When trying to post to GMANE, I get an error message:
441 You need a valid email address to post: Invalid response from SMTP server mail.inka.de: 550-Verification failed for firstname.lastname@example.org Couldn’t send message via news: 441 You need a valid email address to post: Invalid response from SMTP server mail.inka.de: 550-Verification failed for email@example.com”
mail.inka.de is the SMTP server of my provider. It looks like
something tries to connect to it with user name
If that is the case, then it’s no surprise that it’s not working.
(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "news.gmane.io")) (setq user-mail-address "firstname.lastname@example.org" message-send-mail-real-function 'smtpmail-send-it message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it smtpmail-smtp-server "mail.inka.de" smtpmail-smtp-service 587 smtpmail-stream-type 'starttls)
Emacs successfully reads my email address from the environment variable
user-mail-address. Sending emails from GNUS works. Why does posting to GMANE not work?
