Can't create a post office mailbox

Post by project3e » Mon May 02, 2005 12:11 am

I have tried the following, however, I keep getting this error: Error creating mailbox: File not found: MEAIPO.DLL. Here's what I have tried:

1. re-registering all DLL's via meinstaller.exe
2. uninstalling and reinstalling mailenable pro (latest version)

During the installation, it acts like it's creating the postoffice mailbox, however, it doesn't show up in the mailenable pro MMC at all.

On top of this, in the diagnosis page, I show this fail:

AMailEnable WebMail Provider Test (Address Map) error: (-2147352567) Exception occurred. Fail

And this warning:


Management Service (None) Status: Service Not Installed Warn

I am at my wits end, I've searched and applied all the options in this forum. This is a new install and it's not working!

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Have you tried manually running the CACLS command on the Mailenable folders?

CACLS "C:\Program Files\Mail Enable\Config" /t /e /g IME_ADMIN:F
CACLS "C:\Program Files\Mail Enable\Queues" /t /e /g IME_ADMIN:F
CACLS "C:\Program Files\Mail Enable\Postoffices" /t /e /g IME_ADMIN:F

More information on permissions can be found in this KB article:

where is CACLS?

I'd run it, but where exactly do I find the CACLS executable file?? I did a search on my windows 2003 server and it didn't show up anywhere.

I ran the meInstaller.exe utility 'Common Installation (file permissions)" and it did not fix the problem.

ANY MORE IDEAS??

Hi,

The CACLS commands are commands to be entered at a DOS command prompt. Copy and paste the commands I mentioned in my earlier post, changing the paths to point to your path configuration.

Tried the CACLS commands, still not working

Post by project3e » Tue May 03, 2005 1:25 pm

Well, that didnt' work either, unfortunately. What else can I try?

** Funny thing is that even though no POST OFFICES show, the one I created during installation is showing in the mailenable repository folder.

Another issue that I just came upon:
Here's the error I get when I am in the mailenable pro MMC and click on filters:

Error displaying filter list: File not Found: MEAIMF.DLL

***Finally, to use CACLS, I had to specify the path: c:\windows\system32\cacls, which tells me it's not in the operating system's command path.

"File not Found: MEAIMF.DLL "

Any errors where MailEnable cannot DLLs would mean that your Windows PATH environment variable is not valid or has "issues".

You should review what the PATH environment variable is set to and make sure that the MailEnable BIN directory is in it.

eg: type the following from the command line:

echo %PATH%

Make sure all paths listed are valid.

Path Variables: Key to problem: ANSWER FOUND!

Post by project3e » Tue May 03, 2005 3:34 pm

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>echo %path%

C:\PHP;"C:\PROGRA~1\MAILEN~1\BIN;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\Syste
m32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\BINN;C:\Program Files\My
SQL\MySQL Server 4.1\bin;C:\Program Files\OpenSSH\bin


I found it! It was a rogue ", in the path! Incredible, how did it get there? Did this happen in the installation?

Thank You to the MailEnable user who helped me!
