Subject: NOT FIXED, Re: MSF won't send; SMTP jobs won't start
As it turns out, the problem wasn't fixed after all.
The customer is running Lotus Notes/Lotus Domino (I don't know the
product, so I'm not sure what's what) on the same box (I didn't quite
catch whether it was running in the same LPAR, but WRKACTJOB shows a
bunch of jobs running under QNOTES).
It seems that during the brief period on Friday afternooon, during which
SMTP was up and running, Lotus was busted, and once they got Lotus back
up and running, they *thought* they also had SMTP up, but there were no
QTSMTPxxxx jobs to be found, and no SMTP showing up in WRKTCPSTS.
Apparently, they're fighting each other.
Question from one of their people: Can MSF (and by extension, the
QtmmSendMail API) use the Lotus SMTP, or does it need the native SMTP?
My question is: Is there some reason why Lotus and the native SMTP would
be fighting with each other?
