OK, so I was using Verizon email for a while, but being dependent on an ISP for email fundementally bothered me (I'm not entirely sure why; it's not like there's any choice where I live), so I'm now slowly switching everything over to Gmail. I tried KB7SQI's MSMTP+Fetchmail tutorial with Gmail the other day (I tried PopOver once and I'm not too sure why, but it didn't really agree with me), and it seemed everything was fine until the time came to send an email. Well, I sent a test message to myself from Mail.app, checked the logs, and found this in /tmp/console.log:

Code:
msmtp: TLS certificate verification failed: certificate signature failure
msmtp: could not send mail (account default from /Users/ejohns/.msmtprc)


I Googled quickly, but I couldn't really find anything more recent than July about Gmail SMTP security issues.

Hey Eric,
Sorry for being "away" for so long, but I just checked to see if I can send email via gmail w/ msmtp & it works fine. Remember to make sure you replace /usr/lib/sendmail in Mail.app preferences to /usr/local/bin/msmtp. Here's my .msmtprc file minus my password. Wink

account default
host smtp.gmail.com
from kb7sqi@gmail.com
tls on
tls_trust_file /Users/kb7sqi/.certs/thawte.pem
auth on
port 587
user kb7sqi@gmail.com
password **********

And here's proof it works. Smile
