On XP SP2, office 2002. installed Mr. Postman as
service (using the provided batch file), I noted that
although the file worked, and the service was created
and running, the functionality was not occurring.
(outlook was reporting the port was "unable to connect
to pop server"
I am using a different POP SERVER PORT number than the
default (I am using 1111). While trouble shooting this
error, in the wrapper.log file, I found that the log
indicated that the wrapper service was using the
INFO | jvm 1 | 2006/05/26 16:33:13 | May 26, 2006
4:33:13 PM org.mrbook.mrpostman.pop.PopServer <init>
INFO | jvm 1 | 2006/05/26 16:33:13 | INFO:
Starting PopServer on port 11110
I found that If AFTER the service is running, I also
run the .bat file, I get the GUI and Mrpostman works
fine (the gui indicates the correct port number (1111).
I did not have this problem until I switched from w98
to XP, with outlook 2002. (There is a bug in outlook
2002 which only allows a 4 digit POP port number which
required me to change from the standard port.)
