Title: Duplicate Email Bug
Post by ndoors on Nov 20th, 2006 at 5:19pm
Hi,

I am having a few techinical difficulties with the WatchDirectory software.

Every time a new file arrives into the moniterd file, the email notification system notfies the user twice.

Can somebody provide assistance with this matter.

Thanks

Michael Briggs

Hello Michael,

What is the most probable cause is that you have enabled the FILENEW *and* FILECHNG event on the "events" window ( http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/help/wdnewconfigpage4.html ). Depending on how the file is being created (the program that creates it), WD could start the task (and thus send email) for 1 "new file" and multiple "the file has changed" events.
If you do not require the file-has-changed event emails, you can disable it. If you DO need file-has-changed emails, you should set the "delay starting task" option on the "Other settings" page ( http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/help/wdnewconfigpage6.html ) to a higher value, for example 10 seconds. WatchDirectory will merge all events during this delay period and so you will receive only 1 email.

Gert
