Troll SMTP problem...

Hello,

I'm using Troll 1.8e, and evertything works for receiving news or emails, but I can't send an email.
I don't know the problem I have for the SMTP configuration.

With MagiC and Sting : it says "waiting" and then comes back after a few minutes without sending. The message remains queuing.
With Mint and Mintnet, it goes to "connecting" and hangs.

Can you share your settings?

My provider is orange (France), so I use:
smtp.orange.fr
port 25
My address and password.
I don't know what kind of authentification to use.... Login? Plain? etc...

Guillaume.

I forgot :
I can send messages to the Usenet, but no emails.

You can use either login or plain, according to what their SMTP server supports.

Code: Select all

telnet smtp.orange.fr 25
Trying 193.252.22.86...
Connected to smtp.orange.fr.
Escape character is '^]'.

Hi,

I tried telnet, it can't connect to port 25 on this smtp.
If I change it with port 465, it works.

But... port 465 requires SSL, doesn't it? And I don't want to use this heavy feature with the TT.

Strange...

Looks like the port must be set to 587 and not 25 with my box.

Well, now it seems to work again !

@Moulinaie: if you need SSL connection for the Troll, then install PolarSSL.ldg
