What is store and forward?


Store and forward can be used in case your email system is unreachable.  GWAVA will store the message that is sent to the SMTP scanner, and will forward it to the email system as soon as it is available again.  If store and forward is turned off, then the sending email server (trying to send to your domain), will get a connection denied error.

You can enable Store and Forward under Interface settings | Show Optional SMTP settings.

The messages are stored on disk located in the /opt/beginfinite/gwava/services/smtp_mailer/outbound directory.
