    SMTP Error Message could not be assembled due to error 1

    Q: We had an issue with one of our servers, and had to rebuild it from scratch. When we rebuilt our workflows all seemed to be fine however we are getting the following error when we try to initiate an SMTP workflow.
    6/14/2022 5:03:47 PM SendSMTPMsg Exception: Message could not be assembled due to error 1
    We don’t see any errors on the SMTP server, and this is the same setup we had in place before the previous server failed.
    Can you give us a direction on this? I am not sure what error 1 means, and I am unable to find it in the documentation.

    A: Did you copy/paste some text into the body (or subject) field? Could you clear the body completely and do a test please.

    This is most likely the message contains a character which is not covered by the current charset. If you didn’t set any charset, “iso-8859-1” is used by default.
    Also, please make sure you’ve provided at least one “from” address and at least one “to” address. This could be the reason of the error also.

    For SMTP we also have a CharSet option. In your case I would set it to:   utf-8

    Get content of text file and use this as body for email

    Q: If I use Filemover to move or copy a txt file, is it possible to get the contents of that file, and then maybe include it in a Rule Event e-mail? I would like it as the e-mail body please.

    A: Yes this is possible. We’ll use some Pascal Script to read the content of the text file into a variable (%VSA). This variable will be used in the email setup of the SMTP destination.

    In our example we’ll scan for text files in a local Windows folder.

    Limagito File Mover get content of text file

    The ‘Include File Name’ filter is set to *.txt because we only want to pick up text files.

    Limagito File Mover Filename Include Filter

    Important, set the Function > Destination Option to ‘Exit Cyclus on Error’. The reason is that we are going to use two destinations. The first destination which is a Pascal Script will read the content of the text file in to the %VSA variable. If this doesn’t succeed then we should not go to the second ‘SMTP’ destination. We only want to sent the email (SMTP) if the read content of the source text file is successful.

    Limagito File Mover Function Setup

    As previously described, we are going to use two destinations. Important, the first one must be the ‘Pascal Script’ destination.

    Limagito File Mover Destination Setup

    Var
      tmpFile: String;
      tmpList: TStringList;
    Begin
      psExitCode:= 0;
      // ... add your code here
      tmpFile := psFilePath + psFileName;
      tmpList := TStringList.Create;
      Try
        Try
          tmpList.LoadFromFile(tmpFile);
          psVSA := tmpList.Text;
          psExitCode := 1;    
        Except
          psLogWrite(1, '', 'Error loading ' + tmpFile); 
        End;  
      Finally
        tmpList.Free;
      End;  
    End.

    Limagito File Mover get content of text file

    The second destination is SMTP. Some screenshots of the setup we used. We added the %VSA varaible in the Body of the email.

    Sending emails using GMail SMTP with OAuth2 authentication – OOB

    Q: Sending emails using GMail SMTP with OAuth2 authentication. I am trying to set up an outgoing email notification that will happen when a file moves to it’s destination.

    8th of May 2022, we are working on an update because of: OAuth out-of-band (oob) flow will be deprecated

    Instead of the Google URI urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob you’ll have to use a loopback (IP) address as Redirect URI like http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost

    Starting from version v2022.5.8.0 a redirect port will be added to the OAuth2 setup which is only needed during the OAuth2 verification setup.

     

    A: Yes this is possible.

    First check if you enabled the GMail API in your account: https://support.google.com/googleapi/answer/6158841?hl=en

    Secondly we’ll need credentials ‘Client ID and Client Secret’  for the OAuth2 authentication: https://support.google.com/googleapi/answer/6158857?hl=en&ref_topic=7013279

    We added some screenshots to help you with the setup.

    Don’t forget the Security Options:

    OAuth2 Setup:

    OAuth out-of-band (oob) flow will be deprecated
    Please add the following information:
    – Authorization Endpoint URL: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/v2/auth
    – Token Endpoint URL: https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v4/token
    – Client ID
    – Client Secret
    – Scope: https://mail.google.com/
    – Redirect URI: http://127.0.0.1
    – Redirect Port: 3017 (can be any other port that is not in use)
    Click GET and your browser will open. Please follow the steps in your browser and after acceptance we will automatically fill in Refresh Token and Access Token. Do not forget to <Save> afterwards.
