I deleted the external mail account entry on my user record.

Problem solved.

Zentyal Dev Team: there is a problem with external mail fetch. It crashes the Mail component. I submitted several crash reports on it. Let me know if you need more data.

Installation and Upgrades / How do I diagnose MAIL STOPPED

The Mail component has status Stopped. Restart generates a Samba crash report.

Samba is the usual star at any Glitch Party, so where do I start looking for the cause?

Everything else seems to work great. `hostname` resolves to

I'm Linux literate. I can fix a glitchy device driver, but I can't start this mail component.

Ubuntu 14.04.1, Zentyal 3.5 (upgraded - it worked until yesterday afternoon)

Installation and Upgrades / Mail module stopped

On the web-admin Dashboard, the Mail module is shown as "Stopped".

I click the Restart button and eventually get a green status at the top that says the module was successfully restarted. The module still shows "Stopped", but now there's a "Start" button where it was previously "Restart".

Mail has worked before - long enough to configure Outlook to it, and a couple of ActiveSync devices. Then Outlook went "Disconnected".

How do I begin troubleshooting this? /var/log/zentyal/zentyal.log has 4 of the following entries after attempting to start the mail module. Line 43 of zentyal.psgi appears to be a macro call.

Code: [Select]
WARN> zentyal.psgi:43 main::__ANON__ - Use of uninitialized value $dir_path in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/share/perl5/HTML/Mason/ line 117
Restarting "File Sharing..." allows Outlook to connect again.
Researching this indicates that the DCE RPC plugin for Samba is the cause. DCE...  :-\ Who uses that ancient crap? Oh yeah, THEM. Microsloth....

The samba restart produces a crash report which I submitted, although I doubt Zentyal can do much, other than forward it to OpenChange folks.

Anyway, the Mail module still shows up as "Stopped", even though it apparently isn't.
