JIRA Emails not getting sent

Hi All

We are on jira5 and until last friday all jira notification emails were being sent to its users automatically. However since Friday notification emails are being stuck in the mail queue (not error queue).

Today morning i had to manually flush around 5K notification emails and all were sent in an hour or so. The problem is i see that emails are geting queued again in the mail queue and are not getting sent automatically. (they get sent if i manually flush them)

How can i fix this problem? What can be the possible root causes for this?

Is your mail queue service present and running? You could restart your JIRA so that it picks it up again.

hi Timothy

restarting jira has solved the problem. but i have still not clear on the root cause of the problem? Any pointers? there is nothing in the logs.

Could be the service that just died :)

HI Timothy

i think that was the case. I restarted and it was all fine

Did someone increase the delay of the mail service? Or are there any error in the logs?

HI Jobin

nopes, the delay on mail service is still 1 min. No errors in the logs. Any ideas on what could have triggered this?

PS: the issue was resolved after restart.


What does your log file say about it? Any errors listed?

HI Randall nopes there is nothing in the logs....
