Problems with email configuration


I’m trying to configure Openfire SMTP service in order to send mail fom one of my plugins. The problem I’m having when I try to test the configuration is that my SMTP server returns “501 Syntax: HELO hostname”. I think this is correct as Openfire only sends HELO and EHLO and does not include the hostname. Am I missing some configuration parameter that tells openfire which hostname it should use?

Best regards



Anybody solved this issue? Ran into it yesterday. Please help

Another symptom is that the hostname (In adminGUI, tab: Server Manager, section: Server Information, section: Environment) is empty. Host is ubuntu 12.04 LTS.


/etc/hosts contains localhost ubuntu


Hereby ubuntu is the old hostname and does not match /etc/hostname.


correct /etc/hosts to match /etc/hostname
