    If someone get the same problem as I have got on my servers, here you have a solution. (I guess this only occurs if you are running drweb)

    When I updated to the last release of plesk-7.5.4 I ran this (from base rpms):
    rpm -Uvh *750603* Mambo-

    These were installed then:
    72 -rw-r--r-- 1 psaadm psaadm 67538 Mar 22 21:19 psa-api-cli-7.5.4-rhel3.build75060321.20.noarch.rpm
    624 -rw-r--r-- 1 psaadm psaadm 633647 Mar 22 21:18 psa-api-common-7.5.4-rhel3.build75060321.20.noarch.rpm
    1232 -rw-r--r-- 1 psaadm psaadm 1256625 Mar 22 21:17 psa-hotfix6-7.5.4-rhel3.build75060321.20.i586.rpm
    2296 -rw-r--r-- 1 psaadm psaadm 2344686 Mar 22 21:17 psa-qmail-1.03-rhel3.build75060321.20.i586.rpm
    5620 -rw-r--r-- 1 psaadm psaadm 5742159 Mar 22 21:19 Mambo-

    The problem is qmail. When the last rpm of qmail is installed it destroys ownership AND installs wrong qmail-queue file (I guess this will only happen if you use drwebd)

    The result is (/var/qmail/bin)

    16 -r-s--x--x 1 qmailq qmail 14808 Mar 21 15:57 qmail-queue
    164 -r-xr-xr-x 1 root qmail 161024 Aug 25 2005 qmail-queue.drweb
    16 -r-xr-xr-x 1 root qmail 14808 Aug 24 2005 qmail-queue.origin

    to fix this I ran:
    chmod 4511 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-queue*
    chown drweb:qmail /var/qmail/bin/qmail-queue*
    chown qmailq:qmail /var/qmail/bin/qmail-queue.origin
    cp /var/qmail/bin/qmail-queue.drweb /var/qmail/bin/qmail-queue -p

    which gives this:
    164 -r-s--x--x 1 drweb qmail 161024 Aug 25 2005 qmail-queue
    164 -r-s--x--x 1 drweb qmail 161024 Aug 25 2005 qmail-queue.drweb
    16 -r-s--x--x 1 qmailq qmail 14808 Aug 24 2005 qmail-queue.origin

    In the maillog I got these errors:
    qmail-queue: dwlib: runner: submitter[31590] with error code 62
    qmail-queue: dwlib: mail: wait for submitter failed
    qmail-queue: drweb-qmail[30049]: cannot reinject message to mail system

    I asked SWSoft support for this error and they fixed the problem...

    Here's their answer:
    I've reinstalled drweb packages to fix permissions and owners of qmail-queue* files, now they are correct.

    Also I changed value of "LicenseLimit" from "reject" to "pass" in config /etc/drweb/drweb_qmail.conf, this allows drweb to avoid rejecting messages due to license limitation (a known problem that will be fixed in next patch 8.0.1).
