Problem saving attachment using TIDPop3 component (cannot save attachment)
Posted on 2004-11-25
I adapted a program to run as a service that retrieves mails using a TIDPop3 component, save attached excel sheets, and do some processing on the contained data. I tested it on a W2K workstation and WinXP PC, without a problem. But when I installed it on W2K server PC, I got the error message that the attachment cannot be saved. The component can retrieve the email message without a problem, but fails to store the attached excel sheet.
First I thought about security settings, the service uses the Local System account. (Note: the service is not interactive with the desktop and has no dependencies). But then the services keeps a log of the performed actions, and the logfile is stored in the same directory where the attachments have to be stored. (There is enough diskspace available of course. I even tried to save the file on a network drive, but that didn't work either.)
Is there a way to get more diagnostic info from the component itself, f.i. what the actual reason is why the file cannot be saved? And does anybody have idea why in a specific case the saving of an attachment wouldn't work.
Thanks in advance,
