Mail logs broken

    I am having a major problem with qmail. It won't send to a remote server.
    E-mail going to a local address is sent fine but remote mail doesn't work (I am using an authorized mail account - not a relay).

    I would check my logs and post those, however... they somehow got deleted (not my fault... really! :rolleyes: ) and qmail doesn't recreate them. So I essentially have no way of telling what is going on.

    However, I do know that the mail just sits in the "remote" queue. It is never removed.

    Local mail goes through fine.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Summary:

    How can I recreate the log file so qmail starts logging again?
    (step by step please... example... vi maillog... type :wq!... chown ... etc... I don't want to forget something)

    Does anyone have any ideas on why the remote mail won't go through?

    This is a crippling problem.

    Thank you.

    You can recreate the maillog with:

    touch /usr/local/psa/var/log/maillog

    Are you sure you're looking in the right place for the logs? It's not in /var/log with the standard logfiles.

    Update:
    OK, my mail log finally decided to start logging something... here is what I get...
    To avoid spambots and such, I'm blanking out the ip address with 0.0.0.0 and the e-mail with andrew@example.com

    Please note: this happens with all mail hosts not just the one referenced in the log.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you Cranky for your reply.
