• Email issue?

    From Alterego@VERT/ALTERANT to Digital Man on Thursday, August 08, 2019 11:01:07
    Hey DM,

    I've noticed something (on a CVS build from yesterday - but I've seen this before randomly.)

    If I'm reading email, and a new email comes in - SBBSecho sends me a telegram (awesome) - but when I get to that new email, it is blank.

    IE: I see the headers "to", "from",etc - and then a blank below it with the command prompt.

    I have to "Q"uit and then "R"ead to see the contents.

    It seems to be working for me. Is the problem only when FTN NetMail?

    It seems to be working for me. Is the problem only when FTN NetMail?

    So I'm reproducing it regularly - when I have FTN netmail and email.

    So I logged off, send myself 2 emails.
    Then went to another BBS and sent myself a netmail
    Then logged into my bbs and started reading the 1st email
    (while reading the first email, I sent another email).
    Continued reading, and when I got to the last one, its just rendered blank.

    I'll try with just a netmail and an incoming email.

    I'll try with just a netmail and an incoming email.

    So I dont think it is specifically netmail related.

    This time, I went back into reading (existing mail) - I went to the second last message (36 of 37).

    I sent myself a message, so when I pressed ENTER, I got the telegram (new mail), and was now on 37 of 38.

    Pressed enter again and 38 rendered blank. Pressing "R" to re-read it still rendered blank.

    Quiting out, and going back to read messages (it is no longer unread), I could see the detail for message 38.

    I still haven't been able to repro it. I just added an error check/message when reading mail. If there's any failure reading the message body text, it should print and log an error (e.g. in data/error.log). Can you update and see if you get that error in this situation (something to the effect of "error showing mail message")?

    Or you could logon to Vertrauen and send yourself email there and see if you can reproduce it on Vertrauen and perhaps give me a captured instance of the problem happening.

    Thanks,

    I had no luck on Vert - it kept bouncing my email :(

    I sent QWK mail, but then discovered you have a different mail reader - so when the 3rd mail came in, the reader was only showing the 2 previous ones, until I quit the reader and went back in to read messages.

    So I updated my system, and I cant reproduce it at the moment, but as soon as I notice it I'll give you some details from that log.

    I hit send too quickly - here is how I reproduced it.

    While reading mail "N"->"A", I sent myself 2 emails. I then sent a netmail.

    Finished reading mail, I went to read the emails, while reading the first, I sent myself a 3rd email. I deleted the 1st email, read and deleted the second, read the netmail, and then pressed enter to read the 3rd email (4th new message) it was blank.

    Nothing logged :(

    deon.george@vert.synchro.net (#deon)

    The bounce was cryptic - I sent a few mails.

    At first my config was to forward mail (to my bbs), so after the first 2 bounced, I turned that off, sent another, still bounced. Logged off and on, and sent 2 more, they both bounced.

    One of the bounced messages said this:
    cvs.synchro.net reporting delivery failure of message
    from Deon George to deon.george@bbs.leenooks.net

    Reason:
    l.dlcm.co replied with:
    "550 5.7.1 <deon.george@vert.synchro.net>... Relaying denied. Proper authentication required."

    There is no verbosity control with error logging. You always get all the details logged with "errors".

    So... there's a problem with your mail-sending configuration there somewhere.

    When I log into vert and go "E"(read email), "R" (read mail) - I get a light bar looking UI. The navigation is different, but it starts by clearing the screen and listing the readable messages. I navigate by using the up/down arrows and selecting the message to read.

    On my system, when I go E->R, I get a list dump of available messages - each prefixed with a number that I can read specifically at the prompt, which starts with "Start with number[1]:"

    I dont know how/why I get the different UI on vert - but my mail reading UI is how Synchronet has always looked to me.

    It appears you have one multiple accounts on Vertrauen with the real name of "Deon George", some are set to forward, some are not.

    I just tried sending from my own mail client:

    ... and as you can see it's going to try to relay the email to deon.george@bbs.leenooks.net. Let me know if you get it.

    Okay, so then we should both be using the same reader. You said Vertrauen was using a "different reader", so I'm trying to figure out what you're talking about.

    When I log into vert and go "E"(read email), "R" (read mail) - I get a light bar looking UI. The navigation is different, but it starts by clearing the screen and listing the readable messages. I navigate by using the up/down arrows and selecting the message to read.

    On my system, when I go E->R, I get a list dump of available messages - each prefixed with a number that I can read specifically at the prompt, which starts with "Start with number[1]:"

    I dont know how/why I get the different UI on vert - but my mail reading UI is how Synchronet has always looked to me.

    I do have an experimetnal message lister on my system, but it's not invoked when hitting 'R' from the Email menu. Perhaps you hit 'U' or 'T' instead? That's pretty weird.

    Confirmed. I followed those instructions again (deleted the cryptlib.key) -

    Was the file successfully deleted?

    Was the file successfully recreated by SBBS?

    Does that make it a bug? ;)

    So you should only have 1 deon george (DEON), and ALTERANT can be "Alter Ego" if that makes things easier.

    You had your accounts set to forward your mail to a non-working MTA. That's not my system doing that.

    So you should only have 1 deon george (DEON), and ALTERANT can be "Alter Ego" if that makes things easier.

    It's fine. The old accounts will auto-delete due to inactivity eventually. But sending mail to yourself here, use the account alias, not he real name. e.g. alterego@vert.synchro.net. The confusion I think came from sending to your *real* name on Vertrauen, for which you have multiple accounts and you don't know which one it'll hit (the one with the lowest user number).

    So I'm not sure if this is my mail server issue or yours :)

    So mail to me from your system, that is forwarded, appears to be arrive at my system addressed to "deon.george@vert...", hence the relay denied.

    So this example, I sent mail from me (deon@leenooks...), via GMAIL to deon.george@vert....

    Your system would have forwarded to me at deon.george@bbs...., however, when it arrived at my mail server (l.dlcm...), it was still addressed to deon.george@vert.... - and my server though you were trying to relay.

    I would have expected that you address it to deon.george@bbs.leenooks.... when it is arriving at my server?

    I'm sure this worked recently...?

    So I didnt get your other test message - because of your "relay attempts", my fail2ban blocked you.

    Actually, I'm not so sure anything's broken:

    SEND Message #7476 (4 of 5) from Rob Swindell #1 <rob@synchro.net> to deon.george@vert.synchro.net [deon.george@bbs.leenooks.net]

    So envelope is to "bbs.leenooks.net". This should be the RCPT TO value passed to your mail server. That's *not* a relay attempt (unless your mail server thinks leenooks.net is a non-local domain).

    The "To:" header field of the message text is largely irrelevant (that's origianl recipient, "deon.george@vert.synchro.net" here). I think you mail server maybe doesn't like that? It should think it's a relay attempt however.

    Can you add an exemption for me in your fail2ban so we can at least test this?

    Aug 9 08:39:41 d-1-1 sendmail[1418]: x78MdUwB001418: lost input channel from synchro.net [71.95.196.36] to MTA-v4 after rcpt
    Aug 9 08:39:41 d-1-1 sendmail[1418]: x78MdUwB001418: from=<deon@leenooks...>, size=0, class=0, nrcpts=0, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA-v4, relay=synchro.net [71.95.196.36]

    So this example, I sent mail from me (deon@leenooks...), via GMAIL to deon.george@vert....

    Your system would have forwarded to me at deon.george@bbs...., however, when it arrived at my mail server (l.dlcm...), it was still addressed to deon.george@vert.... - and my server though you were trying to relay.

    I would have expected that you address it to deon.george@bbs.leenooks.... when it is arriving at my server?

    I agree.

    This does not look right:


    Subj: to deon.george@vert.synchro.net;
    Synchronet Attr: Deleted
    To : deon.george@vert.synchro.net (deon.george@bbs.leenooks.net)
    From: Rob Swindell #1 (rob@synchro.net) Date: Thu Aug 08 2019 07:44 pm UTC-7:00 (5.9 hours ago)

    software

    MIME-decoded iso-8859-1 plain-text:
    This is just a test, sent from rob@synchro.net to deon.george@vert.synchro.net

    -Rob

    I'm sure this worked recently...?

    It did. I probably broke it with my recent work with retaining MIME-encoded headers. Hrm.

    Actually, I'm not so sure anything's broken:

    SEND Message #7476 (4 of 5) from Rob Swindell #1 <rob@synchro.net> to deon.george@vert.synchro.net [deon.george@bbs.leenooks.net]

    So envelope is to "bbs.leenooks.net". This should be the RCPT TO value passed to your mail server. That's *not* a relay attempt (unless your mail server thinks leenooks.net is a non-local domain).

    The "To:" header field of the message text is largely irrelevant (that's origianl recipient, "deon.george@vert.synchro.net" here). I think you mail server maybe doesn't like that? It should think it's a relay attempt however.

    No, I confirmed there is an issue. It appears to be an issue with the saving and reuse of the SMTP "Forward Path", a change that was made back in April:

    So I answer this in another post (we were probably posting at the same time). My system blocked yours because of the relaying.

    So I think you are addressing email to the incorrect address, when you are forwarding an inbound email - I've explained that in another post.

    Aug 8 15:31:52 cvs sbbs: mail 0044 SMTPS RX: EHLO dom-3-1-s.dlcm.co

    Yeah, thanks.

    I've been running this config for years, and its only recently that servers are not starting to like it. (I'm doing a bit of trickery here...)

    Thanks I'll work on fixing that.

    So envelope is to "bbs.leenooks.net". This should be the RCPT TO value passed to your mail server. That's *not* a relay attempt (unless your mail server thinks leenooks.net is a non-local domain).

    Yeah, my server is only authoriative for bbs.leenooks.net (leenooks.net goes to gmail).

    Possibly. On an SMTP session, if you are doing "rcpt to: deon@vert..." you'll get the relay rejection.

    Can you add an exemption for me in your fail2ban so we can at least test this?

    Done, I've added 71.95.196.3[46] to the firewall rules before fail2ban, so you shouldnt be banned.

    So I updated my system, and I cant reproduce it at the moment, but as soon as I notice it I'll give you some details from that log.

    Okay.

    So, I've been trying to reproduce the issue on vert - without luck. I've sent emails and netmails, and no problem... :(

    I've noticed that your system shows "newest first", whereas mine shows "oldest first" - so I was even reading the last one and pressing "-" to get back to the first (and latest) message - and all rendered OK.

    I did get an error at some point - and it put up "Sysop notifed" - I was at message 6 of 6 and pressed "-" when the error popped up.

    I'll rebuild mine again Sunday and try again - just in case when I did the rebuild I didnt get the debugging you put in. (I'm away on the weekend.)

    The only difference I can think of is my synchronet is running in docker and you are on windows? My build log is here https://dev.leenooks.net/bbs/sbbs/-/jobs/918 in case that is of any use.

    It sounds like you got it. If it was "error showing mail message", that's new.

    Your sever is sending an invalid FQDN for the EHLO argument.

    so, ummm... HELO can be any name 'cause no security with HELO but EHLO must be a valid FQDN? that seems to be what i keep finding when i look things up...

    i'm not up on all these RFCs and basically only have empirical evidence from my own servers to go by... i need to check my SEMF filter on my firewall and see what it is doing for each... i do know that i have a setting for resolvable domains turned on... i'm just not sure if it applies to both HELO and EHLO...

    I'm using an experimental script to validate HELO/EHLO hostnames. PSI-Jack has a more complete script that he's working on (mtacheck.js?).

    In any case, I think many mail servers are requiring FQDN for both HELO and EHLO.

    I couldnt reproduce the blank message on your system, but I can on mine.

    But I did notice your system renders messages "newest" first, whereas I render them "oldest" first. Is that a setting somewhere? I'll try and match your config and see if I can produce it.

    I have this local change to my email_sec.js:

    from this:

    case 'R': // Read your mail
    bbs.read_mail(MAIL_YOUR, user.number);
    break;

    to this:

    case 'R': // Read your mail
    bbs.read_mail(MAIL_YOUR, user.number, LM_REVERSE);

    I found that error and it seems to be unrelated to the issue you're reporting (a blank message body).
