Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Sending Via SMTP Causes Timeout?
Jul 14, 2013
I am using Plesk Panel 11.0.9 (latest updates applied) on CentOS 6.4. at Strato. Unfortunately I can not send email from outside of the server (thunderbird). As I am not familiar wwith mail server configuration at all I would expect that plesk panel does that for me (right?)
* I can send emails via web mail.
* I can receive emails in thunderbird, but sending runs into a timeout.
* The plesk firewall configuration does have a rule for smtp (but I don't see for which port), so I would expect it is not a firewall issue
* I would like to send with some security (starttls and encrypted password), but sending does currently also not work with any combination of (non-)security setting.
My domain has been migrated from another provider, I added it myself via Plesk panel later. The only mail-related change I did without plesk panel was to copy the mailboxes from my old server to /var/qmail/mailnames. But this should not effect sending email...
i have this weird problem of emails not gettign delivered and i am hosting with theplanet. Every email is sitting on the queue and not delivered.
i checked with dnsreport and it says
Timed out [Last data sent: [Did not connect]]
and my exim_mainlog shows
R=dk_lookuphost defer (-1): host lookup did not complete 2008-06-03 04:49:59 SMTP command timeout on connection
i have restarted exim, checked firewall and still i am unable to fix my problem!
i again checked with dnsreport and my nameservers are failing
NS FAIL NS A timeout occurred getting the NS records from your nameservers! None of your nameservers responded fast enough. They are probably down or unreachable. I can't continue since your nameservers aren't responding. If you have a Watchguard Firebox,
it's due to a bug in their DNS Proxy, which must be disabled (31 Jul 2006 UPDATE: several years after being informed of this, there is a rumor that there is a fix that allows the Watchguard DNS proxy to work).
actually i want to know is this sending this email by my smtp server?

I'm using the API to dynamically create new subscriptions. However, I frequently never receive a response back for my request.
I have enabled graceful restart, which has made an improvement, but my requests still fail to return a response every now and then.
This is problematic, because the script needs to know whether the subscription has been successfully created or not. Often times, when the script times out, the subscription was successfully created. But Once and and a while that's not true, and it is causing inconsistencies in my system.
I am running Plesk Version: 12.0.18 on CentOS.Earlier today my service provider had a massive issue and my server was down for several hours. Upon it being back online i've restarted but now I cannot load any of my pages. I have 10 domains setup and if I ping their name servers or the server IP i get packets received now.
One of my installed domains is [URL] ... now if you try and load this url you get a time out but if you try to access admin page URL....None of the subscriptions are able to load their websites when i type in their URL and well it worked before it went down.
As I read, when Plesk and WHMCS are in the same server, you may have 502 bad gateway errors when creating an account through WHMCS..Page not Found/Timeout/502 Bad Gateway error creating accounts with Plesk 10+..By default Plesk 10 and above performs a forced restart of apache when an account is created or suspended which causes WHMCS to lose connection to the server, and if your WHMCS is on the same server, you will also lose connection to WHMCS at the same time.
In order to resolve this please refer to the following knowledgebase article for instructions on configuring Plesk to perform a graceful restart instead: URL..
But when I activate nginx in Plesk the 502 bad Gateway problem comes back.Is there an option to activate Nginx graceful restart in Plesk?
This is applies to both Horde and roundcube webmail client software;
Using Plesk 11.5.30 with Horde 5.1.5 or roundcube 0.9.5 on CentOS Linux release 6.5 (Final).
We have seen this behavior occur on multiple servers.
Clients experienced slow to no response after executing a search, which eventually results in a failed to communicate with the server-error in the webmail client.
The Apache server log shows script time-out errors when searching larger mailboxes (i.e. larger than 950 MB), this does not happen on smaller mailboxes.
We have seen errors like the following in the Apache server error log with Horde (personal data like IP-address and domain name are x'ed out):
[Thu Jun 19 14:55:06 2014] [warn] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xxx] mod_fcgid: read data timeout in 45 seconds, referer: http://webmail.xxxxxxx.com/imp/dynamic.php?page=mailbox [Thu Jun 19 14:55:06 2014] [error] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xxx] Premature end of script headers: ajax.php, referer: http://webmail.xxxxxxx.com/imp/dynamic.php?page=mailbox
And with Roundcube:
[Tue Jun 17 13:02:04 2014] [warn] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xxx] mod_fcgid: read data timeout in 45 seconds, referer: https://webmail.xxxxxxxxxxx.com/?_t...d=19445&_mbox=INBOX&_caps=pdf=0,flash=1,tif=0 [Tue Jun 17 13:02:04 2014] [error] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xxx] Premature end of script headers: index.php, referer: https://webmail.xxxxxxxxxxx.com/?_t...d=19445&_mbox=INBOX&_caps=pdf=0,flash=1,tif=0
Steps to reproduce:
- use a large mailbox (950 MB or higher) - login to the webmail (Horde or roundcube) - do a search in the search field on the top right - the time-out error should appear in the server Apache error log (after at least 45 seconds)
This seems like an inefficiency or bug in the search query that searches the user's mailbox. Is there any other way we can prevent this issue and the error messages?
I have a customer that wants to send emails using Exim and SMTP (using outlook), withouth authentication. Now.. the big question is ... how can I configure the Exim server to work withouth any authentication?
I know the risks of this withouth any authentication, but is my customer's server and he want to work in this way.
He is also asking if he is able to send emails withouth authentication using SMTP for certain IP addresses.. is that possible? Can be done for only 1 domain, or for the entire server?
I have a dedicated server with Linux. I have the following problem. Someone has hack my server and is sending illegal newsletters. My hosting sent me an abuse message and in the mailserver logfiles i see that is sending all the time.
I have a website with a 70,000 user email subscriber database. we currently send all emails from a dedicated mail server sitting in our office. its very old, unreliable and our emails are constantly going to peoples junk.
i've looked into things like campaign monitor, which looks great, but our custom made email system is already in place and all we really need is a dedicated and safe smtp server to use for the actual sending of the mail.
i've looked at things like SMTP2go which i have used when overseas and works great, but i'm looking for something more designed for sending of mass mailouts, as well as the day-to-day emails sent from the site (signup confirmations, forgotten password reminders, etc)
Since the last update I am having constant troubles with email accounts when sending or replying to email messages.
This is the message I am getting:-
"error sending your message: Service unavailable - try again later"
This is our system and the software is the Parellels with Business Manager and stuff.

I am having trouble with setting up an email account to set up the email I go to Mail > Create Email Address > and enter email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and check the "access to control panel" and create a password and also check "mailbox" .
But in the email client, when I go to use SMTP and I enter the following info:
- SMTP Server: example.com - username: email@example.com - password: password I created above - port 25 - user TLS
I get this error: Your other email provider is responding too slowly. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of your other domain for further information.
