Topic: Unable to send as alias

I've added some extra sender address extension delimiters - and . In addition to the default + character. I can receive OK on all 3 but only send on + where do I add the other characters as valid for sending m

Re: Unable to send as alias

- Curious, why do you need so many delimiters?
- Which config files did you modify to support extra delimiters?
- What error message did you get when sending as address with extra delimiters?

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Re: Unable to send as alias

Honestly I only need/want to use the fullstop [.] delimiter but as it's not functional for sending purposes I've left the others in for now.

Modifications I've made are as follows:

1)
in /opt/iredapd/settings.py added line
ALLOWED_LOGIN_MISMATCH_LIST_MEMBER = True

2)
in /opt/iRedAPD-2.4/libs/default_settings.py
changed line to the following
RECIPIENT_DELIMITERS = ['+-.']

3)
in /etc/postfix/main.cf
changed line to the following
recipient_delimiter = +-.

4)
in /etc/postfix/main.cf
add line
propagate_unmatched_extensions = canonical, virtual, alias, forward, include

5)
in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
changed the line to the following
recipient_delimiter = +-.

6)
in  /opt/iRedAPD-2.4/libs/default_settings.py
changed line to the following
RECIPIENT_DELIMITERS = ['+-.']

7)
in  /etc/postfix/recipient_canonical_maps
added line
/^(.+)[\+-.].+@(.*)/ ${1}@${2}

the error given from the roundcube UI is -

SMTP Error (554): Failed to add recipient "mailbox@example.com" (5.7.1 <mailbox@example.com>: Recipient address rejected: Sender is not same as SMTP authenticate username).

note that the SMTP in the error denotes the destination, not the sender. The error only presents when using a 'from' address containing a . fullstop, using a from address with a + or - will send fine.

if i'm to tail the /var/log/mail.log the error is much the same

Mar 12 00:17:43 mail roundcube: <2m7kgs10> SMTP Error: Failed to add recipient 'anywhere@test.com'. 5.7.1 <anywhere@test.com>: Recipient address rejected: Sender is not same as SMTP authenticate username (Code: 554) in /opt/www/roundcubemail-1.3.8/program/lib/Roundcube/rcube.php on line 1667 (POST /mail/?_task=mail&_unlock=loading1552349862610&_lang=en_US&_framed=1&_action=send)

Re: Unable to send as alias

I know I can add
ALLOWED_LOGIN_MISMATCH_SENDERS = ['mailbox@mydomain.com']
to /opt/iredapd/settings.py

but this would allow the mailbox to send as any address, I only want users to be able to send as user.xxx@domain.com where user is their own mailbox name

What's the real username part of your email address? i'd like to test it locally and fix it.

Just 'alec' without quotes, nothing fancy

Re: Unable to send as alias

I've just removed the change 7) (/etc/postfix/recipient_canonical_map is now an empty file) as it didn't seem to be required. I'm no longer able to send as any alias now however, alec-test@domain.com for example will give the error 5.7.1 - I'm not sure when it stopped working.

Re: Unable to send as alias

I think I've used some incorrect terminology here, to clarify - i'm attempting to change the sending and reply-to addresses in roundcube to 'send as' my main account with a delimited extension. so for example :

alec.iredmail@domain.com in place of simply alec@domain.com

The only way I've reliably able to do this is by adding ALLOWED_LOGIN_MISMATCH_SENDERS = ['alec@domain.com'] to /opt/iredapd/settings.py

unfortunately this has the side effect of allowing me to send as postmaster@domain.com , for example. I do not want users to be able to send-as other users, only themselves with a delimited extension.
