14. Queuing Messages
Availability:This feature is only available to registered users.
WindMail can send messages to a queue instead of sending them one by one. The by sending one successful email, the others are told they can be sent.
windmail -q …(Queue Failed Messages)
windmail -z …(Queue All Messages)
Setting up WindMail to queue only failed messages will result in almost normal operation. However, if there is a problem connecting to the Mail Server for some reason the message is sent to a Queue. In some cases, it may take several seconds before WindMail sees there is a problem connecting to the Mail Server. To send queued mail, send one normal message. WindMail will sense that there are Queued messages, and then send them. WindMail keeps track of the flags that were used to call each queued message, so will not lose options you set.
WindMail sends Queued messages to the Temp directory (wherever it is setup on your system). It creates a Q file for each message that is Queued. You can check that directory for Q files, and if there are any you can see you are having a Mail Server problem.
