Problems with email configuration

Hi,

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

Jorge

Hi,

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.

Cause:

/etc/hosts contains

127.0.0.1 localhost

127.0.1.1 ubuntu

[…]

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

Solution:

correct /etc/hosts to match /etc/hostname
