The Notification Mailer shows the following error:

Navigation: Oracle Application Manager > Site Map > Administration tab >
Notification Mailer (under Workflow)
Click: Workflow Notification Mailer

Component Details: Workflow Notification Mailer: TEST3 shows an error in Status
Information:

This automatic Service Component has been restarted the maximum of 10 times after
stopping with error. Thus, it has been system deactivated ->
oracle.apps.fnd.cp.gsc.SvcComponentContainerException: Could not start component;
performing rollback -> oracle.apps.fnd.cp.gsc.SvcComponentException: Validation
failed for the following parameters -> {OUTBOUND_SERVER=Unable to make a network
connection.}.

Solution:

Change Outbound Server from EBS application tier server to mail server. The Outbound Server is usually automatically reset as part of the cloning process.
