problems with connection of sendmail connection to microsoft exchange at Provider

Post by roland_br » 2023/11/02 12:12:45

I use sendmail at a client for many years without problems. Now the provider has changed his mailserver to Microsoft Exchange
my sendmail:

Code: Select all

Version 8.13.8
 Compiled with: DNSMAP HESIOD HES_GETMAILHOST LDAPMAP LOG MAP_REGEX
                MATCHGECOS MILTER MIME7TO8 MIME8TO7 NAMED_BIND NETINET NETINET6
                NETUNIX NEWDB NIS PIPELINING SASLv2 SCANF SOCKETMAP STARTTLS
                TCPWRAPPERS USERDB USE_LDAP_INIT
I uses smtp 587 with the host smtp.office365.com.
I changed the configuration

Code: Select all

define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp.office365.com')dnl
define(`RELAY_MAILER_ARGS', `TCP $h 587')dnl
define(`ESMTP_MAILER_ARGS', `TCP $h 587')dnl
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=submission, Name=MSA, M=Ea')dnl
TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`EXTERNAL DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
FEATURE(`authinfo',`hash -o /etc/mail/authinfo/smtp-oleane.db')dn

But as I send an email: mail -s "subject" myemailaddress </tmp/work
I get a logfile that looks like this

Code: Select all

As you can see I get in there a message : verifymsg=unable to get local issuer certificate
WHAT does this mean?

Start by fixing those.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.
Info for USB installs on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey
CentOS 5 and 6 are deadest, do not use them.
