Subject Sendmail action won't use the smtphost I assign
Date Thu, 08 Jul 2004 13:48:58 GMT
Hi there,

I'm trying to send an automated mail reply as part of a webapp I'm currently developing. I'm
using cocoon 2.1.5 and tomcat 4.1.3. I've placed the mail.jar and activation.jar in the WEB-INF/lib
dir of my webapp.

I'm using the following matcher to test sending mail:

<map:match pattern="testSendmail">
    <map:act type="sendmail">
        <map:parameter name="smtphost" value=""/>
        <map:parameter name="from" value="[valid email address]"/>
        <map:parameter name="to" value="[valid email address]"/>
        <map:parameter name="subject" value="Cocoon sendmail testmessage"/>
        <map:parameter name="body" value="Test text"/>
        <!-- -->
        <map:read src="content/succes.html" mime-type="text/html"/>
    <map:read src="content/failure.html" mime-type="text/html"/>

Sadly I alway see the failure page. Looking in sitemap.log I found the following (I marked
the lines of interest with [***]):

It seems that eventhough the action is aware of the smtp server I assign, the underlying mail
component isn't.
Anyone got any idea what (if anything) I am missing here?
