    Hello All,

    I recently started getting a continuous flow of the following errors in my qmail log:

    Mar 17 12:50:47 smcserver2 qmail: 1142625047.382200 starting delivery 3270: msg 31616010 to local 131-anonymous@smcserver2.com

    Im concerned about the ref to 'qmail-spawn_unable_to_open_message'.

    These appear to be system mails, but for they are happening as some incredible frequency - about 50-70 per second.

    There are 'normal' email deliveries occuring in the middle of these messages.

    I have tried completely uninstalling psa-qmail - and then reinstalling
    rpm -e psa-qmail
    then
    yum install psa-qmail

    I even thought I might have something buggy in the queue, so I completely removed the mail queue /var/qmail/queue/mess on one of the re-install attempts (manually making just a 'mess' folder with proper permissions)

    Has anyone had any expereience with this or suggestions on what might be wrong?

    I dont know if this is maybe a spam script on my server from a host or if there is something trying to make the server email itself continuously??

    I don't know if you will be able to get psa-qmail via yum. This is Plesk package.

    Your problem looks like there is some kind of permission problem - probably some binaries have incorrect permissions.

    You can check package integrity with:

    # rpm -V psa-qmail

    If you want to restore default permissions you need to force reinstallation of psa-qmail and drweb-qmail rpms, like this:

    # rpm -Uvh --force psa-qmail drweb-qmail

    You can get this rpms from Plesk distribution, usually they are stored in /root/psa

    Hi - Thanks for the reply.

    I ended up removing the entire queue folder (not just the mess folder) and then re-installing qmail - that seems to have done the trick. I suspect a permissions issue.
