"Email polling has generated an error" - But Nothing in the Logs


(Yyhmsg) #1

I’ve had no problems with email replies via pop3 gmail setup up to lately. Then today I saw the following error in the dashboard:

Some problems have been found with your installation of Discourse:
Email polling has generated an error in the past 24 hours. Look at the logs for more details.

But I can’t find anything in the logs that seems relevant? Any tips to debug would be helpful.

I did login manually to my replies account and then unfortunately discourse sent replies for every single reply that had ever been sent - even the ones that were sent previously including all private messages. This is where I think there might be a bug in the email reply function in 1.6.0 beta 1, but I don’t know exactly how to go about debugging this…

This is probably just surfacing errors that were already happening.

A recent addition shows these:

You should review your /logs page for your site - if you haven’t already.

Consider waiting 24/48 hours now you have logged into the account to see if the message disappears.

The part about it resending every single email it ever sent was the most concerning to me… Is that just because I have the pop set up to leave a copy on the server? Either way, it seems to me that something like that should never happen. It could kill a large discourse instance.
