I am using
aerc 0.2.1. When I try to send message over SMTP with STARTTLS, I get following error:
conn.Auth: 504 5.7.4 Unrecognized authentication type
My account config has smtp-starttls = yes and outgoing = smtp+plain://...... options. I tried with outgoing = smtp://......, but got same result.
I tried another account that uses
smtp.office365.com server with SMTP/STARTTLS setting, the result is the same 504 error.
I dig more into the problem. smtp.office365.com and some Outlook Exchange SMTP servers only accept LOGIN authentication method which is not implemented yet.
Hi! Sorry to open such an old ticket. Cannot get outlook365 to work. The error I get: conn.auth unknown auth method
Have tried smtp:// with smtp-starttls = yes and others too. Since this is the first result in google, it might be a good idea for future reference to include the correct settings.
Many thanks for the effort!!! Thomas
I just managed to configure aerc with multiple Office365 accounts. The IMAP settings work perfectly from the wizard, however here's what I used for the SMTP config:
outgoing = smtp+login://username:email@example.com:587/
smtp-starttls = yes
Notice the smtp protocol, not smtps
