Dear All,
I installed roundcube on my server as potential replacement for sqwebmail but have trouble sending mail.
Roundmail returns: "SMTP error: Authentication failure: SMTP server does not support authentication". I know that this message states that the called SMTP-server does not respond with: "AUTH" to an: "EHLO". However in the current case this behaviour is intentional since - for security reasons - the server refrains from offering: "AUTH" until a secure (SSL/TLS) connection has been established. As far as I know, this behavioural pattern is called: "AUTH after TLS" and has become quite popular among paranoid system administrators (such as me)...
Now my question: are there any ways to get roundcube to behave accordingly or - since it runs on the same machine anyway - to use a command line application such as: "sendmail" instead?

Works for me. You should add tls:// prefix in smtp_server option.
