bug#35682: 27.0.50; Weird failure to authenticate in smtpmail


From: Stefan Monnier
Subject: bug#35682: 27.0.50; Weird failure to authenticate in smtpmail
Date: Fri, 10 May 2019 19:26:42 -0400

Package: Emacs
Version: 27.0.50


Recently my SMTP server was updated and I started to get authentication
errors when sending email.  More specifically, when sending from
message-mode, I get the following error:

    Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Sending failed: 453 4.7.1 
<address@hidden>: Sender address rejected: not logged in")
      signal(error ("Sending failed: 453 4.7.1 <address@hidden>: Sender address 
rejected: not logged in"))
      error("Sending failed: 453 4.7.1 <address@hidden>: Sender address 
rejected: not logged in")
      smtpmail-send-it()
      message-smtpmail-send-it()
      message-multi-smtp-send-mail()
      message-send-mail(nil)
      message-send-via-mail(nil)
      message-send(nil)
      message-send-and-exit(nil)
      funcall-interactively(message-send-and-exit nil)
      call-interactively(message-send-and-exit nil nil)
      command-execute(message-send-and-exit)

My smtpmail-related settings are:

    (setq send-mail-function #'smtpmail-send-it)
    (setq smtpmail-smtp-service 587)
    (setq smtpmail-smtp-server <mailserver>)
    (setq smtpmail-smtp-user "address@hidden")

and until recently this worked fine, prompting me for a password and
authenticating with it.  But now, I don't get prompted for a password
any more.

I can work around the problem with the patch below, but I have no idea
what other undesired effects it should have.  Apparently the code
catches the error 530 and treats it as a request to perform
authentication, so maybe the origin of the problem is that the mail
server now returns 453 instead of 530?  Should Emacs handle 453 like it
handles 530?  Should I report the problem to my SMTP admin instead?
