Help! Exim & verizon.net
I am trying to set up a debian mail server that
sees the world through incoming.verizon.net and
Fetchmail is set up and recieving mail fine.
I have muddled through a few small setups of
sendmail, smail and exim over the years.
Verizon has "authenticated SMTP" which is one
snag. I don't know how I'm supposed to set
this up on my end. I don't even know which
protocols are equivalent from smtp EHLO output
and exim terminology.
There are six mail accounts that map like so:
Local user account: firstname.lastname@example.org
Verizon Email ID: vze0xx0x
Verizon Email Alias: email@example.com
I am not sure how to set up my email-addresses file or
the email passwd file that I think I need.
An EHLO request to outgoing.verizon.net gives
AUTH LOGIN PLAIN
The exim log looks like:
