E-mail message is undeliverable after
This option indicates the number of days, hours or attempts after which
the program will decide that a message cannot be sent and delete it from
the Outbox. After that, depending on other settings, it can inform the
message sender about the problem.
If the server is always active, the recommended setting is 4 days. If
you only use the program occasionally, you will probably want to set the
expiration for messages in the Outbox folder to, for example, 10 retries.
Force message delivery
If this option is activated, the program will attempt during the sending
process to deliver the message to all server addresses it obtained from
the DNS server. Messages directed to certain e-mail addresses can only
be sent to one server, while with some e-mail addresses PostCast Server
can detect several different server addresses. If the delivery to the
top priority server on the list fails, the program will attempt to deliver
the message to other servers. This option only insignificantly slows down
the sending process, but it increases the percentage of the successfully
Return undeliverable message to the sender
When a message is marked as undeliverable, the program will notify the
sender about the problem.
Attach original message
If you activate the "Attach original message" option, the program will
attach the undeliverable original message to the error message.
Create log files
When this option is activated, the program records all communication
with the servers during the sending process in the text file. If an error
occurs during sending, its cause can be easily detected by examining the
log file. You can choose how would you like the program to create log
files. There are three options:
- Use single log file.
The program creates a single file and logs all actions to that file. Be
aware that if you send a large number of messages, the file can become
very large over time.
- Create new file when
log is larger than... The program creates a new file after the current
log exceeds certain size.
- Create separate log
file for each mailing. For each sending process, the program creates
a separate log file. This option can create a large number of files over
time that will be difficult to administrate.
Delete logs older than
This means that when you enter the number of days, all log files older
than that number will be automatically deleted. If you often send a large
number of messages, log files can be rather big and occupy quite a lot
of space on the hard disk. Using this option, the outdated files will
be deleted and the space they occupied restored.
Log client-server communication
Edition is able to log all communication between the e-mail client
and PostCast Server. This log is useful for troubleshooting problems with
the client connection to the server. The file is placed in the Logs folder
and it is accessible from the drop-down list on the main menu. Do not
leave this option selected unless you want to troubleshoot the connection
with the e-mail client. It slows down communication with the client and
the log file can use a lot of hard drive space over time.
Delete all logs
Deletes all logs from the Logs folder.
View existing log files
This option enables you to view a particular log file. By clicking on
the "View" button next to this option, you get three possibilities:
- Show entire log file.
Shows the entire log file including the communication of each thread
- Show each thread in
a separate window. Shows the communication of each thread in a separate
- Show specific thread.
You can choose to view the communication of just one thread
