Openerp 7.0 ubuntu x64:

emails are not fetched by scheduled actions. As admin I manually fetch the emails by Settings > Technical > Email > Incoming Mail Server > SELECT The account > CLICK fetch now.

What is wrong?

Here is the fetch mail config

Check your server, that it work in UTC. Because, if it work in other time zone, then action schedulers cause wrong calculation next action.

thanks for the tip. I set my timezone to UTC. I w'ill post the results.

I think I am running into the same problem with timezones. My fetch schedule will not run. I'm not sure what you mean. When you say "Check your server", do you mean the OpenERP server, Ubuntu Server settings, or postgres settings? Our timezone is Canada/Mountain. Can you share more detail on the correct timezone configuration ? thx.

My email is working great now. OE would not check for email until I set the timezone to the UTC format. I set the timezone on my Ubuntu server from the command line using this tutorial: http://codeghar.wordpress.com/2007/12/06/manage-time-in-ubuntu-through-command-line/ Basically I just set it to GMT + 6:00 for mountain standard time. When you run the tzdata command, select Etc to get to the UTC options. Then reboot Ubuntu. In your browser, log in as administrator and go to your Preferences tab and set the timezone to the same to get rid of the yellow icon timezone error.
