Groupwise 6.5 Undeliverable mails.
Posted on 2005-03-22
We have a GW6.5SP4 system.I just want to know where can i find the undeliverable mails?
Our Groupwise server is setup to send oubound mail using a relay server.
To be more specific i want to know if i send a mail to a non-existent or wrong e-mail address, how will i come to know whether the mail is sent or not?
I have already checked the GWIA option to send the undeliverables to postmaster A/C and setup a useras postmaster/operater etc. etc.
I also checked the pages 149/150 of Tay Kratzer's book as suggested by PsiCop in some other relevant question.
Pls suggest something.
Recently i found the following information:
Maximum Number of Hours to Retry a Deferred Message: Specify the number of hours after which the Internet Agent will stop trying to send deferred messages. The default is 96 hours, or four days. A deferred message is any message that couldn't be sent because of a temporary problem (host down, MX record not found, and so forth).
For the first hour of the specified time, the Internet Agent will try resending the message every 20 minutes. After the first hour, it will try resending the message every four hours. For example, if you specify 10 hours, the Internet Agent will try resending the message at 20 minutes, 40 minutes, 1 hour, 5 hours, and 9 hours. After the 10 hours has expired, it will return an undeliverable status to the sender. This setting corresponds with the Internet Agent's /maxdeferhours switch.
I think i will get the undeliverable mail after the system has tired sending it after 96 hours.Is that right?I will try changing the default to say 6 hrs. and find out the answer.
PS: Tell me where can i request for a separate Groupwise Topic Area at EE.
