I am trying to create e-mail alert on ssh root login so I had to install ssmtp and mail utility.
Then I configured ssmtp.conf file as follows :
# Config file for sSMTP sendmail # The person who gets all mail for userids < 1000 # Make this empty to disable rewriting. #root=postmaster #Adding email id to receive system information root = firstname.lastname@example.org # The place where the mail goes. The actual machine name is required no # MX records are consulted. Commonly mailhosts are named mail.domain.com #mailhub=mail mailhub = smtp.gmail.com:587 AuthUseremail@example.com AuthPass=plaintext password UseTLS=YES UseSTARTTLS=YES # Where will the mail seem to come from? rewriteDomain=gmail.com # The full hostname hostname = mailserver # Are users allowed to set their own From: address? # YES - Allow the user to specify their own From: address # NO - Use the system generated From: address FromLineOverride=YES
as well as revaliases as follows:
# Format: local_account:outgoing_address:mailhub # Example: root:firstname.lastname@example.org:mailhub.your.domain[:port] root:email@example.com:smtp.gmail.com:25
and I am getting this error:
send-mail: Authorization failed (534 5.7.14 https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?answer=78754 ni5sm3908366pbc.83 - gsmtp) Can't send mail: sendmail process failed with error code 1
but it didn't work. Please help me to sort out this
