    trying to start resilient-email fails. The following error is inresilient-email.err

    java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: ""

    Cannot load daemon

    Service exit with a return value of 3

    It is clear that there is some config value that is set to empty string and the code is trying to convert it to int. Can somebody from the development team help figure out what that config name is ?
