TitleMail can get lost
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf the replicator tries to send e-mail and fails (typically because of a problem with the SMTP server), then it just drops the mail. The contents are therefore lost.
AnalysisOn Unix we could use /bin/mail rather than SMTP. But on Windows we'd have to implement our own queueing system, which would be horrible, or use MAPI, which would be worse.
