psadump clogs up mail queue

    Dear Colleagues,

    for the last weeks we've been battling with huge cpu loads of 3 to 10, before we realised that /var/qmail/queue was 1.9 GB large. Eventually we found a bounced message to root@ containing presumable the entire backup data of 1.8 GB.

    This is likely to be in some connection with a connection problem to the backup servers at a large German webhoster. After execution of the psadump cron job, psa (or at least some services) won't restart.

    Main question:
    How can I stop psadump from dumping it's data in an email? I can't believe this is a feature!?

    Any ideas on how to let psa wake up again after an erroneous backup?

    Your ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!
    Have a great day!
