cannot receive emails from apache

    Hi, I am noticing a very weird behaviour on Qmail/Plesk 7.5.2. If someone sends an email as "apache@localhost.localdomain" I do not receive it. In the log, I see the following:

    May 5 11:10:40 ns1 qmail-queue: dwlib[16525]: mail: all addreses are uncheckable - need to skip scanning (by deny mode)
    May 5 11:10:40 ns1 qmail-queue: dwlib[16525]: scan: the message(drweb.tmp.g8ZqoH) sent by apache@localhost.localdomain to webmaster@vivhost.com should be passed without checks, because contains uncheckable addresses
    May 5 11:10:40 ns1 qmail: 1115284240.534977 new msg 4066472
    May 5 11:10:40 ns1 qmail: 1115284240.535347 info msg 4066472: bytes 1572 from <apache@localhost.localdomain> qp 16526 uid 2020
    May 5 11:10:40 ns1 qmail: 1115284240.547597 starting delivery 1854: msg 4066472 to local 1-webmaster@vivhost.com
    May 5 11:10:40 ns1 qmail: 1115284240.547673 status: local 1/10 remote 1/20

    and that is the last entry for that message, but the message is lost completely.

    There should be an error logged somewhere if the message is not to be delivered.

    Why does this happen and how can I fix it?

    It may sound silly, but have you verified that 'webmaster@vivhost.com' exists and if it's an alias, that it points to a valid real mailbox?

    You can also check the .qmail file for webmaster and see if it is set to put good messages into the ./Maildir/ folder.

    Yes, of course, the address webmaster@vivhost.com receives all the other mail fine, just not from apache@localhost.localdomain. I tried to simulate this condition using telnet into smtp, and then I do get a message with an empty body and invalid date. So there is something definitely amiss when trying to receive from an invalid address like that.
