E61, Putty, vim and the escape key
March 5th, 2008 :: Permalink

Since the E61i has no escape key using vim is a rather interesting ordeal. I could send an escape key by pressing ctrl-chr, releasing ctrl, pressing chr again and select the opening braket.

Update The green key is also mapped to ESC ;) .

Nokia E61i and exim4
February 29th, 2008 :: Permalink

Debian’s exim4 uses gnutls which has a feature that will not allow my E61i to use STARTTLS (see #438137) . Perhaps stunnel can help here …

Update: To advertise PLAIN authentication with exim4 for connections origination from localhost I used the following statement in my plaintext authentication configuration (broken into several lines for better readability):

server_advertise_condition =
 ${if or
  {
   {!eq{$tls_cipher}{}
  }
  {
   eq{$interface_address}{127.0.0.1}}
  }
  {yes}{no}
 }

That way plaintext auhentication is allowed for TLS sessions or unencrypted sessions originating from localhost.

Using stunnel and a default ssmtp configuration I can now send mails from my mobile phone.

Nokia E61i and Certificates
February 26th, 2008 :: Permalink

Since I use a self signed certificate on my IMAP Server, my new E61i is complaining about an invalid certificate. I added the CA to my mobile by converting it to an x509 DER:

openssl x509 -outform der -in ca.pem -out ca.der

transfering the new file to the phone and opening it with the file manager.
