WireMailSmtp

Recommended Posts

I'm have some config problems with Wire Mail SMTP on a online website

My provider is One.com and after a online chat with the support, all my settings are correct: 

  • smtp hostname: send.one.com
  • smtp port 465
  • use SSL  yes
  • correct smtp user 
  • correct smtp password

With an email-client (Thunderbird) I get access, not with "Test settings now" of Wire Mail SMTP:

error:

  • ERROR: SMTP settings did not work
  • could not connect to the host "send.one.com": connection time out

Has anyone any idea?

Perhaps try ports 2525 or 587 in case they work? It's worth the effort, this module + Mandrill is a superb combination. Good luck.

When you tried with the Thunderbird, was it on the same machine as the website is? Or the other way round: have you tried this settings and testconnection from an install on your localhost? If not, you also have to check if the server where your site is hosted has no outgoing firewall restrictions that get in your way.

If the install is on an online machine, you can use the php library here in the spoiler. I often use this for quick checks on hosting machines to see if I'm able to reach other machines, ports, services from there. It is a pure PHP lib to ping severs on specified ports with defined transports.

My website is online, hosted by One.com, thunderbird is on my own machine

The spoiler-script  shows the message "The service SMTP is currently down. IP: adress  Port: 465". Thx horst for this excellent script. 

I had an hour chat with One.com Chat Support, where they suggested to change ports, SSL off, ...  (what I tried before).  Then I discoverd that SSL in my configuration panel was not activated.  The chat support said it must be activated, and after a few hours waiting, still the same error-messages.

thx cstevensjr, alan and horst, the search goes on

If the script says the service is down, this only mean that it couldn't connect to the target server. So, when on the website server the outgoing request is blocked (firewall), this would also result in the same error message. If you have email / smtp accounts on other servers, e.g. gmail, hotmail or what ever, I suggest try to connect to them via the test script and see if it is possible.

And good luck! :)

Eureka, connection problem is solved

When a script is used for sending SMTP (One.com):

  • Server: NOT send.one.com  -> mailout.one.com
  • Port: 25
  • SSL: no
  • Authentication: no

With the 'spoiler-script' of Horst, no errors and in with my old website jusing AcyMailing (Joomla), it's also working fine now.

In Wire Mail SMTP, following error stays. I left SMTP user and SMTP is blank, but I assume that Wire Mail SMTP is always checking authentication??

  • server does not require authentication
  • ERROR: SMTP settings did not work

I've recently moved my website to another server and now wiremailsmtp doesn't work anymore, it display this message:
 

Warning: stream_socket_enable_crypto(): Peer certificate CN=`email-smtp.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com' did not match expected CN=`52.19.6.114' in /home/sodd/public_html/site/modules/WireMailSmtp/smtp_classes/smtp.php on line 1255

any idea? thanks

It is a certificate that doesn't match. This has not directly to do with the module but with the server (certificate). An expected IP (52.19.6.114) doesn't match.

The IP (52.19.6.114) is mapped to the hostname "ec2-52-19-6-114.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com"

and the hostname (email-smtp.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com) resolves to IP "52.30.192.168".

So this is something that you need to sort out with the hosting company.

A small contribution:  Add an option to have ability to use Self-Signed Certificate on a given SMTP server with WireMailSmtp and PHP >= 5.6
 
What PHP say - source : https://secure.php.net/manual/en/migration56.openssl.php
 

Stream wrappers now verify peer certificates and host names by default when using SSL/TLS.

 
 
HOWTO:
-----------
 
1) In file smtp.php, class smtp_class, we add a member variable and a small function :

/* Allow self signed certificate */
var $smtp_certificate = false;
Function AllowSelfSignedCertificate($allow = false)
{
        $version=explode(".",function_exists("phpversion") ? phpversion() : "3.0.7");
        $php_version=intval($version[0])*1000000+intval($version[1])*1000+intval($version[2]);
        if($php_version<5006000)
            return;
        if($allow) {
		stream_context_set_option($this->connection, 'ssl', 'verify_peer', false);
		stream_context_set_option($this->connection, 'ssl', 'allow_self_signed', true);
	}
	else
	{
		stream_context_set_option($this->connection, 'ssl', 'verify_peer', true);
		stream_context_set_option($this->connection, 'ssl', 'allow_self_signed', false);
	}
}

 
and, in the Connect() method, call the function just in before we check for the result of stream_socket_enable_crypto :
 
Find : 

$this->OutputDebug('Starting TLS cryptograpic protocol');
				
if(!($success = stream_socket_enable_crypto($this->connection, 1, STREAM_CRYPTO_METHOD_TLS_CLIENT)))

Replace to

$this->OutputDebug('Starting TLS cryptograpic protocol');

$this->AllowSelfSignedCertificate($this->smtp_certificate);

if(!($success = stream_socket_enable_crypto($this->connection, 1, STREAM_CRYPTO_METHOD_TLS_CLIENT))

2) In the file smtp_message.php, class smtp_message_class, add a member variable :

/* Allow Self Signed Certificate */
var $smtp_certificate = 0;

In the method StartSendingMessage() , assign the new member variable:

$this->smtp->smtp_certificate = $this->smtp_certificate;

 
3) In the file WireMailSmtpAdaptator, class hnsmtp, add a member variable :

private $smtp_certificate   = false;

and in the method set_var_val(), add a case smtp_certificate for our checkbox :
Find :

case 'smtp_ssl':
case 'smtp_start_tls':
case 'smtp_debug':
case 'smtp_html_debug':

Replace :

case 'smtp_certificate':
case 'smtp_ssl':
case 'smtp_start_tls':
case 'smtp_debug':
case 'smtp_html_debug':

In the class constructor, add :

$this->emailMessage->smtp_certificate           = $this->smtp_certificate;

4) In the WireMailSmtpConfig.php file, add a field :
 
add : 

$field = $modules->get('InputfieldCheckbox');
$field->attr('name', 'smtp_certificate');
$field->label = __('PHP >= 5.6 - Allow self signed certificate');
$field->attr('value', $data['smtp_certificate']);
$field->attr('checked', $data['smtp_certificate'] ? 'checked' : '');
$fieldset->add($field);

5) In the WireMailSmtp.module file, add a settings to the getDefaultdata() :
Find :

'valid_recipients'         => ''     // email addresses of valid recipients. String that we convert to array at runtime.

Add after (take care of comma ','):

'smtp_certificate'		   => 0		  // allow or not self signed certificate (PHP >= 5.6)

 
Result :

1455460292-capture.png

Hope it help. Sorry for my english ^_^

@flydev: many thanks for your contribution, I have added it to the module by following your perfect guidance step by step. Very Nice. So, I have not tested it because I have no server with a Self-Signed Certificate at hand. But I very likely trust someones code who is able to contribute PHP code backwards compatible from PHP 5.6 to PHP 3.0! :lol:^-^

$version=explode(".",function_exists("phpversion") ? phpversion() : "3.0.7");

Cool !  but...  I forgot the following line in step 3, class hnsmtp; In the constructor we need to add

$this->emailMessage->smtp_certificate           = $this->smtp_certificate;

I edited my previous post containing the instructions.

Nice module and thanks for the update, I tested it right now and it work like a charm!

Just wondering if anyone has tried this Module with MailGun?

I'm planning moving all my Mandarill App based settings to MailGun and at the moment mails are tested positive but no emails are recieved by me or even logged in my MailGun control panel.

Thanks

Hi,

it is possible to set the WireMailSmtp config settings at runtime and send email using different settings for each user?

Thank you

Yes you can read and write modules config data via PWs API for all modules. Please refer to the docs, or search the forum via google for something like $modules->get("WireMailSMTP")-> getConfigData(), or readConfigData() ? and ->writeConfigData($data).

Sorry, I'm on mobile and cannot provide links or exact code snippets ATM. :)

----

EDIT:

you can use this:

$data = wire('modules')->getModuleConfigData("WireMailSmtp");

// or, regarding on scope,
$data = $modules->getModuleConfigData("WireMailSmtp");

after modifying, you can write it back:

wire('modules')->saveModuleConfigData("WireMailSmtp", $data);

// or

$modules->saveModuleConfigData("WireMailSmtp", $data);

I wonder if someone could give me an idea how to use the attachment aspect to WireMailSmtp? I am doing a simple form that allows the upload of pdf's only. I am unsure how to access the file size, type, etc. so that I can sanitize things a bit.

Thanks in advance.

No need to start a new topic for a module that has its own support forum + have a look at page 1 of this thread

Thanks Kongondo. By the way, page 1 doesn't answer this question (unless I am being a complete dunce!)

It does:

attachment ($filename) - add attachment file(s) - string or array()

$mail = wireMail(); 
$mail->attachment($filename); // string $filename or array $filenames

what means: you can add any single file path as a string with the attachment() method, or you can add multiple files at once with its pathes stored in an array.

Everything else, e.g. how you submit your form and / or upload the files, does not belong to WireMailSmtp. For this, you may find information and examples on php.net. :)

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support for 60€ per hour (excl vat).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

      Some time ago I created a site profile for creation of a REST API with ProcessWire. Since I kept struggeling with updating stuff between different projects which use this, I decided to convert it into a module. It is now ready for testing: https://github.com/thomasaull/RestApi
      Additionally I added a few small features:
      automatic creation of JWT Secret at module install routes can be flagged as auth: false, which makes them publicly accessible even though JWT Auth is activated in module settings To check things out, download and install the module and check the folder /site/api for examples.
      If you find any bugs or can think of improvements, please let me know!
