Get email results from Log Analyzer?

I have Confluence and JIRA Software. I configured both to send me emails of the daily results from the log analyzer.

I get my result emails from JIRA Software but I do not get result emails from Confluence. This says to me that my mail server is working correctly. I then verified my settings under "Mail Servers" and everything is okay.

I went further and clicked the link in Confluence Mail Servers to "Send test email". The test email reports that it was sent successfully and I receive it without issue.

Why is it I can receive test emails from Confluence but the Log Analyzer fails to send me my daily scan results?

Hello there!

This might sound a little simplistic, but I would like to understand if you checked the spam filter of your email inbox. Sometimes important emails end up there for no apparent reason. I have faced this issue a number of times and the emails ended up in the spam box.

After that, we could check if the email left Confluence and reached your inbox, as intended.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you for your response. 

Just to be certain I did check my spam folder and there is nothing there. It is important to note that:

  • I am using MS Outlook to collect my emails
  • The mail server is being hosted locally on our intranet using hMailServer. This means there is no spam filtering.
  • JIRA is sending daily support results without issue using the same configuration settings

I would be very interested in learning how to trace the emails that are leaving and supposed to be leaving Confluence. This way I can narrow down the exact point of failure. Also, I am always open to learning more about how I can diagnose the inner workings of Confluence so that I can better understand how the mechanisms work moving forward.

I look forward to your response and any help you can provide.
