How to resend previously jammed emails
Monday, December 5, 2016 6:34 AM

Connection problems, expired authentication credentials on the mail server, misconfiguration, and even an improperly formatted email address can cause emails dispatched form FocalScope to fail. Once the cause for the failure has been identified and corrected, jammed emails can be resent or delete. This article details how to resend emails that jammed because of SMTP problems or an improperly formatted email address.

Tutorial

Resending jammed outgoing emails

Emails that failed to send get jammed in the outbox of the agent who tried to send them (this is true for emails send from shared folders, also). Jammed emails also show up highlighted in red in personal and shared folders. After correcting the issue(s) that cause emails not to be sent from FocalScope, resend or delete the jammed emails by doing the following:

  1. In a personal or shared folder, right-click the highlighted jammed email and select [Resend] or [Delete] (see   Figure 1)
  2. In an agent's Outgoing folder, right click the jammed email and select [Resend] or [Delete] (see Figure 2)
