Cannot Export


No available results

The export function may not be working due to a discrepancy between the index and store data. In other words, the index may not reflect the reality of what's inside the volume store. For instance, this situation can arise if the volume store is moved elsewhere. To resolve this issue, it may be necessary to find the offending volume based on the date of the message in Configuration->Volumes, and click the Reindex button next to the volume in question. The volume index will be deleted. It will take a day or two for the index to be regenerated and reflect what is present in the store path.


Locale has a neutral culture


When exporting data, the following error appears in the MailArchiva log file:


Neutral cultures cannot be used in formatting and parsing and therefore cannot be set as the thread's current culture


This error occurs because the selected locale contains language and not location info. To resolve this issue, click the Preferences menu at the top right. Select the client locale for your language and location (for example, German Germany). Then retry export.
