Error CAPA

Post by pvh » 2009-01-28 18:21

I am using version 5-B325
Although all seem to be working fine, I get this error in the logfile:

The actual error is the "Received - CAPA" command I think.

Any explanation or idea where this coming from?

Ignore it. Your client tries to use a command which hMailServer does not support.

Thanks martin. In that case I better speak to the Thunderbird people.

Why do you care about it to start with?

Ok, Martin. I am installing and testing hMailserver on my Vista machine. And one or two things are not working. Now before I jump into the "Read the manual" comments on this forum :) , I like to find out myself what is wrong and therefore trying to eliminate everything that says: "error".

I use to run hMailserver on my XP machine without any hassle, but with Vista it is not quite listening to what I am telling it ( lol ).


Rgrds,

The "normal" log will often say "error" even though there is nothing you need to worry about. The fact that there is an error in the communication between two computers doesn't mean that it's something a user needs to care about. A lot of errors are automatically taken care of, just as this one. Often there are "minor" errors such as this one or temporary network problems. As an example, if someone who has connected to your server looses his Internet connection - and thereby his connection to your email server - you'll probably see an "error" in the log, even though that is nothing to worry about.

If an "actual" error occurs which hMailServer detects, a log file named ERROR_<something>.log is placed in the log directory. You can test this for example by stopping the hMailServer service in the Control panel / Administrative tools / Services, renaming the database file / stopping the database server and after that starting the hMailServer service again. When hMailServer fails to connect to the database, a ERROR_<something>.log file will be created which describes the problem. When those error logs are created, you probably want to look into it.

The only way of detecting POP3 EXT support is to issue this command. Thunderbird must check for POP3 EXT support, if account is set to "use tls if possible". It is default setting value.
