    After upgrading from Plesk 8.1 to 8.3 we got the problem of slow outgoing mail described by many others (but no definitive solution provided, thanks!) and tried some of the many suggestions posted, including running /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/mchk --with-spam .

    The only thing this did was removing all content of rcpthosts and virtualhosts.

    Only solution was to restore a backup from before the upgrade.

    I get more and more the feeling that Plesk and especially qmail is a card house. Any little glitch and the whole thing falls apart!

    This can happen only if the mail service for the domains was disabled.

    I have never met the similar issue before. mchk compares the data from the Plesk database and
    if the domain has the mail service enabled it adds the domain name in rcpthosts and virtualdomains files.

    Well it just happened to us too.

    We ran mchk and it totally destroyed both the rcpthosts and virtualdomains.

    As of our, all our mail is down.

    Word of warning to future users... DO NOT RUN THIS!
