Checking Mail Connector job results

After you have configured a Mail Connector job, you can test the job and check its results to make sure it works correctly. You can test a disabled job as well.

Before you begin, make sure that the Automation Server is running. You can do this by checking the status of the Automation Server icon in the Settings' status bar.

To force a Mail Connector job to run and check its results:

  1. Send a test e-mail message to the mailbox specified in the Mail Connector job. This message must have non-blank Subject and Body fields and may include an attachment.

  2. Go to Services > Automation Server, select the Mail Connector job and click Run on the Module menu. If the command is unavailable, click Refresh to refresh the information.

  3. If the log does not indicate that your test message was processed, check whether the e-mail has reached the intended mailbox. Also, note that if the IMAP4 protocol is chosen, the Mail Connector only processes unread e-mail messages and skips read messages.

  4. In the Alloy Navigator Express Desktop App or Web App, go to the corresponding module and view the created or updated object.
