Does anyone have any success setting up OpenMailBox with Modest? I successfully receive the mail but I can't send. My configuration:

Code:
outgoing server: smtp.openmailbox.org
secure authentication: login
username: my-login@openmailbox.org
secure connection: SSL
port: 465
I tried using
Code:
secure connection: TLS
port: 587 or 465
But it doesn't work with either port

edit: tried again, with TLS and 587 and somehow worked... Should anyone try themselves, here's the correct config:

Code:
outgoing server: smtp.openmailbox.org
secure authentication: login
username: my-login@openmailbox.org
secure connection: TLS
port: 587
But still wondering: does the connection with SSL fail?

SSL is deprecated, most servers no longer enable it.

Are you using latest libtinymail and modest from CSSU devel?
As only those have the updated libs to enable TLS!

When it comes to mails (be it SMTP or IMAP), "TLS" usually means STARTTLS (start the session as plain text then switch to secure layer using a STARTTLS mechanism, which is more or less protocol-dependent).
"SSL" usually refers to a classic SSL session (with ssl/tls handshake from the begining).

smtp servers (for enduser submission) usually have STARTTLS support on their submission (587) port, while they only have regular "ssl" on their smtps (465) port.
Some admins decide to just disable the smtps port while others keep it enabled as it might help with some users behind silly firewalls.

As for OpenMailbox, both ports work for me when using s_client, and it reports TLSv1 in both cases.
Code:
openssl s_clienct -connect smtp.openmailbox.org:465
openssl s_clienct -connect smtp.openmailbox.org:587 -starttls smtp
I'd suggest you try it as well and see if result differs.
Maybe libtinymail doesn't enable TLSv1 in SSL sessions but only for STARTTLS sessions, which would be a bug

Nope, I'm using CSSU Thumb, and using the STARTTLS port.
I wasn't aware that any SSL is deprecated.

And now I'm suddenly getting an "STMP authentication failed", with all settings left as described in OP.
