    Hi,

    I come to this from having run a number of sendmail servers. There are two sendmail tools which I use a lot in resolving email problems, just wondering whether QMail (which plesk installs) has an equivalent to either or both.

    (1) tail -f /var/log/maillog
    shows every action the mail server is performing in real-time - very hand for debugging (maillog file exists, but is 0 size constantly).

    (2) mailq
    shows list of messages awaiting delivery along with reason why its still on the queue.

    Assistance would be much appreciated.

    John

    I like qmHandle - it shows the number of remote and local emails in the queue.
