Hi.

I have moved my site to another VPS and now I get "Error in hnsmtp::send : cannot connect to smtp-server!".

Differences in VPS: php 5.4 -> 5.6 and http->https. Can it be the issue in my case or I must dig in other place?

p.s. I can connect to smtp server in console with

#openssl s_client -crlf -connect smtp.yandex.ru:465

so it is not a firewall I guess.

I had a similar situation a couple of months ago when I tried to upgrade my domains to PHP 5.6.x on my web host.  I never resolved this issue and ended up reverting to PHP 5.5.x

Note:  The following is what I found out by using Goggle search.  It may apply or not apply to your situation, however I hope that maybe it will cause others to chime in on possible solutions

All encrypted client streams now enable peer verification by default. By default, this will use OpenSSL's default CA bundle to verify the peer certificate. In most cases, no changes will need to be made to communicate with servers with valid SSL certificates, as distributors generally configure OpenSSL to use known good CA bundles. - OpenSSL changes in PHP 5.6.x (PHP Manual)

It appears that in PHP 5.6.0 (at least the version in Debian jessie, with openssl 1.0.1h-3), this function is now validating SSL certificates (in a variety of ways). First, it appears to fail for untrusted certificates (i.e. no matching CA trusted locally), and secondly, it appears to fail for mismatched hostnames in the request and certificate.

"PHP 5.6 now verifies SSL certificates, the "fsockopen" function fails in the "ConnectToHost" method due to mismatched certificate CN (expects host name, but IP is given instead)." -Klemen (PHP 5.6 compatibility)

The problem is that this change is resulting in an error on Email Class SMTP protocol:

fsockopen(): SSL operation failed with code 1. OpenSSL Error messages: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

When you update to PHP 5.6+ the "CA Root" have to be set, or OpenSSL certificate verify don't work correctly.

Step One: Install CA_Root (In my case, on FreeBSD 10, via Ports)
/usr/ports/security/ca_root_nss

After install, the Pem Cert will be located at:
/usr/local/etc/ssl/cert.pem

Step Two: Add to php.ini the openssl.cafile

openssl.cafile = /usr/local/etc/ssl/cert.pem

Restart your HTTP Server, and verify with phpinfo()

@cstevensjr thanks for your answer, it point me to the right direction.

The problem is in old version of smtp class: Certificate is issued to hostname, but smtp class sends IP. In the last version it was fixed and works fine for me now on php5.6.

@horst, update smtp class, please.

@horst - just in case you missed it: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/issues/3

I believe I have setup my Github the wrong way, I get notify messages for allmost everything, but not for issues of my own repos. I haven't seen it, but will look into it now.

There seems to be something was changed with the newer smtp class that we have changed 2 weeks ago. But anyways, it seems to be fixed now.

@Pete, please can you have a look to it? I haven't changed anything on the behave of To-Recipients, only CC and BCC.

How can I get the sender Emailaddress set in the config of the module, from a template or module?

Thank you?

That's it.

$data = wire('modules')->getModuleConfigData('WireMailSmtp');
echo $data['sender_email'];
echo $data['sender_name'];

Thank you

I can't believe I've not thanked you Horst for this module. I've been using it for about a year, linked to Mandrill, a match made in heaven ^_^ and no false-positive spam rejected emails.

Thank you again, cheers, -Alan.

having some trouble with CC, i'm supplying an array, like this:

$mail->cc($array);

and i know my array is good, and CC works for 1 CC (I have $mail->sendSingle(true); )

but it will only CC the last member of the array, no matter which array type i input.

......

OK - forget this, i just updated to the latest version and this was fixed...

First time using this module and I get this error:

"it is not supported any of the authentication mechanisms required by the server"

The SMTP server is an open relay restricted by sender IP, no authentication required.

I have tested using PHPMailer succesfully.

Any ideas?

Can you please provide some information regarding your setup for this website (versions of PHP/ProcessWire, type of hosting used, the hosting provider/or whether local hosted)?  Have you followed the instructions from your hosting provider regarding SMTP setup details, if not locally hosted?

Can you please provide some information regarding your setup for this website (versions of PHP/ProcessWire, type of hosting used, the hosting provider/or whether local hosted)?  Have you followed the instructions from your hosting provider regarding SMTP setup details, if not locally hosted?

It appears this code as part of smtp.php, generates a false positive in my case (no authentication required)

While the test fails, the module still sends mail correctly.

if($success
&& strlen($mechanism)==0)
{
   $this->error="it is not supported any of the authentication mechanisms required by the server";
   $success=0;
}

Commenting out $success will make the test pass, but probably not a good idea.

Nothing special about the hosting enviroment, as I said all email scripts, the normal wireMail() works, along with PHPMailer.

The issue is the SMTP server does not require authentication, which seems to be a requirement of the smtp.php as above, which in turn causes the test of the module to fail.

The important thing is that the emails are processed and work.  I believe if wireMail() is working then this module is working (as it uses wireMail()). 

If you could open an issue on Github, the module creator/maintainer can have a look at the issue you are reporting.

+1 what cstevensjr said re Github.

Re the problem, it sounds like the module assumes some authentication will be required (not surprised that it assumes this, surprised there's SMTP services which don't require auth).

On a general note, this module providing as it does a way to send mail via Mandrill.com, has been a life saver for me. No more lost emails due to recipients email systems assuming an email from a tiny unknown host is spam (as Mandrill delivers millions of emails their reputation is superb and so emails invariably get to their destination w/o getting rejected).

Hey, you are all right. We have had another issue with authentication and the test, where the original SMTP-class also allowed the missing of authentication. In this regard, the user could successfully pass the test (connecting to the server, IP + Port) without providing authentication credentials.

Therefore I have hacked the original class with this code you have posted above. (assuming there will be no open relay servers out there in 2015) But yep, now you comes along here. :lol:

I will have a closer look to it and provide a better fix. (apropriate for both situations). In the meantime you can A) comment the part in the code, or B) don't use the test anymore on tis server.

Thanks for your help.

This has nothing to do with WireMailSmtp but I have a question:

Can't wrap my head around this... The module is not autoloading, only extending WireMail, but it loads on demand... I'm lost :-)

Have a look into Functions.php line 805, function wireMail():

	$mail = null; 
	$modules = wire('modules'); 

	// attempt to locate an installed module that overrides WireMail
	foreach($modules as $module) {
		$parents = class_parents("$module"); 
		if(in_array('WireMail', $parents) && $modules->isInstalled("$module")) { 
			$mail = wire('modules')->get("$module"); 
			break;
		}
	}
	// if no module found, default to WireMail
	if(is_null($mail)) $mail = new WireMail(); 

:lol:

      Hi,
      just stumbled over a little module that i built for my last project. it helped me to test performance of my rockdatatables module to generate 3000 random json datasets and i want to share it with you. maybe it saves some time for someone.
      https://gitlab.com/baumrock/RockDummyData/
      easy example:
      $rdd = $modules->get('RockDummyData'); for($i=0; $i<15; $i++) { // this has to be inside the for-loop to always get a new dummy $dummy = $rdd->getDummy(); echo date("d.m.Y H:i:s", $dummy->timestamp) . "<br>"; } more advanced:
      $json = new stdClass(); $json->data = array(); $rdd = $modules->get('RockDummyData'); for($i=0; $i<3000; $i++) { // this has to be inside the for-loop to always get a new dummy $dummy = $rdd->getDummy(); $obj = new stdClass(); $obj->name = $dummy->forename . ' ' . $dummy->surname; $obj->position = $dummy->job; $obj->office = $dummy->city; $obj->color = $dummy->color; $obj->start_date = new stdClass(); $obj->start_date->display = date('d.m.Y',$dummy->timestamp); $obj->start_date->sort = $dummy->timestamp; $obj->salary = rand(0,10000); $json->data[] = $obj; } echo json_encode($json); you have to store your random datasets on your own into the /data folder. there are several services for creating all kinds of random data on the web - if you know one service that allows sharing those datasets let me know and i can include common needed data into the module

      Hello!
      I need your assistance please. I purchased the module FormBuilder. Unfortunately, the module discontinued delivering customer submissions to e-mail box specified in the module settings. Direct mailing to the e-mail box works OK. The module settings stays the same and are correct, like "Send e-mail to administrator(s) is checked. The last version of FormBuilder 3.0 has been installed. Please advise how to resolve the issue becase I cannot get orders from customers anymore (((

      As described in this post (https://processwire.com/talk/topic/8551-custom-urls-for-pages/?p=82742) the option 'Name Format Children' under the tab 'Family' in template settings doesn't work properly and also not as expected. I had a look inside the code and made some changes which are working properly, which offers much more options, more consistency and less code too.

      The result is the following. You have 3 Options for generating name and title, which could be combined in endless variations.
      Name is always derived from title, same like creating pages manually.
      type date: if function detects # character anywhere in the string, conversion will be: deletion of # and string will be used as format parameter for PHP date() function type field: if string is a fieldname of the parent page the value of this field will be used type string: if string doesn't fit to the 2 preceeding it will be taken as it is All parts (separated by comma) will be composed in the order of setting. You can use unlimited numbers of parts

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
       
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
       
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
       
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
       
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
       
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
       
      Warning/Consideration
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
       
      Backend
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
       
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
       
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
       
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
       
      Backend
