The error message reads:

Failed to run permission check: Unrecognized target entity table (civicrm_note)

    No errors logged, but I manually examined this. The issue is the attachment. Error is in Civi/API/Subscriber/DynamicFKAuthorization.php line 210. Because: public function getDelegatedEntityName in that file, 'civicrm_note' is not in $this->allowedDelegates. If I add 'civicrm_note' to that array in Civi/Core/Container.php line 211 (the constructor), then I get a different error: Authorization failed on (Note,547) which appears to be coming from line 236 of DynamicFKAuthorization.php. Further debugging appears to require more in-depth knowledge of this code.

    (1) What was the previous version which was working? (Interested to know if, eg, this is your first mailing on 4.6.x.) (2) When exactly does that error appear? After saving a draft? After scheduling/submitting the mailing? When executing the cron job?

  • Previous version was 4.5.6. Error occurs when trying to send a test email to one address

  • Same. I've also found that after triggering a mail out (via scheduled cron or testing), the server generates 80+ PHP connections and MySQL connections which are in sleep mode. The whole server goes offline, until MySQL is restarted. The mail out does go out though. <pre> Aug 27 11:34:40 [info] $backTrace = #0 /home/clientusername/public_html/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Core/Error.php(364): CRM_Core_Error::backtrace("backTrace", TRUE) #1 /home/clientusername/public_html/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Mailing/Form/Optout.php(55): CRM_Core_Error::fatal("There was an error in yo

As Francesc pointed out, the symptoms sounds very similar to a contemporaneous question -- Why unexpected attached files are loaded in all mailings by default?

That was patched with https://github.com/civicrm/civicrm-core/pull/6644 and released as part of 4.6.9.
