Messages in the SMTP receive queue

I have some messages sitting in my smtp receive queue on one of my primary GWIAs. In the old days I could locate these files but now I'm mystified. I know messages would have an x as the first letter in the name indicating it's in transit. I search the file system where I think the files should be and come up blank. What am I missing?

  • Hi,

    You don't say where you were looking... but the "receive" directory is a subdirectory of the GWIA working directory.

    Cheers,
  • Right, thanks Laura. That directory is empty on the host running the GWIA. That's why I asked, the files should be in the folder and all being with the letter x to show that the message is in progress. I thought I looked at it when I shut the gwia down. Seems like the files should be someplace in the filesystem.

    BTW I'm running groupwise-server-18.1.1-133172.x86_64

    Thanks again.

    Yes, and likely 'hiding' in 'plain sight' if we look in the correct
    places. I'd watch the 'receive' directory you expect them to be in
    while the server is running and receiving mail to confirm it is the
    correct place, otherwise you might have to verify where GWIA's home
    directory is.

    What version of the host OS is this running on?
    Perhaps using your OS's file search options to find those files.

  • Please run a gwcheck and see if the Problem persist!

    Thanks for the advice. Sorry to be so long getting back with you, I was out last week on a much needed and faithfully earned vacation.

    This is for a gwia, where are you suggesting I run gwcheck, on the domain?

    sorry for the delay on this end, part life getting in the way part
    trying to figure best way to guide you here. Also wondering about the
    GWCheck on an agent or domain option mentioned Cgreiner

    when was this gwia last restarted? The whole server?
    I have occasionally seen such 'stuck' references go away after one of
    those restarts.

    You could let the server search for the file itself like this
    find / -name x7e5bac5.930

    might take a while depending on what else is on the box, or you cold
    cd to the domain/wpgate/ folder and
    find . -name x7e5bac5.930
