    I run the following command>


    the result is>
    messages in queue = 144
    no yet processed = 0

    I think this is a big problem, how do I "see
    " what messages are and from whom., and how to I restart the qmail (command)

    The ones that do not have DONE are "floating'" in the Internet and have not arrived????

    /var/qmail/bin/qmail-qread would give you an idea where they are going, not necessarily where they are from.

    It is unusual to have that many queued messages, but it would really depend on what you do with your server. If you have alot of forums or mailing lists then it may not be too unusual.

    Most of the really big problems have been scenarios where there is more than 1K of messages queued. I have seen some servers with 15K, and one guy (here) mentioned 150K!

    Personally I have 40 domains hosted, and if I have more than 20 messages in the queue it is unusual. But I have also ran servers with popular mailing lists and it wouldn't be unusual to have 500 or 600 in the mail queue.

    I have 30 domains hosted, many customers have told me that their messages are arriving 3 days after or 24 hours after, is this a problem with qmail queue?

    Is this mail from your server or to your server?

    From my server, I have add the Rt0 in the Args, will this change the delay?

    Not sure what you added '-Rt0' to.

    There is a number of factors in mail delivery, sometimes it is purely due to spam filters, sometimes it is due to the remote server being down, and sometimes it is your fault.

    Did you test it out yourself sending mail to yahoo accounts, etc?
