Illegal PostOffice Name

Post by willip » Mon Dec 02, 2019 2:22 pm

First install of mailEnable standard. Created postoffice called BMG during install. When I click on the postoffice in the management console and click anything else (create mailbox, etc). I get a popup "Illegal Postoff Name - Postoffice name not allowed: Post Offices"

Hi,

The message is shown if the postoffice name has a space in it. It must be that it is allowing this in the install program. If you have just installed and there are no other postoffices and no data, it is easiest to just delete the contents of the Mail Enable\Config and Mail Enable\Postoffices directories and reinstall. Otherwise to fix you will need to edit the .TAB files in the Mail Enable\Config directory by opening in Notepad, and make sure that "BMG" text in those config files do not have any spaces around them. Tabs are ok, since they will separate the fields in the config files, but there should not be a space around the text. The postoffice directory under the Mail Enable\Postoffices path should be ok though.

Oh, and thanks. So far I've configured one domain/post office and it looks like mailenable will work for our situation.
