Mail archiva hangs and is not processing the mail

Cause

  • A large mail (with large attachments) can stall the mailarchiva while indexing. If the attachment is a zip file, its possibly larger when extracted.

Resolution

  • Reduce the default max mail size in mailarchiva to about 10 MB (by default is 150mb)
  • Increase the memory allocated to mailarchiva on the java command line (change the start script...by default is only 256 mb)
  • Archiving should not affect the local delivery - always put a shunting queue between mail server and archive server
