Feature Request: Spool emails if mail server is down

Postby slwtx1983.gmail » Wed Jul 09, 2014 1:58 pm

I don't think this is possible in the current setup, is it? If my mail server is rebooting, Labtech just seems to log that the mail failed to deliver. I'd prefer for it to spool the request until the Mail server is available.

We work around this by installing the SMTP service/feature on our LT server, send mail to it (e.g. to localhost, with it set to allow connections and relaying only from 127.0.0.1), and have it use our Exchange server as a Smart Host.
