Injecting .MAI files back into the queues

Post by pootwaddle » Mon Mar 03, 2014 2:40 am

I occasionally have .MAI files that get quarantined or actually moved to a spamtrap account by accident.
What is the best way to re-deliver those .MAI files? I only have the message file, not the envelope file.

Thank you!
Bryan

Hi,

What version of MailEnable you running? If version 8.x then there is a drop folder you can drop the .mai files into, located at:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mail Enable\QUEUES\SMTP\Inbound\Drop

Well, I am running Windows 2008 and don't have a Program Files (x86) folder.

I do have Program Files\Mailenable\QUEUES\SMTP\Inbound\ folder which contains a Messages folder, but not a Drop folder.

Hi,

Right click on Servers > localhost > Services and Connectors > SMTP and select properties. Under the "General" tab do you see in the bottom section and area where the drop folder path is specified? I had forgotten to mention that you have to enable it.

Interesting. Of course, I have had MailEnable for many versions now, but my tree is different than you say, and there isn't a field
for a drop folder on the general tab of the SMTP Properties page.

I have a screen shot I am going to upload.

Thanks!
Bryan

My "services and connectors" menu items are separate - Connectors and later down the tree Services (SMTP is under Connectors, and not Services)
Couldn't upload my screen shot, though.

Hi,

Ensure that your opening the new mmc. Navigate within the MailEnable installation path to the "Admin" folder and double click on the "MailEnableAdmin.msc" file to open the new mmc.

I had no idea there was a new mmc. However, trying to open the new mmc gives me : MMC could not create the snap-in

I even tried run as administrator.
