    We have Plesk 7.5.3. Today I recgonized that it takes several hours to recieve e-mail from the server to Outlook or the webmail. This problem has never happened before. There are e-mails sent to me 10.44 am, 10:46 am and 10:49 am. I recieved the first e-mail about 12 am and then the last at 1 pm.

    I also sent a testmail to myself at 1.30 PM that I recieved 2.26 PM.

    This problem is affecting about 250 domains.

    I bet your server load is high, and you were spammed. How many spamc/spamd processes are running? Probably too many.

    ps auxwww|grep spam|wc -l

    Thank you very much! I don't know anything about "spamc/spamd processes ". Here is the output from the command you gave me:

    [root@coh-04 admin]# ps auxwww|grep spam|wc -l
    [root@coh-04 admin]#

    Anyway the http part etc of the server is fast...
