Issue #953 has been updated by tuxillo.

Description updated
Status changed from New to In Progress
Assignee changed from corecode to tuxillo


All points were handled but the third one. I've opened an issue in dma github's page: https://github.com/corecode/dma/issues/15
We're on dma 0.7 now, latest seems to be 0.8.

Once the bug is fixed, ideally we would bring latest stable version of dma.

Bug #953: dma.c: some errors

Author: dragonfly-bugs
Status: In Progress
Priority: Normal
Assignee: tuxillo
Target version: 

1. According to the man page, -q does not take an argument (see
simple patch below).

2. dma sends EHLO without reading the server greeting first.  This
causes rejections by some anti-spam measures, e.g., greet_pause in
sendmail 8, or "illegal pipelining" in some other MTAs.

3. dma does not read the server greeting to determine whether
STARTTLS or AUTH are available (minor problem as this probably is
just a configuration problem because only one "smarthost" is

4. If you want to make this a "full blown" mail submission program,
you might want to merge some features from femail.c (written by
Henning Brauer) into it, e.g., to read recipients from the message
headers, or to add required headers. femail.c lacks queueing which
dma supports.
