Emacs VM and smtpmail with DH


#1

hey,

i’m looking for anyone who’s successfully set up emacs Viewmail (VM) to work with DreamHost.

i’m trying to setup smtpmail.el and the associated settings, and possibly TLS. when i do the vanilla setup, i’m not getting any kind of login prompt to connect to the SMTP server, but the trace log shows “relay access denied”. when i try to pull down the latest smtpmail.el, i get compilation errors :frowning:

if anyone’s got experience in this realm, lemme know and i can provide a lot more details (and a couple of beers for your trouble if you want…).

I’m trying to accomplish the same thing (rmail instead of VM though). I have an smtpmail configuration that works perfectly from my home Linux PC, but when I try the exact same configuration in a shell session on a Dreamhost server, I get “relay access denied”.

Any Emacs hackers out there?
