[pskmail] Re: Error with wrong email address, FIXED

When you send an email from the outbox, 2 things happen:
* you start a file upload from the outbox (xxxyyy)
* the client registers the upoad as a transaction tagged xxxyyy

As soon as the server confirms complete reception of the file it sends a
 '~FAxxxyyy' and the transaction tag as well as the file are deleted (a copy of the text is kept in 'Sentmail').

In case the upload is broken, the file as well as the tag is stored, to enable the resume function.

When you just manually delete the file from the outbox, the transaction remains active,
and the client will try to resume the upload. In ythat case there is no file, so it is broken again.

To stop the vicious circle you use the File->clear commands to delete the transaction as well as the file.

Hope this helps,

Hi John,
that worked.
We cleared:
and now everything works normally.
I want to understand what was the problem. E-mail is compressed and changed to file, that is sitting in "upload" and that was the reason why clearing Outbox did not helped. Correct??
Thanks like always

Hi Robert,

No problems. Let us know how that went.

Otherwise I get some pretty nice fragments of the connections with your server here (on 20M I suspect).

I should have written " it does NOT transmit the FA command"..

Hi Robert,
From the >FM: transaction it looks like a re-start of an uncompleted email transfer (could be due to the previous email address error...we need to look at this situation).

I would, in the client, perform a file/clear/uploads and file/clear/downloads.
I suspect that, because the server can't send the email, it does transmit the FA command telling the client to delete the temporary file, and therefore the client will try to re-send it every time he does a SEND.
Hope that resolves the issue.

Any idea how to eliminate this error??

He can not send any emails now. Receiving email is not a problem, only sending is giving that error.

So far I advised him to erase everything from Outbox , any idea what next we can do to correct this ??
