Ubuntu :: Cannot Send Or Receive Email Using Thunderbird

May 28, 2010

I'm having trouble to send and receive e-mail using Thunderbird 3. When I tried setting up new account using the automatic configuration method,the result of scanning pop. and smtp. server returned 'none' with this orange circle. I assume it's the same problem that occurred when I first tried to install Evolution. But oddly,I manage to access the web-mail account provided by the ISP using the same information used to set-up Evolution and Thunderbird 3. Precisely I'm from Malaysia and the ISP is Streamyx.com. PC run on Ubuntu 9.10.And I've heard that the ISP is non-friendly of non standard e-mail applications.

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird - Can Receive But Not Send Email

Aug 30, 2010

I have a desktop that has been running Ubuntu for years. Finally I convinced my wife to get rid of windows XP and move to Lucid. I did a clean install of Lucid on her system writing over windows. After the install I installed Thunderbird using Synaptic Version 3.0.6 was installed on her system. On my desktop I am also running Thunderbird 3.0.6 We have several domains and mail servers on those domains.

They all use SMTP First, I installed the ISP email and that works perfectly. She can send and receive using our ISP's mail server. I then set up an email account in Thunderbird using the SMTP email server form one of our domains. She used to be able to send and receive from for one of our domains. She can receive email from that email server, but can not send (I can send and receive from the same domain using Thunderbird) Her SMTP and mine are set up identically:

Server Name: mail.[domain]
Port: 50
Username: [user]@[domain]
Secure Authentication: No
Connection Security: No

She is able to receive email but when she tries to send. the connection in Thunderbird either times out. or gives a password error. The password is correct, because we can use Firefox, and go to the pop and log in.Also, she can receive email direct on her computer and has to log in using her password. So I opened Terminal and tested using:

telnet mail.[domain] 50

I got

Trying [IP address]
Connected to mail.[domain]
Escape character is '^']'.
220 mail.[domain]

This leads me to believe something in Ubuntu is blocking her system from using Thunderbird to send emails through the email server. I've been at this for several days now. I did try totally un-installing Thunderbird using Synaptic. Then manually deleting the .Thunderbird file. Then doing a fresh install of Thunderbird using Synaptic. Still get the same results I am thinking that maybe App Armor is stopping this? Or perhaps some other security issue in Ubuntu like Linux Security Module? Otherwise the installation went flawlessly. We even got Skype working on the first try! Printers installed correctly and perfectly too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get Evolution , Thunderbird Programs To Send - Receive / Fix This?

Apr 30, 2010

Clean install Ubuuntu 10.04 on SONY VAIO VGN-NS105N.
I can't get either Evolution or Thunderbird programs to send or receive.
I have Ubuntu 9.04 installed in another partition and everything works there. I carefully copied the setup from 9.04 to 10.04.
Of course the Internet is connected, and "Network Tools" work as advertised.
I am wondering if I am alone with this problem, or are there others?

Programming :: Plan Of Action For Script Which Is Able To Send / Receive Email

Feb 22, 2010

A bit clumsy subject, but I would like to make a script, which is able to send and receive email messages from CLI. The script should work like this:

1. read user input from stdin(for example a mail address)
2. send mail over SMTP(SSL, port 465) to a mail server
3. mail server sends an automatic response, script should just display this response email sent from mail server over IMAP(port 993)

At the moment I have a fallowing configuration in my Thunderbird:

IMAP mail.domain.com SSL 993
SMTP mail.domain.com SSL 465

Is it possible with 'mail' utility? Do I need to configure some sort of MTA at first(I use SUSE and I have Sendmail installed by default)? What are the steps, to get this script working?

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup An Email Client In Order To Send/receive Emails?

Oct 2, 2010

I want to setup an email client in order to send/receive emails, but since i am experiencing some issues with my ISP, i decided to setup an SMTP server with Postfix on my machine.The problem is that i can receive emails but i can not send.I read almost every thread in here refering to Postfix, but i could not find the problem on my configuration.So here it is..

Server :: Postfix - One Account Cannot Send / Receive Email (Other Works Fine)

Dec 7, 2010

I just set up a new email server on Debian Lenny. It's Postfix for MTA and Dovecot for IMAPS server. I use Dovecot for authentication. I have two UNIX users on the system (except root), one was added before the installation of Postfix and Dovecot. I'm not doing any virtual things, just plain UNIX users and one domain on a dynamic IP. The first user, "webadmin" can send and receive emails just fine through the server from my mail client.

Now I just added a new user, "scarleo", and it turns out I'm unable to send and receive emails with this account. If I log in (SSH) with scarleo I can use bash mail to send emails, works fine. scarleo can also receive emails from webadmin and can connect to Dovecot to read emails. However scarleo cannot send or receive to or from anyone outside the server from my mail client. I have restarted both Postfix and Dovecot after adding the user. Do I have to do something else to make this account work like webadmin's?

A few relevant lines from mail.log: (I've modded my real IP)
Dec 7 17:44:42 homer dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=<scarleo>, method=PLAIN, rip=, lip=, TLS
Dec 7 17:44:42 homer dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=<webadmin>, method=PLAIN, rip=, lip=, TLS

Server :: Postfix Cannot Send Email From Thunderbird/Squirrelmail To Recipient Behind Firewall

Mar 22, 2011

My company email server has been working flawlessly for the last 5+ years. Recently, one of our clients put their email server behind a firewall (an assumption on my part; details below). Ever since, email sent from within the company (192.168.xxx.xxx internal address; all computers and server is behind a NAT firewall [Netgear FVX538]) is either being sent to the client after some delay (if email is sent using Outlook) or is being deferred until the messages expire (Thunderbird, Squirrelmail, etc.). Email sent to the client from anywhere outside the company (using Thunderbird, Outlook or any other email client) is also delivered without any problems (usually after a short delay).

All other emails to the World are being sent without any problems at all (both inside and outside the company; using any email client or webmail). I did contact the client's postmaster, but the client, being a large government agency, will probably not address the problem (if it is on their side) anytime soon. I am not sure if I can do anything from my end to solve the problem. Ever since the problem with the client began, I added two statements to the postfix configuration file (smtp_pix_workaround_delay_time = 20s and smtp_pix_workaround_threshold_time = 0s); this seemed to a bit - it reduced the delay for emails sent via Outlook to a few minutes (as opposed to 30+ minutes); emails sent using Thunderbird/webmail are still being deferred.

Server details: Dual quad-core processor machine, 32 GB RAM, dual 1 gbps network, running Fedora 14 (64-bit; loosely modeled along the lines of Perfect Server (with ISPConfig2) as described on the howtoforge website). Running Postfix (v. 2.7.1), Dovecot (v. 2.0.9).

Postfix details:

alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
body_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/mbl-body-deny
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
command_directory = /usr/sbin


I emailed the client's postmaster suggesting they disable smtp fixup. But still, what bothers me now is that Outlook works (both within and outside the company) while Thunderbird, webmail, etc. (used by ~90% of the users) do not. In addition, all email clients from outside the company can send email (authenticated via the company server) to the client without any problems. Is there anything I can do on my end to make non-Outlook clients work within the company (webmail is hosted on the company server; so, it would have an internal address as well)?

General :: Command Based Email Client To Send Email Through Secure Smtp?

Jul 26, 2010

In my Windows environment, I use email client such as Microsoft Outlook to connect to our email server to send email with the following configuration:

Incoming server (POP3): 995 - (requires with SSL)
Outgoing server (SMTP): 465 - (use encrypted connection SSL)


And the mail server requires user ID login and password.how do I setup a text command based email client in my Linux (Centos 5.1) to send out email through the existing email server above, which is in another machine? The email client has to be text command based because I need to use command line to send notification email from anothar application installed in my Linux (Centos 5.1) Since the email client will only be used to send email notification, I don't require setting up of an email server in my linux.

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird & DavMail To Receive MS Exchange Server Mail

Jan 31, 2010

Seems quite a lot out there are finding it simple enough getting Thunderbird/Davmail to work, yet I've been at it for days now and still no luck. I've finally given up altogether with Evolution last week, as it seems from weeks of reading and trying, there just isn't a solution for it to work with Exchange Server mail. Yes I tried brutus and its web sites are down so to get additions such as Brutus Keyring is impossible. (its all a long story for another day)Evolution is now uninstalled and in the bin.So now Im into the 5th day trying with Davmail and Thunderbird to get emails from my company mail exchange server.I am sure Im going to have better luck with Thunderbird from what Ive read so far, but it still eludes me how to set it up with Devmail and the information Ive found so far is not very clear. I am sure I am just missing the most simplest step somewhere along the line.

Can someone please post a detailed instruction on how to configure both Thunderbird and Devmail to work together and also how to test if Davmails is working?I can easily access my company emails via OWA with URl... from my home internet, so no issue there.From the efforts of trying to get Evol to work where it came up with the error. "Evolution connector is not compatible with Exchange 5.5", I assume our company server is running an MS exchange server version 2003 or older.

Ubuntu :: Receive Mail But Not Send?

May 29, 2010

I was running Ubuntu 9.04, no problems. I did a new installation of 10.04 and could not send or receive mail (Thunderbird). Both would time out. tried two other mail programs to see if Thunderbird was the problem, but they did the same.So I did dual boot installation, with 9.04 and 10.04. The same: mail OK in 9.04 but not in 0.04. So that seemed to eliminate everything as a problem outside of my computer.One night I remembered that ipv6 could be a cause, and toggled it in Thunderbird. It has been an "almost". I can now receive but not send.For example, the bottom bar will say: "Connecting to smtp.edicionescc.com" and after a while time out.I can ping smtp.edicionescc.com with no problem

Ubuntu :: Receive Email From The Command Line?

May 20, 2011

Background: I want to send and receive emails from the command line. I'm an OS X immigrant and I don't know my way around a shell. I learned what sudo and man pages are last week. I'm hoping to learn more by doing more in the Terminal, and I check my emails a lot, so that would be a nice place to start. I've had a root around, but there doesn't seem to be much on the relevant fora or wikis to help me. The core of the problem: When I enter

$ mail
the shell returns
No mail for USER

I know that there's mail waiting for me. When I log into Gmail in my web browser, I can see it. So, I assume that the problem is that heirloom-mailx (the mail app I've installed) isn't connecting to my Gmail account for some reason. I originally also noticed that I couldn't send emails by typing

$ mail name@address.tld but I found this post, and after following the steps it outlines, I have successfully composed and sent mail from the command line. I assume that I have just missed some fundamental final step in linking my Gmail account with mailx.

Do you know what I need to do to fix this? I'm really enjoying getting to grips with Linux, and I don't want to be stopped now by what seems to be such a piffling problem.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Send / Receive Tab Greyed Out

Feb 10, 2011

Running Evolution on a laptop with 8.04 installed. (Running 8.04 for good reasons - please don't query). I've been running perfectly for some time, but today when I booted up and opened Evolution to check my mail, the first sign of something odd was that it didn't ask me to unlock the keyring. Then I noticed that the send/receive was greyed out.

I rebooted several times with no change. I've clicked on Permissions in the File menu, but that doesn't then show any window, which is what I would expect, thinking that something has changed. Other than accepting all the usual update manager's recommended installs, nothing has changed on this laptop for several weeks.

CentOS 5 :: Evolution Receive But Won't Send?

Nov 25, 2009

I have it config'd to send and receive on multiple accounts and they all receive email, but SMTP times out and even sends no matter what account I try to send with. I thought maybe security and dropped the firewall and still won't send. No matter which account I try to send to it says its timing out trying access I have no problems on my Mac so no network problems. For grins I install Thunderbird and setup one account and same thing received but no send. What could it be blocking outgoing email??? I have CentOS 5 with all available updates.
