Smart Host Support

If you are setting up a Linux (or similar) workstation and want to use mail.soaustin.net as your smart host, authorization by SSL certificate (as an alternative to username/password) is also available.

The settings for ssmtp mailer (with Debian extensions) are:

  mailhub=mail.soaustin.net:587
  UseSTARTTLS=yes
  UseTLSCert=yes
  # put key and cert in this file
  TLSCert=/etc/ssmtp/localhost.pem

The settings for postfix to do this are:

  relayhost = mail.soaustin.net:587
  smtp_use_tls = yes
  smtp_tls_security_level = encrypt
  smtp_tls_cert_file = $smtpd_tls_cert_file
  smtp_tls_key_file = $smtpd_tls_key_file

Send Chip the SHA1 fingerprint of your client's SSL certificate.

  $ openssl x509 -in /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem -fingerprint -sha1 -noout
  SHA1 Fingerprint=20:05:06:99:BE:C7:23:67:85:65:C2:91:CE:65:CE:8A:72:53:19:4E

Sieve Filtering

The mail server supports sieve filtering and the ManageSieve protocol.

Use these settings for your ManageSieve client:

  • Server name: mail.soaustin.net
  • Port: 4190
  • Authentication: Use login from IMAP account
  • Secure connection: true

ManageSieve support has been verified with the Mozilla Thunderbird sieve plugin (version 0.2.3h) by Thomas Schmid. The version in the Thunderbird extensions repo does not work correctly (won't connect). Download the 0.2.3h version from here: https://github.com/thsmi/sieve/blob/master/nightly/README.md
