    Same problem over here. QMail seems to work fine, but for some reason it incorrectly detects status on Plesk's panel.

    O/S: FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE-p6
    PSA: Plesk 8.0.0

    Even if I stop it via SSH and start it from Plesk, it runs the processes properly but still shows status as down. And of course, qmail start/stop from SSH works fine:
    # /usr/local/psa/rc.d/qmail stop
    Plesk: Qmail server has been stopped
    # /usr/local/psa/rc.d/qmail start
    Plesk: Qmail has been started
    # /usr/local/psa/rc.d/qmail status
    qmail-send (pid 19710) is running...

    Any ideas?

    PS: Plesk8 new interface seems nice

    In /etc/inetd.conf is an error!

    --> s/smtps/smtp
    (or s/smtps/ssmtp

    I think slith76 is right, I contacted SWSoft's support and they fixed it while they also told me:
    By the way, I'm seriously impressed by SWSoft's technical support. They started dealing the issue instantly and with really high professionalism.

    Good job SWSoft, special thanks to Alexander@SWSoft :)

    Hello,

    Same problem here using Plesk 8 and FC3 (psa v8.0.0_build80060331.13 os_FedoraCore 3). I have upgraded the system yesterday and since then the qmail SMTP server shows it's stopped.

    I can receive mail from inside (ie Watchdog alerts) but can't receive mail from outside (ie from my gmail account).

    It's really annoying because my entire mail system is broken and I'd be very happy to know how to fix that.

    Any idea ?

    Ok, my problem is solved. slith76 & psyxakias were right, but in my case both /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/mailmng --status-smtpd and telnet to port 25 were successful.

    The problem was that the server was too slow to answer on port 25, so plesk thought it was down. To make it faster, I followed the instructions here :

    http://kb.swsoft.com/article_22_298_en.html

    My second problem was about not receiving mail from outside the server. It was caused by a dns problem : I had just upgraded my system (I'm running FC3 and did a "yum update") and my named.conf was screwed up. Hopefully the old one was saved under named.conf.rpmsave so I just had to move it to named.conf and restart bind.

    Now everything's fine.

    I hope my experience will help someone out there.

    I have the same problem and im badly lost with it...

    Running FC4 with plesk 8.01 clean install...


    [root@host base]# telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    [root@host base]# netstat -an |grep ':25'
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:25 0.0.0.0:* LIST
    EN
    tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25 127.0.0.1:56334 TIME
    _WAIT

    It all seem to work, but it does not! It seems e-mail can't be send nor received. I read something about smtp_psa and smtps_psa both where not on my server, I took them from a 7.5.4. box ... Nothing changed...

    Is the file for 8.x different? If so can some one upload those?

    The psa_smtp files looks like:

    MAIL LOG seems to be go in a round... Plesk keeps giving it on not working, when hitting the start button it does nothing.


    edit... http://kb.swsoft.com/article_22_298_en.html did not work for me...

    EDIT².... HORDE actually comes up with this error... When sending.
    Who can give me a clue of what to do :rolleyes:

    I'm working with a clean build on CentOS 4.3 and am having the same problem with Qmail. It's runing but not answering to telnet on 25. After dicking around with the firewall and qmail, I remembered an error I had when installing rblsmtpd. So I reinstalled spamassassin and rblsmtpd and qmail started talking again. But I still get the error.

    BIND: cannot assign requested address

    I have also noticed my BIND config doesn't have the corrent IP in it, it's still a default config.

    To those still having problems, force a reinstall of spamassassin and/or rblsmtpd to see if that gets qmail answering. Service manager now says my Qmail is running.

    Also, on a clean install (non upgrade), the /etc/xinetd.d/smtp_psa files are not there/used.

    same error here, i have plesk on fedora 4 and smtp is not showed as running in plesk service monitor..

    i got no answer on telnet localhost 25, sending via webmin works, but i guess webmin uses sendmail to send mail ;)

    could someone please help me out? i paid 300 bucks to setup again my server and now the essential part, mailing, doesnt work...

    ^^in horde, i get the same error, port 25, connection refused.

    Can some one provide us with those files? Are the problems caused by this?

    psa-qmail-rblsmtpd is not helping me, did not even installed those packages... Just a clean install...

    It seems this is caused from (in control panel) updateing from plesk 8.01 to a newer build...

    Time for hotfix6......?!

    I'm not sure, but looks like it created the smtp file after I imported a client/domain. It was all of a sudden there when I tried to copy the files over from another server. I'm not sure if it is using it, but the smtp_additional file that I use to open Submission is now answering to telnet. Looks like Bind is working also. Everything seems to be working for me now.

    Did you try reinstalling spamassassin also?

    Yea, that's what it looks like.

    Not sure what the problem could be with you if you've already installed the packages. I'm assuming you've reinstalled Courier-IMAP as well and made sure your firewall was configed.. hmm
