Oracle(R) BPEL Process Manager - Version: to
This problem can occur on any platform.


There are two BPEL process. One the e-mail sending BPEL process and the other e-mail polling BPEL process, using com.collaxa.cube.activation.mail.MailActivationAgent activation agent.

When an e-mail is sent by a standard / third party e-mail client, such as outlook email client, the e-mail polling BPEL process retrieves the email successfully.

When an e-mail is sent  by the e-mail sending BPEL process, using the email 'Process Activity', the e-mail polling BPEL process gets stuck and throws out the following error in the domain.log file.

<2007-05-24 13:57:30,347> <ERROR> <default.collaxa.cube.activation>
<HeartBeatListenerJob::execute> Error while invoking onHeartBeat() method, exception is "".

One other behavior that you will notice is that the e-mail will be deleted from the inbox though the e-mail polling BPEL process failed to read and process the e-mail successfully.
