Apache James Gateway question
Well, I've finally got my cloud up and running (ubuntu 10.10). Now I'm trying to get mail going. Is anyone here familiar with Apache James?
As far as my setup, I've got a box that will be going to a hosting center. That box is running two separate machines (1 primary gateway, 1 redundant gateway) with maverick server, apache james, clamAV, cleanmail, and spamassasin. That box needs to filter, collect and cue up my emails in case my local gateway is down. If everything is working correctly, it should forward the email to my local gateway, which is only running maverick server, httpd, and james. This box is intended to dole out the emails to the appropriate instance on the cloud and cue up email if an instance is down. Finally, I have james running on each instance in order to receive emails for that particular group. I know it's all a little redundant, but from a business standpoint, people get a little peeved if you lose their mail.
So far, I've had some trouble getting everyone to play nicely. Really, I'm having difficulty with fetchmail and forwarding spooled messages.
As far as testing goes, it looks like everything is running fine. I'm not getting any error messages, but once the email reaches the first gateway, it just seems to hang up. I can cue up email there until my drives are full, but for whatever reason, it's not forwarding to the next box. I've triple checked all of my conf files and the IPs and ports all look good, so I'm kind of at a loss.
Anyone have any ideas / experience?
