Subject Wrong mail urls produce "silent" exceptions
Date Sat, 23 Nov 2002 16:10:55 GMT

First of all, thanks for James, I've just set up the latest RC for my 
intranet, and I've seen improvements in the ease to set it up. Dunno if 
it's me getting better, or better comments in the config file, anyway it 
too me almost no time to have it running.

Great job! :-)

Anyway, I set up a DB repository just at the beginning of the transport 
stuff, with passthrough, to log all mails.

But I did a wrong thing: my url was "db://maildb/archive"
What happened is that I kept getting the spool get bigger and bigger, as 
the errors were piling on top of each other.
I looked in the logs and the error said that there was something wrong 
with the query to the db, but it wasn't clear. I understood it only when 
rereading the config file comments I understood the terminology, and saw 
that I needed to correct the URL.

A more -on the spot- error message and URL checking would have helped.

Anyway, now it seems to be working well, and I'm using jWebmail as a web 
frontend in Tomcat 4.1... seems to be working ok :-)
