Notes on Sendmail

If you are using Sendmail (Unix mail gateway program) please ensure the following:

  • You are using the latest version of mail.jar (currently 1.4.3) from Oracle - this is to be found in the lib\ext directory of your Presence installation.
  • You include the following line in the file "[Presence Install]\bin\presenceserver.lax":
mail.smtp.userset=true

This will ensure that Sendmail does not get stuck when dealing with multiple emails.
