Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Specifies whether mail message import errors are recorded


This parameter can be set to cause the SMTP listener to save the message context exactly as it is received. The message is written to a file in the system Temp directory with a name STXXXXXX.TMP. When a message is saved in the temp file, a line indicating the name of the file will be written to the log.

The value of the parameter controls the saving of messages as follows:

1 - Save all messages that fail to import (parse/save in MAIL.BOX). This setting is useful to trap messages that we fail to accept from other SMTP servers sending mail to this server. It is important to note that only message that result in import errors will be written to a temp file when using this value.
2 - Save all messages that are received at the server.
3 - Save all inbound messages during import, delete all messages that have been successfully received and written into MAIL.BOX. Only messages that fail to be imported into MAIL.BOX will be saved to a temp file.



If you wish to limit which email you will send use the entry SMTPSaveFileFrom= in connection with SMTPSaveImportErrors=3.



This feature can use a great deal of disk space because the saved messages continue to accumulate until you delete them. Also, the content of the messages is accessible to anyone with the privileges to read files in the temporary director
