Subject James Endless loop bringing machine down
Date Sat, 24 Nov 2001 14:37:04 GMT
I now use james 2.01a (the binary that can be found on the website).

For some reason the non-existence of a specific SMTP host makes this
remotedelivery relaunch itself and repeat endlessly (When started, the
James.Mailet.log would fill about 150mb log in a few minutes). I can't
believe this is just because the smtp host is down.. there must be something
else?

You can find the full log here... which is basically the snippet below
repeated a million times (note that this doesn't contain the line where it
all started since I had to reboot my machine to be able to access it again
through SSH. I just relaunched and I had this result. Of course deleting the
mail that was causing this problem brought all back to normal. I think there
should definitely be a system to avoid any mail processing to enter an
infinite loop. Isn't there a way to limit the number of times an email tries
to get processed?
