Mail sender adapter >> POP server not configured for URL access

Hi Experts,

I have a Mail --> PI --> R/3 scenario and I am configuring the Mail sender adapter for POP3. The issue is that the POP server is not configured to be accessed via a URL and hence the URL pop://hostname/ is causing the following error at runtime:

_1. When I use pop://Fully qualified host name/

_Error: exception caught during processing mail message; java.net.UnknownHostException

_2. When I use pop://IP address of host/

_Error: exception caught during processing mail message; java.net.SocketException: Connection timed out:could be due to invalid address

I am able to ping the POP3 server from the PI server using both the FQDN and IP address.

Can someone please help.

Thanks,

Shobhit

    Hi Shobit,

    Are you able to access the POP server manually using the urls that you have mentioned?

    Hi Shobhit

    Check with these notes:

    804102

    xi 3.0 mail adapter with pop3 user authentication problem

    810238

    XI 3.0 Mail Adapter for POP3 may not report some errors

    also check mailserver security settings ...

    Connection refused occures when XI cannot connect

    in most cases so try checking it again , maybe some ports are not opend on the firewall

    Thanks
