8.2 Disabling/Enabling Inbound E-Mail Postings

During installation, you configured Novell Vibe to include an internal SMTP mail host for receiving e-mail postings to folders, as described in Enabling Inbound E-Mail in Basic Installation in theNovell Vibe 3.2 Installation Guide. Your selection during installation carries over into the configuration of your Vibe site. Therefore, you can disable incoming e-mail if necessary, and then enable it again on the Vibe site. Relaying is permanently disabled on the internal SMTP mail host.

  1. Log in to the Vibe site as the Vibe administrator.

  2. Click the Settings icon Configure E-Mail page in the upper right corner of the page, then click the Administration Console icon Configure E-Mail page.

  3. Under System, click Configure E-Mail.

    Configure E-Mail page
  4. Select or deselect Enable Incoming E-Mail Using the Embedded E-Mail Server and Simple URLs.

  5. Click Apply > Close to save the setting.

For information about how to configure folders to receive e-mail postings, see Enabling Folders to Receive Entries through E-Mail in Managing Folders in the Novell Vibe 3.2 Advanced User Guide. Failed e-mail postings are listed in the Tomcat log file. For background information about the Tomcat log file, see Section 26.3.2, Tomcat Log File.
