SMTP Auth
« on: March 24, 2004, 03:26:59 AM »
Greetings!

I've just installed Avast 4.1 with Pegasus 4.12.  It seems to handle all the POP# aspects well (for 5 different accounts).  However, my server is requiring SMTP Auth and Avast doesn't seem to want to cooperate here.  When I try to send I get "Improper AUTH Response".  Unfortunately, even if I disable the outgoing mail scanning, I still get the error.  Any help on this is appreciated, Thanks!

Also, here is what the server log says:

[2004-03-23 20:39:43] WARN:  SMTPD [192.168.0.10]: Invalid user password for user joeuser [o-)*z]

and yes, the .ini file contains UseDefaultSMTP = 0

Here's how I solved that problem (YMMV)
1)Go to Tools|Internet Options
2)Click SMTP
3)Choose the server name, then choose Edit
4)Click on the Security Tab
5)Login to SMTP server using POP3 username/password

He said me this:

Confirm first 'what type' of 'smtp authorisation' each isp was using prior to installing  Avast. Pegasus allows 3 possibilities:

1) 'pop before read'.  
2) 'Force' username and password.
3) get username and password from pop settings. (not necessarily in this order).

Try using the same authorisation method after installing Avast, and  
'possibly' a combination of 1 and 2 above (Force and Pop before read)

Make certain the the smtp server 'security' tab > username contains the correct information required for the isp/Avast, i.e., user.isp#smtp.server (dependent on isp requirements). Of course the normal localhost routing  (127.0.0.1) needs to be entered  for the pop and smtp names.  

All the above assumes the each Pegasus 'Identity' has individual pop and smtp profiles (better than trying to use the same pop smtp profiles on multiple 'Identities').

Does this help?

Excellent!  Works like a champ!  The key was the 127.0.0.1 but follow what Technical said and anyone working with Pegasus will get it.

Thanks.

btgest,

May I ask who your ISP is?  I am hoping it is not Tiscali.  Pegasus multiple accounts, Tiscali and Avast do not seem to get along.  The combination of the 3 usually requires me to come up with specialized configuration.

Authentication usually takes place within Pegasus settings as Technical has stated.  It is extremely important for all the settings to be the same.

Let us know.
