    bounce ClassCastException

    mike andrews Newbie

      found a ClassCastException in JMSMailListener.prepareBounceMessageForMail(), and am not sure how to proceed. may be a minor architectural issue needing original architect's advice :-)

      issue is in logic looking at whether recipient is local or not, whether or not to add message to a failed list. logic assumes EnvelopedAddress, when in fact its a MailAddress, and MailAddress doesn't have a getLocal() method --- which is the architectural issue. i committed a small comment there to cvs.

      i tried removing the code 'boolean local = ...' etc, leaving just the 'failed.add(..)', and successfully got a bounce message when sending to a non-existent yahoo account (or maybe yahoo didn't like 'mail from:<mikea@localhost>'), but don't think this is the right solution since i basically removed the logic there which should be doing something useful.

          What happens when you do a


          This should tell you what class is actually it's expecting. You may already know this sort of thing, not trying to be insulting.

            no problem steve, i positively appreciate any time someone can spend to help me understand this or any other issue! thanks.

            i did a "logger.info(rcpts.getClass())", which showed a "MailAddress", and not an "EnvelopedAddress". that also explains the ClassCastException.


            btw --- this new jboss forum website design has a nasty side-effect: if you resize the browser window in IE while composing, you risk completely losing your post when page is re-layed-out (happened to me once on this message already). not sure which html or javascript is responsible for that.

            p.s., trying to resize browser window after *previwing* one's post results in IE error message 'can't refresh without re-sending information'. so i think the reason is maybe due to some errant javascript, resizing browser window translates into a 'refresh' instead --- there's tons of javascript in these web pages.

            p.p.s: another weird new forum 'feature' is this automatic italicization you probably see in this post. have no idea how that happens either, and i never usually speak in italics!

              This is kabir's code. I think the logic only takes place if say the server doesn't exist. Yahoo would generate the bounce message if it was justa non-existent account. Whats weird is it seems like the bounce code is working...

                right --- don't know why, but may be because the ClassCastException is being caught somewhere else... i apologize for not completely tracing it through yet. will check into it. mike

                  I'll take a look a bit later today. Mike, do you have a use case that will cause this to happen?

                    thanks kab --- i was logged in as mikea@localhost, user mikea, password in jboss-service.xml, on my own local machine's jboss server. i sent an email to test@yahoo.com. from jbmail logs, looks like yahoo didn't like 'mikea@localhost' and rejected that. a few seconds later, got a classcastexception in jbmail logs. this was all in latest HEAD code. mike

                      Fixed, the errors happening within SMTPSender are different when the server can't be reached, and when an account on a server is invalid. The invalid account exception (SendFailedException) returns a InternetAddress[]. Previously I created MailAddress from the failed ones, now I am creating EnvelopedAddress w/local=false.
