    This is what I get when I go into the service management and attempt to start qmail. Any help?

    How would I do that? Can you give me the commands? This is a FedoraCore 4 system.

    Thanks

    >>Thank you Cranky.

    How did you get your name "Cranky" you are one of the more knowledgeble people on this forum and also one of the most helpful. These being typically mutually exclusive traits.

    Thanks for the post, this did the trick, you can also use the Plesk updater and update 'Base packages of Plesk' after running the rpm -e command with same result.

    Cranky, you are really great. But please always explain full paths paths for beginners like me. I successfully removed qmail but i was not aware with Plesk paths of "cd /path/to/plesk/extracted/tarball/"

    But i tried plesk updater and its worked.

    Many many thanks, God bless you

    Am having same problem after qmail decided to die after a botched Updater process.

    As suggested I did:

    rpm -e psa-qmail --nodeps

    First I got:

    error: "psa-qmail" specifies multiple packages

    So I did :

    rpm -e --force psa-qmail --nodeps

    and got:

    rpm: only installation, upgrading, rmsource and rmspec may be forced

    Is there any way I can get this working without resorting to paid support?

    I'm this close to getting the hosting provider to reinstall from scratch because this should not be happening. Updater processes should not kill services. Aren't these processes tested before being rolled out? This was a fresh 8.0.0 install on a FC4 machine so I decided to make sure I had the latest version before I setup the rest. I should have just left it as it was.

    Could you give any advice on where the qmail tarball might be located or where to download it from? Bit of a newbie so I would need the full command to do this. Thanks!

    How do you reinstall Qmail : I checked in the updater and the Base package of Plesk 9.2.2 is up to date. I can't install anything else.

    I don't know where I can find it on the server to do it in shell as suggested. Where is the "/path/to/plesk/extracted/tarball/"?

    Thanks for your help,
    Celia
