NTLM authentication for SMTP?

Added by Kirpal Sukumar at 2012-04-03 03:09 pm

Good morning,

I'm trying to enable email integration in ChiliProject, and have run across this hurdle.

Unfortunately, my organization's exchange server will only accept NTLM authentication for SMTP traffic (vs. plain or login, which are built in to Chili). I've tried several different methods of enabling it, but have finally run out of ideas.

I'm currently using Chiliproject 2.5.0, but will be moving to 3.x fairly soon.

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Disclaimer: I have not tried it myself and don't know for sure if it works...

There is a gem which might do that for you. Please add the following line to your Gemfile.local (create it if it does not exist yet). Then run bundle install to install the gem.

gem 'ruby-ntlm', :require => 'ntlm/smtp'

Now you can use

authentication: :ntlm
in your configuration.yml.

Thanks for the help, Holger.

I'm still unable to get mail delivery working, however. After enabling e-mail logging, this is what i get in my production log:

Processing AdminController#test_email (for XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX at 2012-04-09 11:23:48) [GET]
  Parameters: {"controller"=>"admin", "action"=>"test_email"}
Sending email notification to: 
Redirected to http://server:3000/settings/edit?tab=notifications
Completed in 9ms (DB: 0) | 302 Found [http://server/admin/test_email]

I'm including the configuration block I'm using below:

    delivery_method: :smtp
      address: "" 
      port: 25
      domain: ''
      authentication: :ntlm
      user_name: "XXX\\XXXXXXXX" 
      password: "XXXXXX" 

Anything come to mind? As far as I can tell from the Settings page, Chili seems to believe that everything is configured properly, and yet I get none of the mailings.

This is probably a duplicate of #824 and #762: Make sure that your email settings (for the destination address/account) is unchecked for "I don't want to be notified of changes that I make myself."

...and that solved it. Thanks!
