Overview

This is a protocol handler for the server side of SMTP. It's NOT a complete SMTP server obeying all the semantics of servers conforming to RFC2821. Rather, it uses overridable method stubs to communicate protocol states and data to user code. User code is responsible for doing the right things with the data in order to get complete and correct SMTP server behavior.

Simple SMTP server example:

class EmailServer < EM::P::SmtpServer def receive_plain_auth(user, pass)

 true

end

def get_server_domain

 "mock.smtp.server.local"

end

def get_server_greeting

 "mock smtp server greets you with impunity"

end

def receive_sender(sender)

 current.sender = sender
 true

end

def receive_recipient(recipient)

 current.recipient = recipient
 true

end

def receive_message

 current.received = true
 current.completed_at = Time.now

 p [:received_email, current]
 @current = OpenStruct.new
 true

end

def receive_ehlo_domain(domain)

 @ehlo_domain = domain
 true

end

def receive_data_command

 current.data = ""
 true

end

def receive_data_chunk(data)

 current.data << data.join("\n")
 true

end

def receive_transaction

 if @ehlo_domain
   current.ehlo_domain = @ehlo_domain
   @ehlo_domain = nil
 end
 true

end

def current

 @current ||= OpenStruct.new

end

def self.start(host = 'localhost', port = 1025)

 require 'ostruct'
 @server = EM.start_server host, port, self

end

def self.stop

 if @server
   EM.stop_server @server
   @server = nil
 end

end

def self.running?

 !!@server

end end

EM.run{ EmailServer.start }

-- Useful paragraphs in RFC-2821: 4.3.2: Concise list of command-reply sequences, in essence a text representation of the command state-machine.

STARTTLS is defined in RFC2487. Observe that there are important rules governing whether a publicly-referenced server (meaning one whose Internet address appears in public MX records) may require the non-optional use of TLS. Non-optional TLS does not apply to EHLO, NOOP, QUIT or STARTTLS.

@@parms =

Class variable containing default parameters that can be overridden in application code. Individual objects of this class will make an instance-local copy of the class variable, so that they can be reconfigured on a per-instance basis.

Chunksize is the number of data lines we'll buffer before sending them to the application. TODO, make this user-configurable.

- (Object) post_init

In SMTP, the server talks first. But by a (perhaps flawed) axiom in EM,

post_init will execute BEFORE the block passed to #start_server, for any

given accepted connection. Since in this class we'll probably be getting a lot of initialization parameters, we want the guts of post_init to run AFTER the application has initialized the connection object. So we use a spawn to schedule the post_init to run later. It's a little weird, I admit. A reasonable alternative would be to set parameters as a class variable and to do that before accepting any connections.

OBSOLETE, now we have @@parms. But the spawn is nice to keep as an illustration.

- (Object) process_data_line(ln)

Send the incoming data to the application one chunk at a time, rather than one line at a time. That lets the application be a little more flexible about storing to disk, etc. Since we clear the chunk array every time we submit it, the caller needs to be aware to do things like dup it if he wants to keep it around across calls.

DON'T reset the transaction upon disposition of the incoming message. This means another DATA command can be accepted with the same sender and recipients. If the client wants to reset, he can call RSET. Not sure whether the standard requires a transaction-reset at this point, but it appears not to.

User-written code can return a Deferrable as a response from receive_message.

- (Object) process_ehlo(domain)

-- EHLO/HELO is always legal, per the standard. On success it always clears buffers and initiates a mail "transaction." Which means that a MAIL FROM must follow.

Per the standard, an EHLO/HELO or a RSET "initiates" an email transaction. Thereafter, MAIL FROM must be received before RCPT TO, before DATA. Not sure what this specific ordering achieves semantically, but it does make it easier to implement. We also support user-specified requirements for STARTTLS and AUTH. We make it impossible to proceed to MAIL FROM without fulfilling tls and/or auth, if the user specified either or both as required. We need to check the extension standard for auth to see if a credential is discarded after a RSET along with all the rest of the state. We'll behave as if it is. Now clearly, we can't discard tls after its been negotiated without dropping the connection, so that flag doesn't get cleared.

-- Requiring TLS is touchy, cf RFC2784. Requiring AUTH seems to be much more reasonable. We don't currently support any notion of deriving an authentication from the TLS negotiation, although that would certainly be reasonable. We DON'T allow MAIL FROM to be given twice. We DON'T enforce all the various rules for validating the sender or the reverse-path (like whether it should be null), and notifying the reverse path in case of delivery problems. All of that is left to the calling application.

We might want to make sure that a given recipient is only seen once, but for now we'll let that be the user's problem.

- (Object) receive_sender(sender)

Receives the argument of the MAIL FROM command. Return false to indicate to the remote client that the sender is not accepted. This can only be successfully called once per transaction.

This is called when the protocol state is reset. It happens when the remote client calls EHLO/HELO or RSET.

- (Object) reset_protocol_state

-- This is called at several points to restore the protocol state to a pre-transaction state. In essence, we "forget" having seen any valid command except EHLO and STARTTLS. We also have to callback user code, in case they're keeping track of senders, recipients, and whatnot.

We try to follow the convention of avoiding the verb "receive" for internal method names except receive_line (which we inherit), and using only receive_xxx for user-overridable stubs.

init_protocol_state is called when we initialize the connection as well as during reset_protocol_state. It does NOT call the user override method. This enables us to promise the users that they won't see the overridable fire except after EHLO and RSET, and after a message has been received. Although the latter may be wrong. The standard may allow multiple DATA segments with the same set of senders and recipients.
