SMTP Failures Not Fireing Event
Problem reported by Ben Santiardo - 8/4/2015 at 5:30 AM
Submitted
I setup a Global Event of type [SMTP Delivery Failed] and I set it to use the "Default Notification Profile" which is simply a Reminder.
 
Strangely, I am having a problem with sending E-Mails generated from Events. The Auto-Response works fine and replies to tickets works fine. But when an event fires that generates an E-Mail is gets stuck in the spool. The SMTP Log says:
     Delivery Failed For [Path To EML File]
 
But then I also don't get a "Reminder" informing me that SMTP Delivery Failed as I expected by the Global Event that I setup, so I never know that these E-Mails are stuck in the spool unless I manually check it.
 
Any advice?

Hello Ben,
Hmm... I'll test this locally here and inform you of the results but i need more info in order to be able to test.

What version of SmarterTrack?
Can you give me the exact setup for the event?
Is it a global event or just your personal event (sometimes this matters)

EDIT: Just realized you allready did mention the event type. Im going to test this in 11x and tell you my results.

Also, if you want to remove the personal information from the message. I could take a look at the message to help diagnose the problem of why its not sending if you don't mind posting it. It is curious your reminder didn't work though.

So i see that delivery failed wont trigger if it was a connection error (this is just one case, there may be others). I am not sure if this is by design but try making an event for connection failed and see if its triggering? Make sure you are logged in as an admin as well.

if the above is not the case, and you did not get a reminder for connection failed. Another thing that could make it easier for me to diagnose this is if you have access to your log files SmarterTrack.MRS\App_Data\Logs\smtp.logs and check for errors or failures in there so that we can find more details on why the message failed to send.
