:

1.  treat all folders starting with sent the same as sentmail (because
break up sentmail by year, sent2003, etc.)
2.  add a toggle so that only unread messages are shown (to use this
rename the original refresh.gif newrefresh.gif and then drop the
one provided in to replace refresh.gif.)  This results in a red and
a blue refresh icon.  Click the blue one and it toggles back and forth
between showing all messages and just showing unread ones.  The red
refresh works like the original refresh.  I added this because there
are generally a couple of hundred messages in my inbox that I've saved
(yes, that's bad form) and malformed email dates were dropping in on
the 14th page where they were hard to find.
3.  Some changes to the login method, mine uses an apache module on
the server to filter logins by username/password on that server (https,
of course).  This eliminates the use of explicit username/password
coming in on the URL.  It's done this way in httpd.conf:

<Directory "/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/local_auth">
  Options FollowSymLinks
# has to be through https

Re: Re: Incorrect password

Ok, lets try a different approach...

Has anyone managed to get Neomail working on Fedora Core 3 and/or 
with Perl version 5.8.5 ?

Thanks,
Chris

In need of help

Hello.

I really need some advice with a major problem that's occurred with my Neomail system.

1/ No e mails are incoming as of today for ANY of the accounts I have set up on my web site. This is unusual as I usually am covered in Spam most mornings and have lots of serious enquiries.

2/ The only incoming e mails from my web page 'contact page' I have, come in headed as Mail Delivery Subsystem  as UNDELIVERABLE MAIL ???? But the message generated from the enquirer, is pasted within the mail that opens?

3/ On top of that. Today I cannot send or receive mail from ANY email account to any other Neomail e mail address.

4/ I have opened up a new Yahoo temp account to get hold of you and this too wont be received by my web site Neomail system as a Test .

5/ I am up to date with MacAfee Virus Check and have run it twice today.

6/All other programmes are fine and I can access all saved e mails on each of the Neomail accounts without problem incl/ Address, sent etc..

7 /I cannot see anything unusual or changed in the Site admin defaults

8/ The return error message I get when I send myself an e mail to Neomail from another computer is:

<My web site e mail address >

: 216.98.134.73 does not like recipient. Remote host said: 550 5.7.1 <address >... Relaying denied. Please check your mail first. Giving up on 216.98.134.73.

Do I have a hacker here and can it be fixed?

Please H E L P!

David Freeman

Re: In need of help

This does not sound like a NeoMail problem, based on the errors you're 
receiving.  Sounds like something is going on with your MTA. I would 
suggest you contact your hosting provider.

Need help

Neomail has been working on this server for 2.5 years now.
All of a sudden today when any user that logs in tries to send an email 
thru neomail this error is received:

Error Sending Mail
Sorry, there was a problem sending your message.
Please click your browser's Back button,
check your message, and try again.

Nothing that I am aware of has changed.
POP3 and Sendmail using email clients still is working 100%, just neomail 
won't send an email.
No errors in the neomail.log, none in the servers maillog.

Anyone have a clue where to look?

Richard

Re: NeoMail-users digest, Vol 1 #966 - 1 msg

Can anyone help me with this time-out issue. It seems that the 
neomail page expires real quick. I would like to be able to walk 
away from my desk and come back able to finish what I started and 
not have it give me an error message once I send my mail. 
Sometimes I can back page to copy what I wrote into another email, 
other times I have to retype all of it again.

Also, how can I attach/link a dictionary so that it will catch my 
spelling errors?

One other thing, why is it when I copy and past multiple addresses 
to do a mailing (not massive...only 60 address) it doesn't show up  
on the CC: or BCC: lines? That is, sometimes it does and others 
not.

I'm running Safari on OSX. Not sure if that is the problem to some 
of my questions?

Thanks Jason
