Subject RE: MailLogger=OK, task <mail>=SMTPSendFailedException?
Date Fri, 19 May 2006 17:24:53 GMT
If I do the <echoproperties /> task prior to the <mail> task, the
properties echoed are the same property values in the property file.

I'm using the Ant command line argument "-propertyfile" to set the properties.

Silly question:  what happens if you do <echoproperties/> prior to the 
<mail> call?  Do you see your various MailLogger properties set as you 
have them in your properties file?  I am asking because I don't see, 
based upon your example, the line that sets the properties from the 
file...I'm wondering if maybe something isn't set as you expect it to
