Administrative messages are not flowing properly
Administrative messages do not flow to the post office database.
Error:  Object needs to be synchronized: DB20
Error:  D506
There is a domain database (WPDOMAIN.DB) in the post office directory or vice versa.  The POA or MTA would attempt to update the wrong database.


Insure that the domain and post office directory do not contain a WPDOMAIN.DB and a WPHOST.DB.  This has been known to cause some very strange issues.  The domain directory will contain a WPDOMAIN.DB but should not contain a WPHOST.DB and vice versa.
