Hi

We have a small java module that generates a report from some data and then e-mails it to the User.

We have just recently started getting the following error from our e-mail log.  It appears to have started from a specific date, and it does not happen all the time.

It looks to me as if an expert might well be able to tell us the problem almost immediately??

I am including a sample of a good e-mail log and a bad e-mail log (the bad one is always the same)

Good e-mail log;

Jan 4, 2011 6:04:24 PM iopener.poller.DirectoryPolling run
INFO: Processing file :0241p75kke7a.csv
Jan 4, 2011 6:04:25 PM iopener.GenerateReportCLI readInputFile
INFO: 1 lines are read from the file /home/ippq360/public_html/ippq/ProjectGenerator/ReportGenerator/../ReportCSV/0241p75kke7a.csv
Jan 4, 2011 6:04:25 PM iopener.GenerateReportCLI processFile
INFO: Full version of personal report is generated for USER1
Jan 4, 2011 6:04:26 PM iopener.GenerateReportCLI sendMail
INFO: Emails are sent to recepient(s) : USER1@qwe.com , MANAGER@you.co.uk

Example of error e-mail log;

Thanks so much for the very quick response.

It is weird about the inconsistency.   The SSL certificate should be fine, but I think you are pointing us in the right direction.  We think it might be something to do with some internal Javamail certificates that need setting up or rather re-setting.

I'll let you know the final result as soon as we have sorted it.

Once again, many thanks
