Dekko 2 account settings



  • I am experiencing a problem with creating a new account with custom settings in Dekko. I have no problem entering the account connection information (ingoing IMAP server and port, outgoing SMTP server and port, I enter exactly the same as those on my Android phone), but the account does not get validated. I go to the information verification page, but it immediately switches back to the setting page and does not display the message "Your account has been set up successfully". The inbox is nonetheless created, but it is empty. BTW, is it possible to download email messages manually?

    Another related question: is it possible to add a Microsoft exchange account on Dekko 2?

    You can see the end result (for the config file) in this post:

    Then try it again and have a look at the log.

    I did that, here is my dekkod.conf file:
    [FileLog]
    Enabled=0
    Path=/home/phablet/dekkod.log

    [LogCategories]
    IMAP=1
    Messaging=1
    POP=1
    SMTP=1

    [StdStreamLog]
    Enabled=1

    [Syslog]
    Enabled=0

    And here is dekkod-notify.log:
    dekko.accounts.list: Adding accounts (7) to list
    dekko.accounts.list: Removing accounts (7) from list
    dekko.accounts.list: Adding accounts (8) to list

    The new account inbox is created, but it remains empty. And I don't know how to force email downloads, if it's at all possible.
    The account settings are as shown in the screen shot below.

  • The interesting thing would be the dekkod.log (not the dekkod-notify.log) ^^.
    According to your config the log could be in your home now and should also be in .cache/upstart/dekkod.log.
    (If theres no log yet, you need to restart dekkod by executing restart dekkod or by rebooting the phone.)

    OK. I quitted Dekko2 and then restarted it from the command line as you suggested. Here is the log. (I put only what I guess are the interesting lines, the file is too long)

  • Problem solved. I removed the SSL encryption for both IMAP and SMTP servers, and it now works.

    What about the other question: is it possible to connect to a Microsoft exchange account on Dekko2 ?



  • I connect to Microsofts servers via IMAP and SMTP to read my mails of my company Exchange server. The connect details are:

    imaps://username@company.com@pod51010.outlook.com/INBOX
    smtp://username@company.com@pod51010.outlook.com:587
    


  • @gdegrez mhmm, not using ssl might be a (bad) work around for now, but actually that is working with encryption... but I haven't got an idea what goes wrong there... 😕



  • One has to use in this case STARTTLS.

  • @guru
    I tried to enter the settings from Dekko2's GUI without success. In which file are these settings stored?
    On my Android phone, I noticed that there are no outgoing mail settings for the exchange server. I guess it's because it's the same as the incoming mail server, right?

    An unrelated issue: when I click on "reply to all", the app crashes.

    They are stored in some database files and I found no way to change/add such configs. This is what I would call bad design.

    No, at least the DNS and port could be different.

    Welcome in the club. 😞 You will face more issues (search the forum to be prepared.)



  • @guru said in Dekko 2 account settings:

    Would you know the name of the file? At least, I could see the impact of changes performed with the GUI.

    No, at least the DNS and port could be different.

    Yes, the port is different. In your example, pod51010.outlook.com is the server's internet name, right? and it's the same for both incoming and outgoing servers.



  • The account settings are stored in MazDB files. You can find them by using something like (ofc with your account data):

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ for f in `find .config/dekko2.dekkoproject .local/share/dekko2.dekkoproject -type f` ; do grep guru $f ; done

  • @guru Well, I could find the file for my first identity, but that includes no info on the outgoing and ingoing mail servers. And I couldn't find the files for the 2 other identities.

    No way to set up my account on the exchange server. All attemps unsuccesful 😞



  • I spent some time glancing through the sources but could not find the way the account setup is written.

    It's a pitty that the original developer can not help for whatever reason and no one else is giving a talk or a workshop, for example via webEx, to get others to speed.



  • @guru Maybe you missed this but plans are underway for Dekko2 with a hackathon next weekend https://forums.ubports.com/topic/2645/dekko2-hackathon-one-week-to-go



  • I've heard about it , but did not see any agenda or content. Will this be recorded or live streamed. My problem is, that I have had already compromised my participation in a Ramadama in an association and would need (for me) good reasons to cancel this.



  • For info, seen on gitlab, we can see dekko 2 issues which should be addressed during hackaton :
    For example :
    screenshot20190427_134045182.png



  • Please keep in mind: that doesn't mean all of them will be fixed. Just created a board and suggested some issues. 'Even if we only got a handful finished, I would be happy.' (thx Nicholas for lenting me your words ^^)



  • Apart of fixing certain issues, what IMHO is most necessary is an architecture overview of the dekko processes/threads (as a schema) and of the source tree where's what piece of code. Is this planned?
