  • Operating System: K8s

  • Number of Running Instances: 1
  • DB Replicaset Oplog: enabled

  • Firewalls involved:

Any additional Information

I’ve set up direct reply in Adminstrator > Email > Direct Reply with the following credentials:

Enable Direct Reply: True
Debug Direct Reply: True
Protocol: IMAP
Port: 993
Separator: +
Username: our_email_account_email
reply to: our_email_account_email
password: our_password

So I’m able to receive an email notification but when I reply to it, I get the email in the configured email inbox however no message is received in the chat, and I receive a rare error in the logs which shows up from time to time but not everytime.

The error begins with Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND
I’m unable to reproduce it currently but will add the logs once it reappears.

We’re using k8s and this is our values.yaml

# Default values for temp.
# This is a YAML-formatted file.
# Declare variables to be passed into your templates.

That will most likely be a DNS lookup error from INSIDE the container.

Shell into the docker Rocket instance and try to ping the server and you will most likely get a lookup failure.

I’m unable to install the ping command as it says

bash: ping: command not found

You need root permissions - either use su or sudo
