Subject Re: James Server SMTP Spooling Issue

Hi Ajay

Firstly, you are not alone. While I have not experienced an issue with 
the outgoing queue I have had issues with the incoming.

In my case the class org.apache.james.queue.jms.JMSMailQueue handles 
retrieving mail from the incoming spool, however despite the routine 
checking the queue every ten seconds the mail item can remain stuck in 
the spool until another email is sent which pushes the stuck item out of 
the queue. So far I have not discovered what causes this blockage in the 
queue to occur or disappear as sending another email while it pushes the 
blockage out results in the new email being stuck in the queue.

What you may find useful is raising the log level on activemq - *without 
restarting james*. Connect up jvisualvm/jconsole to dynamically reload 
the log4j config for activemq. MBean of interest - 
org.apache.activemq.james.Broker, Operation reloadLog4jProperties.

When a blockage is discovered changing the number of spool threads, 
delivery threads etc seems to at times help. But this may just be 
because you're stopping and restarting the server and not due to the 
configuration change.

I am interested to hear how this goes for you as I'm in a similar 
situation and the issues may well be related.
