I have the following page (below) that has worked fine for years, but since yesterday it is erroring out:
- I have uninstalled any Windows Server 2008 updates, no change.
- I'm running ColdFusion 9,0,1,274733 Standard
- I'm open to other ideas to grab the xml attachment from an email (Exchange server) and save it to a folder on the server?
Here is the error:

Here is my page code:
<!--- Call cfpop to get any new JULIE emails, save the XML attachments to file folder on the server --->
filepath = "C:\locates\xmlLocateAttachments";
eserver = "x.x.x.x";
euser = "username";
epass = "password";
<!--- Call cfpop and delete the emails from the server since they have now been saved to file --->
Verify whether the Exchange server is up and running.
Check by other means whether your login credentials are still valid.
Exchange is up and fine. I can log into this account via OWA and get in fine. The CF log files say:
|Aug 11, 2016||11:30 AM||Error||jrpp-4||7A0B43BAAE7814BE4D66A08D0770F16B|
|An exception occurred when setting up mail server parameters.This exception was caused by: javax.mail.MessagingException: Connect failed; nested exception is: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect. The specific sequence of files included or processed is: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\CRM\LOC\saveXMLattachment.cfm, line: 19|
The reason is in the error: Connection Refused.
This wont be to do with you code. The Exchange server is blocking your access. POP is different to OWA, you can enable and disable the individually. POP may have been disabled or changed on the exchange server. It could even be blocking the IP address / range you connect from.
You will need to find out what has changed on the exchange server as this will be the reason why its not working. If you code has not changed then it wont be causing the issue. If a config has changed on the server then you will need to find out what so you can adjust your code if possible (i.e. different port)
Thank you to BKBK and haxtbh, the issue is resolved!
I cannot believe that the issue was the "pop3 service" was not running on the Exchange Server?
- I had rebooted the Exchange Server first thing and assumed that would make sure all services were up & running.
- For some reason the pop3 service did not start back up this time?
- I restarted it and all started working fine.
Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction. Appreciate this forum & those who reply.
Jlig007, thank you, too, for sharing that with us. Please mark it as the correct answer.
I may be blind. but I cannot find a way to mark the correct answer?
