Attached patch alice.it pop3 xml (obsolete) — Splinter Review
I can't use http://ispdb.mozillamessaging.com/add/ because there is an alice.it imap configuration.
I try to configure the file manually.

I don't have an alice.it account.
I set smtp port to 587 because I being observed that alice provider in many case (to my friends) can't send mail using port 25.

Can you verify the imap configuration in ispdb too ?
As I can see on Alice-HelpConfig page imap configuration  http://ispdb.mozillamessaging.com/details/175 is right. My only recommendation is to change Outgoing port from 25 to 587 as in comment #0 (user that use alice telecom provider can't send email using port 25)

alice.it.pop3 (v2)

>      <incomingServer type="pop3">
>         <hostname>in.alice.it</hostname>
>         <port>110</port>
>         <socketType>plain</socketType>
>         <username>%EMAILADDRESS%</username>
>         <authentication>plain</authentication>
>      </incomingServer>

Let's do the same incomingServer-in-a-comment thing from email.it.

Thanks,
Blake.

alice.it.imap (v2)

>      <outgoingServer type="smtp">
>         <hostname>out.alice.it</hostname>
>         <port>587</port>
>         <socketType>plain</socketType>
>         <username>%EMAILADDRESS%</username>
>         <authentication>plain</authentication>

So, this outgoing server advertises:
AUTH GSSAPI NTLM LOGIN
which makes me think that we could pick a better auth method than "plain".  But I'm not totally sure.  So I'm going to give it an r+ if you add the POP server in a comment, and pass it off to Ben for the second review.  ;)

Thanks,
Blake.
I don't believe for a second that Alice offers Kerberos for their customers. More likely, the mail server admin had absolutely no clue what he's doing.

For that reason, I'd also ignore NTLM (Windows login scheme).
Waaaaa!

netcat says:
Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service
Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 POP3 server
Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 IMAP4rev1 server

> More likely, the mail server admin had absolutely no clue what he's doing.

Confirmed ;-P

Brutal...
No SSL. No STARTTLS.
POP and IMAP support only plaintext password. Not even AUTH PLAIN, but only the old-style login. No NTLM on POP/IMAP either, so pointless to enable that for SMTP. That's final proof that the mail admin really didn't know what he was doing.

I'll add this to the zoo of "worst ISPs ever". orange.fr held the crown so far.

So, there's no better config.



1.
+ <displayName>Alice Mail</displayName
+ <displayShortName>alice.it</displayShortName>

Please change to:
+ <displayName>Alice Italy</displayName
+ <displayShortName>Alice</displayShortName>

2. Please add the POP config in proper format (like IMAP), but XML commented out (for now - we'll enable it soon), i.e.
<-- <incomingServer type="pop">
...
-->

3.
Aureliano Buendía, did you test this config? In particular, that the full email address needs to be used as username?
Where is the page from the ISP which documents the settings to use? Please add the URL to the file as XML comment.

With that, r=BenB

Yes, it is.

Remove this, unless there's a critical reason for it. We have sane defaults (leave on server for 14 days, then remove).

With that, r=BenB
