Source of error messages

I am seeing the following at 10 minute intervals. The first message seems to occur randomly. That is, it doesn't appear immediately after some other log entry. The messages disappear after an Indigo server restart.

    2 Sep 2018 at 08:52:48
    Error email send message failed
    Error email re-send scheduled in 10 minutes
I have switched all of my notifications to use the Better Email plugin and gone through the Indigo database to make sure I am no longer calling the built-in email interface. So, this looks like some plugin is calling the Indigo email interface directly via the plugin API.

So, Is there any way to trace the source of these error messages?

None other than disabling plugins to try to figure it out.

Yea, I was afraid of that. Is there any way to see the email message queue? Seeing the content of the message would probably point out the source.

Re: Source of error messages

Not ideal, but you could install a local smtp server and point the builtin Indigo email to it. Then you could see what the message it sent was.

Here is a free smtp server:

Or if you want to be really crazy, you could install my SMTPd plugin and point the Indigo email sender to it. :twisted:

Then you could take those emails and resend them using BetterEmail. :P

Re: Source of error messages

I installed Mailslurper, because lanbrown was 3:18 faster than FlyingDiver... and, I found the problem. It was me! I was sending an email in an embedded Python script,
    indigo.server.sendEmailTo()
so it did not appear in the database when I searched through it for calls to the built-in Indigo email function..

Problem resolved. Thanks for the help and ideas.
