Email and Timer error events on new web front ends

  Asked By: Jordan    Date: Dec 21    Category: MOSS    Views: 1547

I recently added two WFEs to our MOSS 07 farm. I haven't set up load balancing
yet, so they are basically just sitting there.

On both servers I am getting the following two error events every minute:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3
Event Category: Timer
Event ID: 6398
Date: 8/11/2009
Time: 3:11:30 PM
User: N/A
Computer: MOSS1
Description:
The Execute method of job definition
Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPIncomingEmailJobDefinition (ID
0a97dc01-335d-4ce2-a165-938df27a78c3) threw an exception. More information is
included below.

Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: path


and


Event Type: Error
Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3
Event Category: E-Mail
Event ID: 6872
Date: 8/11/2009
Time: 3:11:30 PM
User: N/A
Computer: MOSS1
Description:
A critical error occurred while processing the incoming e-mail drop folder . The
error was: Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: path.


I've verified the WSS timer account is a member of the WSS_WPG and WSS_ADMIN_WPG
groups, and that those groups have permissions to the drop folder.

I haven't done anything yet on the DNS or Exchange side. Any ideas on the error
messages?

Sounds like incoming  e-mail isn't configured properly in your farm. If you
aren't planning on using incoming e-mail  you can use Services on Server
screen in Central Admin (choose the Custom level to see all roles) and
deactivate that role from the machiens).
Otherwise, make sure you configure Incoming Email properly and ensure that
the path  for incoming messages to be dropped off at is correct.
