Qpopper Monthly Help File

         M O N T H L Y   Q P O P P E R   L I S T   H E L P

This is a routine monthly reminder of how to unsubscribe or use other
list commands.

First off, when you subscribe to a mailing list, you almost always get
a first message from the list admin telling you about the mailing list,
and explaining how to unsubscribe.  It is always a good idea to keep
these messages, since you never know when you will need to unsubscribe.
This is particularly useful when you change email addresses, because it
is difficult to unsubscribe from a list after you have a different
mailing address.

Every message sent by the list includes headers that you can just click
on to subscribe, unsubscribe, get help, or see the archives (if the
list has archives).

If you have tried this method, and the mailing list software won't let
you unsubscribe, it is probably because your address has changed.  In 
this case, please send a message to 
<mailto:listmaster <at> lists.pensive.org> stating which list (or lists) 
you want to unsubscribe from, and what you think your previous address
was.  There is a human (me) who will then try to take care of your 
request, often within a few days.

The list server in use (called AutoShare), offers several options which
you can set for yourself.  These options affect how the list sends you
messages.

The available options are:

RE: EOF or I/O error

yes it's a bug.   very annoying one at that.    and it's still not fixed in
4.0.5.   there was a patch which i've lost sadly which i didn't bother
installing, i just went back to the already installed wu pop server.   

does anybody else on this list have the patch to fix the issue with outlook?
basically the problem is that the pop server responds too quickly for
outlook (less than 50ms) and outlook goes 'duh, a server shouldn't have been
that fast to respond'...  crappy microsoft....

or every better, get a different mail client.  :)

Qpopper & openSSL

I have configured openSSL with qpopper 4.0 per the instructions (sun 
solaris 9) and I get the message below when I try to run eudora 5.1 with 
it. Any suggestions?

Eudora 5.1 = You have configured this protocol/personality to reject any 
exchange key lengths below 0. , But the negotiated exchange key length is 
-1. Hence this established secure channel is unacceptable. Connection will 
be dropped. Cause (-6996)

Build error Qpopper4.0.5 on FreeBSD 4.8

Hi,
         Can someone please tell me what I'm missing.  I've tried 
installing QPopper4.0.5 on FreeBSD 4.8 using the "ports" collection 
included with FreeBSD and downloading the source directly from 
www.qpopper.org but I am unable to get Qpopper installed correctly.

Here's what I do:

./configure --enable-specialauth --enable-server-mode --disable-old-spool-loc

mail1# make
cd ./popper  && make all
gcc -c -I.. -I.. -I.  -I../mmangle -I../common   -g -O2 -freg-struct-return 
-DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -DFREEBSD -DUNIX pop_pass.c -o pop_pass.o
pop_pass.c: In function `auth_user':
pop_pass.c:1178: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
pop_pass.c:1185: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
*** Error code 1

Stop in /home/shane/Qpopper/qpopper4.0.5/popper.
*** Error code 1

         Does anyone know why this is happening?  I didn't find anything in 
the mailing list archives.

Thanks for your help,
Shane Bywater

SSL problem

Hi all,

I've run into a problem that has been described before, but I can't seem to 
find the solution. This problem is this:

When I try and download my email, the connection is disrupted. Qpopper 
4.0.5 reports this in the logfile :

popper[9323]: (v4.0.5) TLSv1/SSLv3 handshake with client at 
10-4-2-146.kotnet.org (10.4.2.146); new session-id; cipher: RC4-SHA 
(RC4-SHA SSLv3 Kx=RSA Au=RSA Enc=RC4(128) Mac=SHA1), 128 bits
popper[9323]: apop "luc"
popper[9323]: POP login by user luc from (10-4-2-146.kotnet.org) 10.4.2.146
popper[9323]: I/O Error
popper[9323]: Error writing to client
popper[9323]: luc at 10-4-2-146.kotnet.org (10.4.2.146): -ERR SIGHUP or 
SIGPIPE flagged
popper[9323]: luc at 10-4-2-146.kotnet.org (10.4.2.146): -ERR POP hangup 
from arrhenius.chem.kuleuven.ac.be
popper[9323]: Stats: luc 0 0 8 956624 10-4-2-146.kotnet.org 10.4.2.146

I'm running this on a RedHat 9 system with all recent patches , Qpopper 
4.0.5, and Eudora 5.2.1. In the mailclient I get the above error messages 
below the mail as it was downloaded up to that point (usually just the 
headers).
I have other problems with SSL-connections as well on other machines, but 
these do not produce the above error messages, but rather simply abort the 
connection early on during the POP handshake (SSL handshake is finished by 
than, and the messages are decrypted properly as they are readable). I 
assume the lack of the above error message is due to this error occuring

Spam question

Hi Everyone,

Was hoping someone might be able to give me some insight into a spam
blocking application that works with qpopper.  I'm running qpopper for
my pop server on a freebsd box.  I've got about 10 users on this box and
been getting complaints about spam.  Has anyone installed spamassassin?
Do I need procmail?  Is there a more appropriate spam blocking utility?
I'm really new to the list and any advice on/off list would be hugely
appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan

RE: Spam question

Dan,

I use sendmail/qpopper/MIMEDefang/spamassassin.  It works very well for me.
There is a bit of a howto located at
http://www.rudolphtire.com/mimedefang-howto for this configuration.
Spamassassin and MIMEDefang both have very active mailing lists.  In that
configuration, Sendmail calls MIMEDefang and MIMEDefang calls spamassassin.
Qpopper just does its normal thing.  MIMEDefang was a lifesaver when we
decided to just drop the thousands of sobig emails were were receiving.
Spamassassin catches over 99% of the incoming spam we receive.

Regards,
Matt Thomas

Re: Spam question

I think spam blockers work with the MTA that delivers the mail to mailboxes
(e.g. sendmail), not with the POP3 server.  Once the junk is in the user's
mailspool, it's a little late to block it.
