FAQ: Installation of eMail Notification
How-To Posted by Bjoern on Sunday April 08, 12:55AM, 2001
from the digging-deep-not-getting-far dept. dept.
Just having tasted the smell of squishdot, I want more! (that is: eMail Notification!)

As I am a beginner, i would apreciate a step-by-step description of eMail-Notification Setup.

Althoug I found something in the postings, itīs not clear enough for me what steps to take (its that funny permissions / proxy roles game)

Would be glad if you could help me out...

Best regards from rainy old germany

    Step 1.

    Go to your Squishdot site main folder(management screen). Add a "Mail Host" with id myhost, title "My mailing server host". If you are using a linux/unix box, you can give "localhost" against the "SMTP Host" label. If using Windows, look around/ask your admin and find out the name/ip address of your SMTP server. SMTP Port is usually 25.

    Step 2.

    Go to your squishdot management folder and click on the "Options" tab.

    Step 3.

    There will a list menu labeled as "Mail Host" written in Italics. Choose "myhost" as your mailhost.

    Step 4.

    Tick the options "Mail new articles to the admin address" and "Mail new replies to the admin address" as desired.

    Voila! You are done. If you still get problems, blame/flame me ;)

    Regards
    Manoj

      Hi Manoj,

      thanx a lot for your straightforward instructions.

      Nevertheless result is not better than before - seems I am caught in another trap.

      maillog says:
      NOQUEUE: IDENT: nobody@mycomputer.mydomain.net [127.0.0.1] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to MTA

      (mycomputer.mydomain replaced)

      Iīll talk this over with someone who knows sendmail better than me - and inform you about the results.

      best regards bjoern

        I have the same problem... but not in relation to (whatever) notification thing you are trying to install..
        I get:

        Aug 13 05:52:57 moya sendmail[9212]: NOQUEUE: IDENT:root@localhost [127.0.0.1] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to MTA

        I am trying to find out more info with web searching, and that is how I found your post...

        however, I am starting to think this log entry is caused by an SMTP check performed by MON or other service checking tools.... can anyone else elaborate? I would just like it to stop logging this, it's annoying. ;)

        Mandrake 8.0 install, sendmail+sasl. Happens on all my linux/sendmail units.

          Check the post Darrick referenced.

          If someone can show me a way to reproduce this, I'll be happy to take a look.

          What version of Squishdot/Zope are you using and have you customised mail_html at all?

          cheers,

          Chris

            I have same problem,
            my log is getting appeneded every 2 min. with the same entry.

            Oct 12 01:28:25 girishn11 sendmail[4662]: NOQUEUE: cq8 [10.67.101.8] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connec
            tion to MTA

            I have sendmail 8.11.6 installed on my server.
            can figure out the meaning of this log or why this is happening?
            Is it normal or or something is going wrong?

            Thanx

              hi ,

              I also had the same problem with my mail server.
              I have found the DNS blacklist feature as the source of the problem. Its like this feature of sendmail does not lets some hosts to establish a connection, making them disconnect just after connecting.

              Remove the DNS blacklist or any other anti-spam based on internet Database from your sendmail config and recompile it.

              My problem seems to be solved with that.

              good luck
              regards
              Rajesh

                In particular, use of spamcop's blacklist. I had the same problem until I switched over to using spamhaus, as soon as I did that, problem solved.

            you should restart sendmail to resolve it.
            if the problem persist try reboot the system.

            hope this helps.

      Your response is very clear.

      The only point is that i can not find any MailHost in the "select type to add..." in any part of the tree...

      Can you help me ?

      Thank you
      Regards
