SES configuration not working in 1.1.2



  • @mikeyapina
    make sure the rest 3 parameter are added below the Mail_Encryption parameter as shown below
    MAIL_DRIVER=smtp
    MAIL_HOST=smtp.mailtrap.io
    MAIL_PORT=2525
    MAIL_USERNAME=
    MAIL_PASSWORD=
    MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    MAIL_FROM_NAME=admin

    Also kindly fix the MAIL_FROM_NAME key value, it should not contain the mail id. it will accept the name as shown above.

    once done run the commands
    php artisan config:cache



  • @Vaishali-Agarwal WE WERE STILL GET SAME ERROR. AWS FEELS THAT MAKING A CONNECTION TO THE SERVER BUT the credentials or endpoint is wrongly configured here is my env

    I have verified the correctness with SMTP endpoints and credentials with AWS so we feel that is working ..

  • @Vaishali-Agarwal from AWS

    We saw that there was no connectivity issue from your EC2 instance to SES as you were getting 250 Ok response when running telnet and openssl commands.
    We then checked your application and suspected that the credentials configured might be incorrect. So, we took those credentials and generated a base64 encoded of both and and tried sending an email using openssl command which failed.

    We also know that when you generated the the new credentials and used it to send a test mail with openssl, it worked fine for you which we can also verify from the successful mail(Message ID: 0101017408a72c3c-5c80c957-f75f-4298-a15d-f7b1151f7918) that you sent earlier on 2020-08-19 21:36:47 UTC.

    This points to the fact that the test mail that was failing earlier with openssl was due to some issue with incorrect credentials and not a connectivity issue on the SES smtp endpoint.

    After confirming the issue with the old credentials, we then generated a new set of credentials and replaced them with the old one in your application but the application was still not able to send emails. Since, from SES perspective connectivity and credentials are correct, it seems that the issue you have been facing is on the application end and there is some configuration that needs to be changed on the application side.

    I would request you to please reach out to the Application support for further insight into this.

    We are glad to know that you are happy with the follow up. If you face any other difficulties in future, please feel free to reach to AWS Support.



  • @mikeyapina I decided to try some addtional tests. I got a un/pw that had no special characters and went thru the test again. Doing email through the CLI worked. Doing a subscription from the landing page footer gave me this error below.

    Observation --- The mail logs below shows the scripte makes it to SES but then gets a failure due to user unknown error. Although when we execute it from the cli with the same user there are no issues and the email sends.

  • @mikeyapina

    ok I am getting a new error tried some different things and can both send email at the CLI as well as it appears everything is connecting as before. What I wanted to do was find a un/pw with no weird characters -- then I cleared everything and slowly tested everything .. I believe I have a good setup now suing this scenario now I am getting an error for AWS

    From this error ---

    [2020-08-21 15:19:07] local.ERROR: Region must be a valid RFC host label. {"exception":"[object] (Aws\Exception\InvalidRegionException(code: 0): Region must be a valid RFC host label. at /var/www/html/bagisto/vendor/aws/aws-sdk-php/src/ClientResolver.php:543)
    [stacktrace]

    I found this script inside the pointing to error files

            // Check region is a valid host label when it is being used to
            // generate an endpoint
            if (!self::isValidRegion($args['region'])) {
                throw new InvalidRegionException('Region must be a valid RFC'
                    . ' host label.');
            }


  • What I have figured out about the setting driver -- if I set it to SES I get results in the laravel.log file in storage. If I set it to SMTP I am able to see the errors in the SMTP mail.log file.

    These are the issues in summary:

    SES setting:

    I am getting:

  • @mikeyapina said in SES configuration not working in 1.1.2:

    ses

    There appears to be a mix-match of credentials when the application is sending them to the end-point. Are you wrapping it with something? Ar you escaping it?

    The SES SMTP relies on base-64 encoding. If it is not doing a conversion to base-64 we will get an authentication issue with SES.



  • i guess we have to do something like this to the code being sent to SES (username/password> where do we do this? I believe when we send it to AWS SES but where?

    $message->embedData(base64_decode($data['photos'][$x]), 'Blah')

    The above came from the internet describing what to do with a different issue.



  • @mikeyapina

    this is the message from AWS
    As discussed on call, the issue we are suspecting is that your application might not be encoding the SES SMTP credentials which is why we might be seeing 530 Authentication Error. You would be following up with the application vendor regarding this. Also, if you would like we would be happy to jump on a call with your vendor to discuss this further. Please do let us know



  • Hi @mikeyapina

    Bagisto is basically created on Laravel, a PHP framework, and its support Amazon SES SMTP.

    I think, might be, it is a problem of configuration due to which we are getting this issue. Kindly make sure it is configured correctly.

    You can follow this one for configuartion - https://medium.com/@martin.riedweg/configure-amazon-ses-on-laravel-5-8-in-5-minutes-764c30df6399

    Thanks



  • @rahul please read my messages from AWS .. it is clear you have not. The exact article I implemented before sending messages to you. Before engaging AWS SES. This is not the issue. Let me state this clearly. This is not the issue.

    The issue is clear! please listen to this time. AWS SES requires base64 translations of its passwords in order to work. Because you do not want to listen to me let me state it again. YOU HAVE TO USE BASE64 WHEN PASSING UN/PW to AMAZON SES.

    Please do I need to say it now for the 6th time!

    I can communicate from the command line I just cannot communicate using your scripts .. because it isn't properly sending it encoded in base64.



  • @mikeyapina so what I am hearing is since you guys will not fix this issue I have to create up a traditional not very reliable smtp server as the only solution?



  • @mikeyapina
    you may create ticket to our support team https://bagisto.uvdesk.com/en/customer/create-ticket/ as we can't check with out having all the privilege.. kindly raise the ticket in the provided link or share your server FTP/SFTP credentials along with SES credentials.
