Outbound mail engine errors


I'm having problems on our Dev server with outbound mail.  I have run through all the documentation and advise that I could find regarding the set up and compared the relevant config files containing the encryted password for SA account with the Live system and everything looks as it should.


However I cannot start the tray icon for the mail engine and when I stop and start the service (separately and not both running) it takes a long time.  One of the errors is regarding log on:


TPS : Mail Outbound Failed To Logon


Another error is :


Application: Touchpaper.Service.Mail.Outbound.SystemTray.exe
Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.Exception Info: System.ObjectDisposedExceptionStack:   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.CreateHandle()

at System.Windows.Forms.Application.Run(System.Windows.Forms.Form)
   at Touchpaper.Service.Mail.Outbound.SystemTray.OutboundSystemTray.Main(


and a "Failed to stop service" error:


Failed to stop service. System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at Touchpaper.Service.Mail.Outbound.WindowsService.OutboundMailService.OnStop()
   at System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase.DeferredStop()



Can anyone shed any light on this please? (BTW the password in the config files for Dev & Live are the same - live is working!)


Thanks in advance.

    Re: Oubound mail engine errors

    The one thing I noticed about this is that on your Dev environment, you're using the system tray icons rather than the service. Are you using the service in live?


    if you try and use the service in Dev is it ok? I ask because I suspect the issue is that the login credentials have not been correctly updated for the system tray config files.


    Hope that make some kind of sense?
