Hey lxnay,
you're maybe seraching for fetchmail. it's able to collect mail from pop3/imap accounts and puts them in the local smtp queue. very handy.

A Issue i'm experiencing with OX is when i add acl's as mentioned in the slapd.conf knowledge and bookmark trees aren't working anymore. anyone else got that problem ?

I am getting an error when I try to login through the web interface. Most of the time I get "servlet intranet unavailable" It seems to me that tomcat5 did not emerge correctly. One thing I did notice is that /usr/local/open-xchange/share/servlets is empty. Is this correct or do I need to link the tomcat5 servlets here?

It should be empty. Try to install the servlet.war through the tomcat manager it is imho a much better way to deploy the app. I posted about it a few posts above.

Emerging ldap with round brackets brings up error right at the beginning
Code:

Any comments from any one?

about the proper syntax of an ebuild ?

it should be { }

Check out the ebuild you will see a few examples of the same..

Code:
myconf="${myconf} `use_enable crypt`"
    myconf="${myconf} `use_enable ipv6`"
    myconf="${myconf} `use_with sasl cyrus-sasl` `use_enable sasl spasswd`"
    myconf="${myconf} `use_with readline`"
    myconf="${myconf} `use_with ssl tls` `use_with samba lmpasswd`"
    myconf="${myconf} `use_enable tcpd wrappers`"
    myconf="${myconf} `use_enable odbc sql`"
    myconf="${myconf} `use_enable perl`"
    myconf="${myconf} `use_enable slp`"

When adding a contact I get: "The contact has been created successfully in the database \nbut couldn't be inserted into the LDAP addressbook: Naming err in Contact.Ldap javax.NamingException: Property inetOrgPersonAttributeDescriptionName not found under "com.openexchange.groupware.ContactInsEdit"

When trying to delete the contact which appears because it has been created on the DB, only not on LDAP I get: "The contact wasn't deleted from the database: SQL err in Contact java.sql.SQL.Exception: ERROR: SET AUTOCOMMIT TO OFF is no longer supported"

The install is running on Gentoo and I have configured my LDAP ACL's according to the Wiki.

Also, the error messages disappear after a fraction of a second meaning I have to do some nifty work with printscreen to catch them. The /usr/local/open-xchange/var/log/ dir is empty - should I be getting a log of these messages somewhere?

I posted this on the OX support forum yesterday but so far have had no replies that have got me any closer to solving any of the issues above.

Thanks,

Alex

it is your jdbc I posted how to fix that in this thread. you will need to get the correct postgresql.jar that will take care of ERROR: SET AUTOCOMMIT TO OFF.. I am using pg73jdbc3.jar

Looks like your ldap setup may be incorrect too. But i would fix the other error first.

Hi,

I found the correct .jar for jdbc on page 6 of the thread and after restarting tomcat and OX I can delete things. However, I still can't get LDAP contacts to add with a 'proper' ldap configuration I have to add the access to * by * write to get it to work. The lines I've got which should do it are:
Code:
access to dn="ou=addr,uid=(.*),ou=Users,ou=OxObjects,dc=zednax,dc=com" attr=uid,objectClass,entry filter=(objectClass=OXUserObject)
        by self write
        by dn="uid=$1,ou=Users,ou=OxObjects,dc=zednax,dc=com" write
        by * none

access to dn.subtree="o=AddressBook,ou=OxObjects,dc=zednax,dc=com"
        by group="cn=AddressAdmins,o=AddressBook,ou=OxObjects,dc=zednax,dc=com" write
        by users read
        by * none


Also, I'd love to find some error logs or at least a way to stop it from redirecting after an error...

Hi,

Yep, that's where my ACL is from the OX wiki... Unfortunatley I spoke to soon about giving write access to everyone working, it doesn't. I did see somewhere in the 18 pages of this thread a bit about some java configuration, but I can't find it now....

I think I'm going to have to find a way of amalgamating this thread so I can search it.

User guide in case people did not know about it. It is for SLOX but it is for the most part the same.

you should add java-config to the emerge list before sun-jdk so java and javac will end up in the path without any manual changes

OX 0.8 Beta to be released this Friday (Feb. 18 / 2005)!!

http://mirror.open-xchange.org/ox/EN/news/news_detail2640.htm

I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend. :) init-zero--send me all that extra documentation you've been promising me! even if it's in rough notes. :)

As well, with the release of Hula (hula-project.org) it seems that the OX team will be adding that to their list of supported servers. I'm guessing since Hula has integrated all of the server technologies, including Web, that Hula would have to be hosted on a box separate from the OX server. Either way, it's great to see the OX and Hula teams cooperating.

Quote:

Hula project - Novell and Netline, perfect together.

You may have already seen the exciting announcement by Novell and Netline on the Hula Project -- a new community project to create an open source e-mail and collaboration server.

Novell and Netline decided several months ago to have two independent open source projects independent but also very complementary. That strategy gives Netline the opportunity to cooperate first with Novell, but allows us also to keep our overall integration approach in place -- for client and server infrastructure -- and also be able to cooperate with other vendors in the market.

Only after Netline had open sourced OPEN-XCHANGE™ was Novell in a position to complement Netmail with this well established open source project.

Hula and Netline are a perfect complement. Where the strengths of Netmail are on the infrastructure side, OPEN-XCHANGE is something completely different: a modular, modern, open, standards-based architecture with superior groupware features and integration capabilities with other groupware environments like Microsoft Exchange.

Hula is positioned as a solid mail server with an open architecture, where OPEN-XCHANGE will expand that functionality to become a real collaboration solution. Hula is not able to support the Outlook client and they are not intending to do so, because their technical and feature approach does not match with Outlook features.

Using NetMails NMAP protocol now available through public licenses as part of this initiative -- in addition to the standard SMTP/LDAP protocols allows for richer functionality and much tighter integration of OPEN-XCHANGE and e-mail in general, enabling the community to create even more advanced functionality.

Combining these advanced mail functions with our award-winning collaboration attributes gives the open source world a rallying point to create a competitive alternative to the traditional proprietary solutions.

We will use Hula as a scalable and robust mail server when we ship OPEN-XCHANGE through Novells channels. But we will not rely completely on the Hula mail server technology. It is simply one of several options for the customer.

Making e-mail part of the standard data formats mix of OPEN-XCHANGE creates a significant addition to the "personal information hub" platform functionality of OPEN-XCHANGE. And adding replication by e-mail to this "hub" will make this information location independent, allowing for integration of mobile devices of all kinds and for multi-site and cluster configurations.

In the future, adding Novells Identity Management and products such as Evolution and iFolders will provide a powerful end-to-end solution to customers so far unavailable in the Linux space.

Please join us in embracing this important initiative.

So I said, narrow the focus. Your "use case" should be, there's a 22 year old college student living in the dorms. How will this software get him laid?

That got me a look like I had just sprouted a third head, but bear with me, because I think that it's not only crude but insightful. "How will this software get my users laid" should be on the minds of anyone writing social software (and these days, almost all software is social software).

Code:

smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl2_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous

Good day all,

I've finished a rough draft outlining how to get OX installed on Gentoo using:

- Postfix / Cyrus / SASL
- OpenLDAP
- Apache 2 / Tomcat 5
- PostgreSQL

As I said, it's a rough draft, so I don't go into detail on each services but it should give you enough info to get the basics for OX up and running. I welcome any comments, suggestions, fixes, and additions. You can currently find it in PDF here:

http://www.mikefetherston.ca/OX/OX_Install.pdf


The above URL does not seem to be valid as of now. Is it updated?

Regards.

Yes, the HTML HOWTO is still in "beta" even though it covers a completely updated install of 0.7.5. If you're looking for those "extra" instructions you can find them in the PDF still. I plan on updating the HOWTO to cover OX v0.8PR. At that time I also plan to add the supplemental instructions from the PDF HOWTO.

You can find the links to both the HTML and PDF at:

I would like to send out a big thank you for all those who help write this document. After fighting with Fedora 3, I am halfway through the install with this guide. If all goes well this should be a great way to sneak gentoo into my organization. 8)

Chotchki, glad to hear it helped you out! The HOWTO is geared towards Gentoo, but if you're familiar with Linux you can easily adapt it to your distro of choice. I intended it to be a guide to take you from a completely fresh and bare Gentoo install to a working mail and ldap server and then build on that to get OX working, which explains the length of the document.

Again, thanks for your kind words!

Picked this up off the OX General mailing list:

Quote:

Hi All

I've manged to get the OX 0.8 Administration tools working on SuSE 9.2
and Martin Kauss sugested I tell you all about it. This may work on
other platforms but let me know...

1. Extract OX and run a ./configure with all the options
2. Edit the OXEXTRACTION/system/umin/oxuserminconfig.properties and edit
the LDAP details so they
match what OpenLDAP is set with (I had to change the
LDAP_BASEDN=dc=example,dc=org line)
3. Run a make and make install
4. Copy the PREFIX/lib/umin.war to TOMCATHOME/webapps
5. Restart Tomcat
6. Check that umin.war has extracted into TOMCATHOME/webapps/umin
7.

a.) If using mod_jk2, edit workers2.properties with

[uri:/umin/*]
worker=ajp13:localhost:8009

b.) If using mod_jk (like I was), edit your /etc/apache2/conf.d/jk.conf
with

JkMount /umin/* ajp13

8. Restart Apache2
9. It works!

As I said, let me know how you get on.

Seb

I am skipping finalizing the v0.20b HOWTO. The instructions are all there, it's just missing some of the extra functionality that can be found in the v0.15 PDF. I'm doing this in favour of a "Bleeding Edge" HOWTO based on OX 0.8PR on 2005.0RC5 ~x86. I intend to merge the missing instructions from the 0.15 HOWTO into this new document. If I have time, I will create a more "stable" HOWTO based on 2004.3 and OX 0.7.5 -- this all depends on when OX 0.8 is released as stable.

Thank you to all for all of your valuable input, questions, and contributions!

With regard to the past JDBC driver issues... init-zero, can you shed some light on which version gave you troubles and which version you had success with? Looking at http://jdbc.postgresql.org/download.html#serverselection it says that we should be using JDBC3 (because of JVM 1.4). Or did you use the JDBC3 driver from this page and not portage??
