Q. I have a webfarm and I have purchased ocxQmail along with a second dispatcher license. It works great on a single machine, but when I use ocxQadmin to set up the spool directory to on the dispatcher machine, I keep getting "Create Dir Error: \\EmailSrv\mail\spool"
A. This is likely a permissions issue. Check the event log. You may have a message with the following insertion string:
 Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. \\EmailSrv\mail\spool Username: IUSR_WEBSVR.You will need to set up an account on EmailSrv for IUSR_WEBSVR and set the permissions so that IUSR_WEBSVR can create files and directories in the target directory: \\EmailSrv\mail\spool.
A. Currently ocxQmail is unable to create or write to a UNC directory that is only one level deep. We are looking into this problem. In the meanwhile, use a directory that is two levels deep, eg \\PowerHouse\flicks\spool. Thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org for identifying this problem.
