    Hi I am having trouble with qmail on our server. The maillog files were balooning in size so I removed these.

    However since then we have had problems with qmail. The server has been restarted but now we can't connect to the pop server. Sending emails is fine.

    As well as this when I try to stop and start qmail from a shell it says start up failed, but when I check the status it says it is running???

    I ran the command

    rpm -V psa-qmail

    which checks the integrity and found these files missing?

    missing /var/qmail/queue/lock
    missing /var/qmail/queue/lock/sendmutex
    missing /var/qmail/queue/lock/tcpto
    missing /var/qmail/queue/lock/trigger

    Can i reinstall these?
