I have RedHat 9 and I’ve followed the ‘Gmail on Home Linux Box using Postfix and Fetchmail” instructions with what I thought was great success. (I didn’t see any errors through the process)  I’ve got the fetchmail piece working just fine, but I just can’t seem to find what I’ve done wrong with the postfix config.  I’ve search google for the error below  and got some hits but no answers that fixed my problem.  You can see the errorlog below.

Postfix Error: 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first

My Network Arch
lnxsrv01.domain01.sw(RH9, Postfix) --> Cisco Firewall--> INTERNET-->smtp.google.com

Can you point me in a direction to figure out what is causing this.

Thanks for your help
Dave

Not to confuse the issue but I was doing some trouble shooting by taking postfix out of the equation by using the openssl s_client command and I get the following error message from smtp.gmail.com . 502 5.5.1 Unrecognized command after the STARTTLS has been issued which results in SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol:s23_clnt.c:601  Does this help?
