Re: hMailServer hangs on restarting via a script to reload certificate

Yes that’s what works (see my earlier posts). Net stop throws an error but eventually returns and then net start works.

Re: HOW TO: Ready-To-Go Backup and Cleardown script

Interesting read but I’m wondering if beating the server back into submission has any side effects on data quality or stability.

The question is why does the API to stop hang in the first place?

Try with more than 5 seconds in the wait
It never makes it to the 5 second wait in the script. It just hangs indefinitely at the stop call

Re: hMailServer hangs on restarting via a script to reload certificate

So true to Windows, I did a reboot and for now the batch file seems to be working fine. However the script above is definitely creating an issue and still causing a hang (which then hangs the batch file also). I don't know what's with the script/API but it isn't happy about something which then mess...

Re: hMailServer hangs on restarting via a script to reload certificate

Thanks. I checked and it doesn’t apply here since we are using 2012 R2. Any other thoughts ?

Re: hMailServer hangs on restarting via a script to reload certificate

I checked and there are no SYNC_RCVD connections on hMailServer when this happens. Just one UDP port on hMailServer that’s it.

Re: Step by step LetsEncrypt WinSimple

Thanks for that, it is really helpful.

hMailServer hangs on restarting via a script to reload certificate

I'm using LetsEncrypt to review my certificates which are used by the website server and also by hMailServer. I read on the forum that hMailServer needs to be restarted to reload the new certificates and the best way to do it so to run the following scripts in the task scheduler when letsencrypt is ...

Re: hMailServer hangs after about an hour

Apologies, please ignore my earlier posts, they aren't relevant, I found out why my hMailServer is stopping and will create a separate topic for it. (it to do a a VB script that started hanging recently). You information was very helpful anyways for future reference.

Re: hMailServer hangs after about an hour

Did anyone ever figure this out? I seem to be having a similar issue. My hMailServer on a windows server just seems to hang. It funny because the status page says "Stopping" for some reason. I don't know why it change from running to stopping. The action button is disabled, until I manually restart ...

Re: Ability to sign with DKIM domain aliases too

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but with a relaxed implementation it should be acceptable to use the same DKIM signature for different domains from what I've understood about it and with the appropriate DMARC setup it should still work, it may not be "aligned" but it'll be accepted. Is that co...

I can't see that this would be easily achieved
I don't think you need separate signature. When Google mail does DKIM signing on behalf of other domains it uses it's own key.

Re: DKIM not signing domain alias senders

But isn't DKIM domain dependent, won't you need a separate certificate for each domain name? I believe it is allowed to have it sign multiple domains with a single key. There are two types of DKIM alignments, relaxed and strict. So yes it would be okay to use the same key for all domains in a relax...

Re: DKIM not signing domain alias senders

I too would like to vote for this feature. It's quite challenging that I have two domains being hosted by a single hMailServer instance but only one is getting a DKIM signature. I'm guessing the question is: Would you like hMailServer to DKIM sign alias domains? [poll] - Yes - No [/poll] EDIT: Hmm, ...
