Hello @ServiceDesk Things_io,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Checking the logs of your site, I was able to find errors to process emails on November 2, but it doesn't show the cause.

Some errors are:

"message":"Failed to process message with ID 1XX"

"message":"Transient error while processing emails"

"message":"Email processing failed for handler, httpStatusCode 500"

Is it happening with all incoming emails or only when it's a specific sender?

Are you using a custom email? If so, can you check if the same issue happens when sending an email to the default one?

When did this issue start? 

Is it happening when sending any type of attachment or only specific ones?


i think it's issue on attachments file type. tested with different types and it's worked. thank you for your support.

Is it possible that the attachment exceeds 10MB? Currently if the attachment exceeds 10MB limit the issue isn't created. 

It is something that we are evaluating, please head over to and vote/feedback.



Hello Ben,

Thank you for your response. Are there any specific file formats that doesn't support JIRA service desk? (For example *.crt , *.pem , *.cer) 


Hey again, 

Not that I am aware of, I have just conducted a test on my end with the 3 file types you mentioned and they are all passing through email into the ticket.

I hope that helps
