The domain\wpgate\gwia directory is the GroupWise Internet Agent home directory where Internet Agent configuration files and queue directories are located. The name is established when you install the Internet Agent. The default is wpgate\gwia in the domain directory. You can change the location using the /home startup switch in the Internet Agent configuration file (gwia.cfg).
The Internet Agent uses the 000.prc directory to process messages.
The gwwork directory stores temporary files created by the Internet Agent as it converts and builds messages for transfer across the Internet.
The mmddlog.nnn files hold error and status messages about the functioning of the Internet Agent. The Internet Agent creates a log file each day with a unique name, where mm is the month, dd is the day, and nnn is a sequential number indicating the sequence of log files in a single day. For more information log files, see "Using Internet Agent Log Files" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The acct file contains information about the messages the Internet Agent sends each day. It is e-mailed to the accounts each day at midnight. For more information about the accounting files, see "Setting Up Accounting" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The set file stores Internet Agent console settings such as color, log settings, and so on. For more information, see "Monitoring the Internet Agent through the Server Console".
The stat file stores statistics about the Internet Agent's functioning. For information about the statistics provided by the Internet Agent, see "Statistics" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The proc file is the lock file for the Internet Agent process. The proc file is opened and locked when the Internet Agent starts. This prevents multiple Internet Agents from being started for the same domain.
The pulse.tmp file is re-created by the Internet Agent every time it completes a cycle (after an idle loop). If you are not at the Internet Agent console but need to know if the Internet Agent is running, you can delete the pulse.tmp file. If the Internet Agent is running, it re-creates the file.
The Internet Agent places inbound messages in one of the wpcsin priority subdirectories (0-7). Most messages go in the 4 directory, although some administrative and status messages might go in other directories. The Message Transfer Agent retrieves the messages and delivers them to the proper destinations.
The wpcsout directory is the MTA output queue as well as being the Internet Agent input queue.
The gwixxxx directory is a system-defined directory, where gwi represents the first three letters of the Internet Agent object name as defined during installation and displayed in ConsoleOne, and xxxx is a randomly-generated string. Here, the Message Transfer Agent places outbound messages in the appropriate 0-7 priority subdirectory for the Internet Agent to retrieve and process.
The gwhold directory holds messages that are scheduled for delayed delivery.
The qfiles directory holds messages that cannot be sent during the current Send/Receive cycle. The messages are queued to this directory until the next cycle.
The delayed delivery messages waiting in the qfiles directory remain in encrypted format until the Internet Agent transfers them to the send directory for processing by the SMTP service.
The Internet Agent uses the gwprob directory for messages it cannot process. These are usually messages that have been damaged during transmission or that have the wrong Internet address.
This directory contains conversion tables that the Internet Agent uses to convert message attachments between character sets.
If you reinstall or upgrade the Internet Agent, your old configuration files are copied to the save directory as a backup. If you reinstall or upgrade repeatedly, the files are overwritten each time.
The gwia.cfg file is the Internet Agent configuration file that contains startup switches. Some switches are set during installation. You can set others as needed. For more information, see "Using Internet Agent Startup Switches" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
Only the Windows Internet Agent actually uses the gwia.cfg file under the domain. The NetWare Internet Agent uses the gwia.cfg file created in sys:\system during installation. The Linux Internet Agent uses the gwia.cfg file created in /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/share during installation. On NetWare and Linux, the gwia.cfg file under the domain is just a boilerplate file with no switches set during installation.
The gwauth.cfg file enables the Internet Agent to log in to SMTP hosts that require authentication. For more information, see "Configuring SMTP Host Authentication" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The mimetype.cfg file enables you to customize MIME content-type mappings for various attachment types. For more information, see "Customizing MIME Content-Type Mappings" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide
The exepath.cfg file is used by ConsoleOne to locate the gwia.cfg file. This enables ConsoleOne to write any configuration setting changes to the gwia.cfg file or update Novell® eDirectoryTM with any changes from the file. The file must contain the path to the gwia.cfg file in the sys:\system directory on NetWare, the /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/share directory on Linux, or the domain\wpgate\gwia directory on Windows.
The gwac.db file is the access control database that stores information about the classes of service you have created. For more information, see "Maintaining the Access Control Database" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The preamble.txt file is an ASCII text file that is automatically included with any MIME multipart message and is displayed when the message recipient lacks a MIME-compliant mail reader. For more information, see "Customizing MIME Preamble Text" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The blocked.txt file contains a list of Internet sites that you have added to the Prevent Messages From list for your default class of service in ConsoleOne. For more information, see "Controlling User Access" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The gwia.mib file contains all the Trap, Set, and Get variables used for communication between the Internet Agent and SNMP management consoles. For setup instructions, see "Monitoring the Internet Agent through an SNMP Management Console " in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The gwia directory is the SMTP service (daemon) home directory where messages are converted between GroupWise format and Internet format. On NetWare and Linux, the default location is wpgate/gwia, the same as the Internet Agent home directory. On Windows, the default location is the Internet Agent installation directory. You can change the location using the /dhome startup switch in the Internet Agent configuration file (gwia.cfg).
The Internet Agent SMTP service places outbound messages in the send directory after they have been converted out of GroupWise format into SMTP format. The SMTP service polls the send directory and sends any messages to the destination SMTP host.
The Internet Agent SMTP service places inbound messages in the receive directory, converts them into GroupWise format, and then passes them to the Message Transfer Agent by placing them in the wpcsin directory.
When the Internet Agent SMTP service processes the message, it builds a file, r*.*, in the result directory that contains several lines of comments and SMTP reply codes, which might indicate possible errors or confirm correct transmission. After the Internet Agent SMTP service has completed the transmission with the destination host, it moves another file, s*.* from the send directory to the result directory. The filenames for both files are identical, except for the first letter, which is either "s" or "r". The s*.* file is the converted message file. The SMTP service looks at the "s" and "r" files in the result directory and compares the conversation. If the r*.* file contains the correct (250 OK) SMTP reply codes, the SMTP service deletes the file and sends a transferred status message to the user's Sent Items folder in the GroupWise client.
The defer directory holds messages that are deferred and re-queued according to the Retry Schedule. If the Internet Agent SMTP service receives a temporary error, such as Host Down, it places the message in the defer directory for a specified time, then transfers the file to the send directory for another attempt at sending to the Internet. For more information, see "Configuring Basic SMTP/MIME Settings" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The DSN hold directory stores header information for inbound messages that request delivery status notifications. For more information, see "Using Extended SMTP (ESMTP) Options" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
The help directory holds the help files that you can view from the Internet Agent Web console. See "Monitoring the Internet Agent through the Web Console" in "Internet Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
