Email on JDE 4.5 sim

I recently installed JDE 4.5 (now alongside 4.2 and 4.3). I am attempting to run an application on the various simulators that shipped with the 4.5 JDE (currently trying the 8320).


Here is the issue: I send an email to the simulator, and I see the Email show up and (apparently) parse correctly in the MDS window, yet the email never hits the inbox of the simulator. There are no exceptions in the MDS window. I am using the MDS that shipped with the JDE, and executing it when the sim is started.


Having said that, I also tried MDS 4.1.4 (starting manually prior to starting the sim) with the same result.


My device ID and email accounts are set up correctly. The same setup works fine on both 4.2 and 4.3.


JDE is

8320 sim shows

JDK is 1.6.0_05

JRE is 1.6.0_05


Any ideas? I have already removed and re-installed the JDE and the Sun JDK/JRE.

Re: Email on JDE 4.5 sim

This turned out to be a firewall issue.
