FILE message control parameters

Unlink_Delay Integer Pause for 1 second after first failed attempt, 2 seconds after second failed attempt, and so on. Set to the number of seconds to wait before attempting to delete a file if the previous attempt to delete the file failed.

See The FILE message system.

FTP message control parameters
Name Values Default Description

The user name for accessing the FTP host.
Password String

The password for accessing the FTP host.
Root_Directory String

Debug YES, NO NO This parameter controls whether debugging output appears.
Active_Mode YES, NO NO

This parameter controls whether the client or the database server initiates all data transfer connections.

When this parameter is set to NO, (Passive mode) the client initiates all data transfer connections, in this case the message link.

When this parameter is set to YES (Active mode) the database server initiates all data connections.

If your FTP server is sitting behind an incorrectly configured firewall you may not be able to use the default passive transfer mode.

See Troubleshooting FTP problems.

SMTP message control parameters
Name Values Default Description

''
The name of the local computer. The local host name is required to initiate a session with any SMTP server. In most network environments, the local host name can be determined automatically and you do not need to supply this value.

Set this value to NO to use the RETR command, which is less efficient but works with all POP servers.
