FFAPI: ERR MSG: Unknown Service or Bad Address

Article ID: 106623

Article Last Modified on 10/30/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Mail Software Development Kit 3.0



This article was previously published under Q106623

SYMPTOMS

Microsoft Mail File Format API (FFAPI) "put" programs may return the following errors:

151-1-2 - Unknown service xxx
142-1-2 - Bad Address

CAUSE

File Format API (FFAPI) uses address type CSI (for Consumer Software Inc.) to denote a Microsoft Mail style address. For example, if a foreign directory synchronization message is being submitted to MS Mail Directory Synchronization from FFAPI, the "TO:" line could be one of the following:

TO:CSI:net/po/$system
TO:net/po/$system


Inside the message body, however, address updates and the reqname field use address type PCM (for PC Mail) because this part of the message is processed by directory synchronization. For example:

[dirsync]
task=export
reqname=PCM:net/po
transactions=inbody

[dirsync-transactions]
1200 A Martin, Robert PCM:net/po/rmartin


RESOLUTION

Specify address type CSI or no address type at all whenever FFAPI has to interpret the address. Otherwise, use address type PCM.
