The misplaced colon was a typo in my email. The configuration files are as they should be on the server, and outgoing email still isn't working. I hope that didn't ruin my chances in getting help with my issue.

I tried some variations of esmtproutes (and corresponding changes in esmtpauthclient when trying with gmail) but I get the same "authentication required" error. See Below:

esmtproutes,587 >> mail gets bounced with auth required,587/SECURITY=STARTTLS >> mail gets bounced with unable to set minimum security,465/SECURITY=SSL3 >> mail gets stuck in mailq (SSL3 was just a guess and probably an invalid option),587 >> mail gets bounced with auth required

UNDELIVERABLE MAIL Your message to the following recipients cannot be delivered: <jo@EXAMPLE.COM>: []:


<<< 530-5.5.1 Authentication Required. Learn more at <<< 530 5.5.1 jv6sm4551948pbc.40

Please advise.

More Info:

The original document that helped me get emails working on my other non-courier machine was: With the exception that I had the following authinfo: |AuthInfo: "U:root" "" "P:xxxxxx" "M:LOGIN PLAIN"| Instead of: |AuthInfo: "" "" "P:xxxxxx" "M:LOGIN PLAIN"|

My relevant configuration is below.

Please advise.



That should be,587

/usr/local/etc/courier/esmtpauthclient PASSWORD

And that should be PASSWORD
