    We using Plesk 8.0.1, several days ago qmail stopped accepting mail from any domain/mailbox. In mail logs we only see successful imap/pop3 logins and messages containing "relaylock":

    Mar 26 21:43:42 server relaylock: /usr/local/psa/qmail/bin/relaylock: mail from (not defined)
    Mar 26 21:43:43 server relaylock: /usr/local/psa/qmail/bin/relaylock: mail from (gate4034.smwebhost.com)
    Mar 26 21:43:44 server relaylock: /usr/local/psa/qmail/bin/relaylock: mail from (mail-ww0-f52.google.com)
    Mar 26 21:43:50 server relaylock: /usr/local/psa/qmail/bin/relaylock: mail from (net51.181.94-174.chel.ertelecom.ru)
    Mar 26 21:43:59 server relaylock: /usr/local/psa/qmail/bin/relaylock: mail from (250.233.88-79.rev.gaoland.net)
    Mar 26 21:44:05 server relaylock: /usr/local/psa/qmail/bin/relaylock: mail from (mar75-8-88-164-226-180.fbx.proxad.net)

    When we try to send message we see the next:

    $ telnet server.xx 25
    Trying xx.xx.xx.xx...
    Connected to server.xx.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 server.xx ESMTP
    helo xxx
    250 server.xx
    mail from: test@xxxxx.xx
    250 ok
    rcpt to: test@server.xx
    250 ok
    354 go ahead
    connect(): Connection refused
    451 mail server temporarily rejected message (#4.3.0)

    What is meant by "relaylock: /usr/local/psa/qmail/bin/relaylock"? What may be the problem with qmail?

    Did you manage to solve your problem? I'm having the same issue on Plesk 8.0 on FreeBSD 6.0 . Haven't changed anything recently except adding a domain for a friend. I tried deleting it but that did not help at all.

    We did not find out what was the problem. It was fixed after server reboot (Plesk or qmail restart did not help). Later we found spammer on server, problem may be related with it.

    Hello Konstantin,

    A reboot fixed it for me too. Weird though. Good that it is still 7AM so it did not cause much damage. Thanks for the quick reply
