I'm trying out the 3.0 labs version of Alfresco, and trying to test out email archiving.  I've installed the AMP file into the ROOT.war file:

# java -jar /srv/Alfresco/bin/alfresco-mmt.jar list /srv/Alfresco/tomcat/webapps/ROOT.war
Module 'org.alfresco.module.RecordsManagement' installed in '/srv/Alfresco/tomcat/webapps/ROOT.war'
   -    Title:        Records Management
   -    Version:      1.3
   -    Install Date: Wed Sep 24 16:30:54 MDT 2008
   -    Desription:   Alfresco Record Management Extension
Module 'org.alfresco.module.vti' installed in '/srv/Alfresco/tomcat/webapps/ROOT.war'
   -    Title:        Vti
   -    Version:      1.0
   -    Install Date: Wed Sep 24 16:31:30 MDT 2008
   -    Desription:   Alfresco Vti Extension
Module 'emailextension' installed in '/srv/Alfresco/tomcat/webapps/ROOT.war'
   -    Title:        Alfresco Email Extension
   -    Version:      2.3
   -    Install Date: Mon Sep 29 11:57:38 MDT 2008
   -    Desription:   RFC 822 email extension

I then configured the smtp server as such:

# cat /srv/Alfresco/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/
# Alfresco Email Service and Email Server

# Enable/Disable the inbound email service.  The service could be used by processes other than
# the Email Server (e.g. direct RMI access) so this flag is independent of the Email Service.
# The username to authenticate as when the sender address is not recognised

# Email Server properties

# A comma separated list of email REGEX patterns of allowed senders.
# If there are any values in the list then all sender email addresses
# must match.  For example:
#   .*\@alfresco\.com, .*\@alfresco\.org
# Allow anyone:

# A comma separated list of email REGEX patterns of blocked senders.
# If the sender email address matches this then the message will be rejected.
# For example:
#   .*\@hotmail\.com, .*\@googlemail\.com

So far so good.  Next I created the 'mailbot' user and added it to the 'EMAIL_CONTRIBUTORS' group:


Then created a 'mail' folder in 'My Home' and attached an email alias to it:


So from all this, I thought I got everything.  But I send an email to, and I get the following response:

Final-Recipient: rfc822;
Action: failed
Status: 5.5.0
Diagnostic-Code: smtp;554 The email address '' does not reference a valid accessible node.

Did I miss anything obvious? Or less than obvious?
