Disable incoming emails after restore

Dear Sir or Madam,

I used the following command line parameters for deactivating outgoing mails:


...and it works.

Is it possible to deactivate all incoming emails, too? (we use two email handler)

Kind Regards,

It will disable incoming emails too. See 


These are used to stop processing of incoming emails.

There is nothing else you need to configure.


Hi Tibor,


thx for your fast reply. Is it normal that I still see the incoming email configuration in JIRA? The outgoing email configration is deleted and replaced by a JIRA info msg.


Kind Regards,



Yes, absolutely normal. The handlers will run periodically, but will log a message to the log file that email processing is disabled and no emails will be downloaded from the accounts.
