Q8500010: The status of my message shows there was a 'processing error'. How do I find out what went wrong?

Most probably, there was an error in your VBScript program. Line and character position will be shown to indicate the exact location where the error occurred in the script.

Q8500020: I have defined three triggers. When a new message comes in and all conditions are True, still only the first script is triggered. What's the reason for that?
A condition is ALWAYS FALSE if the status of the incoming message indicates that the message has already been processed. So, if you define three triggers (all enabled), and the first trigger sets the message status to PROCESSED, the other triggers will NEVER match the conditions and the associated scripts will never be called. Apparantly, the first script sets the status of the message to True, and the other two scripts are not executed.
