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!)

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. :)

Attachments work very well using this mailer. I'm using it to send out event photos to purchasers - nice, nice, nice. Thanks for the work on this, Horst!

      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
