Is there a way to process previously rejected incoming mail?


(Tobias Eigen) #1

I just discovered a handful of log entries for emails that were not delivered to discourse. This is the error apparently returned to users:

Email can not be processed: Sorry, new users can only put 2 links in a post.

I just changed this setting to 9999 (or should I have left it blank?) to prevent this from happening in the future.

However, now I have all these emails going back a few months that never made it to discourse. Is there a recommended way to process the messages again?

The only way right now is to POST the raw content of the email to /admin/email/handle_mail.

See A) 2.Pushing emails in

Thanks, Régis! Much appreciated. :leaves:

I ended up just using the logs to identify the emails in the pop mailbox and then copying/pasting the text into new messages. Not so many.

Are logs only kept for a month? I only find the errors going back to beginning of April
