Nginx mail proxy

I want to use nginx as a mail proxy.I am new to nginx and need some help
with the configuration, I got some problems.
I want to use Foxmail ,use ngx proxy , this is my configuration.
mail{
#server_name mailProxy;
auth_http localhost:80/php/auth.php;

pop3_capabilities LAST TOP USER PIPELINING UIDL;
pop3_auth plain apop cram-md5;
imap_capabilities IMAP4rev1 UIDPLUS;
smtp_capabilities “SIZE 10485760” ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES 8BITMIME DSN;
smtp_auth login plain cram-md5;

server{
listen 25;
protocol smtp;
}
server{
listen 110;
protocol pop3;
proxy on;
proxy_pass_error_message on;
}

server{
listen 143;
protocol imap;
proxy on;
}
}
and my auth script using PHP as follow:

<?php /* Nginx sends headers as Auth-User: user Auth-Pass: password In php see as HTTP_AUTH_USER HTTP_AUTH_PASS */ if(!isset($_SERVER["HTTP_AUTH_USER"]) || !isset($_SERVER["HTTP_AUTH_PASS"])){ fail(); } $uname = $_SERVER["HTTP_AUTH_USER"]; $upass = $_SERVER["HTTP_AUTH_PASS"]; $protocol = $_SERVER["HTTP_AUTH_PROTOCOL"]; $backend_prot = 110; if($protocol=="imap"){ $backend_prot = 143; } if($protocol=="smtp"){ $backend_prot = 25; } $backend_ip = "*.*.*.*"; //backend ip //auth if(!authuser($uname,$upass)){ fail(); exit; } $server_ip = $backend_ip; pass($server_ip,$backend_prot); function authuser($user,$pass){ //auth return true; } function fail(){ header("Auth-Status:failed"); exit; } function pass($server,$port){ header("Auth-Status:OK"); header("Auth-Server:$server"); header("Auth-Port:$port"); exit; } ?>

But this does not run,when i use telnet test,as follow
telnet 192.168.42.132 25
Trying 192.168.42.132…
Connected to 192.168.42.132.
Escape character is ‘^]’.
220 wack ESMTP ready
auth login
334 VXNlcm5hbWU6
base64(username==)
334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6
base64(password)
451 4.3.2 Internal server error
Connection closed by foreign host.

what’s wrong ,and the error log as follow:

When using SMTP, nginx won’t try to do any authentication against
the backend server, but rather will use XCLIENT command to pass
user credentials, see http://nginx.org/r/xclient. You have to
instruct your SMTP backend to accept XCLIENT from nginx. When
using Postfix, this can be done with
smtpd_authorized_xclient_hosts:

http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.html#smtpd_authorized_xclient_hosts

The SMTP backend is not mine, I use gmail or something else, what should
i
do? Just : “xclient on;” ?

If the backend isn’t your, then nginx mail proxy is a wrong thing
to use.
