Hello Kris,

Thanks a lot for your swift reply. It helped me.

While emails are still an issue, I created users and I can access the 
system and that's progress.

2 Issues with uploads

1. While uploading to the server, It gets stuck here.


I later checked my outbox, there was an entry and I could see the 
generated file link as well.

2. I could see the file and the link here. But clicking on the file / 
download all button goes into a loop and nothing happens. It's hardly a 
4 KB file.


I started looking into this issue. Logs show messages about failed 
emails ( which I know is to be fixed ) but though it says Download is 
completed but nothing happened.

The memory issue**was there from CLAMAV and I configured SWAP and did an 
external setup for it. I am not using SELinux*. *

*I am just going to debug the Emails but any help related to these files 
not working would be appreciated*
