Error description

  • There is a difference in size in the file downloaded using
    FTP from STERLING B2B INTEGRATOR Mailbox than
    the file downloaded using the FTP client. This is due to null
    characters that are added to the file.
    
    
    Mailbox FTP adds null characters to file when a
    zero byte file is present on the mailbox.
    This happens only when there is a duplicate file in the
    mailbox with zero bytes and if the following parameter is set to
    false in mailbox.properties: disallowDuplicateMessages=false
