Re: Configuring nginx as mail proxy

Thanks. That was indeed my first issue. I did sudo port edit nginx, added --with-mail to the config options, reinstalled, and now I am passed that error.

I then got an error that no events was present so I just added
events {
worker_connections 1;
}

Now nginx is starting but I never see any hit to my mock service despite it being specified in auth_http
auth_http http://localhost:8080/authorize;
No errors reported in the error log.

When is nginx expected to hit the url specified in nginx? When it gets launched? When an event occurs on the ports 110 and 2525 with the protocols I specified?

I tried sending emails to/from my mail server that uses POP3 on port 110 and SMTP on port 2525 and never saw any hit to the authorize url. Am I missing another component in my config?

Again, here is my current config:

worker_processes 1;

error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log info;

events {
worker_connections 1;
}

mail {
server_name <my mail server>;
auth_http http://localhost:8080/authorize;

pop3_auth plain apop cram-md5;
pop3_capabilities "LAST" "TOP" "USER" "PIPELINING" "UIDL";

smtp_auth login plain cram-md5;
smtp_capabilities "SIZE 10485760" ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES 8BITMIME DSN;

xclient off;

server {
# SMTP on port 2525 not 25
listen 2525;
protocol smtp;
}
server {
listen 110;
protocol pop3;
# proxy on;
proxy_pass_error_message on;
}
}
