    SMTP Server (Qmail) is stopped

    Click Restart

    Service is not available now. Please check your Mysql status here.

    Service is Running

    I cant remember were I saw it... there was a mention of No File or Folder.

    Everything was running fine for 1 1/4 years, my email server was being used to bouce spam from it so I stop the SMTP Server so I could clean the queue list and when I went to restart it this is what I get.

    Any help on this will be greatly appreciated !!!!

    Can anyone help?

    Any ideas what to check for?

    I have the 4000 messages in the queue.. I was going to remove them from the mail queue, I stopped the server before deleting any becuase I did not want to remove enough for it to send the remaining junk.

    When I went to queue list it would not display any becuase qmail service was not running.

    Now when I try to start qmail server it fails..

    What can I try?

    Under Server... Services when I click SMTP Start

    Service is not available now, probably your Plesk is misconfigured.
    Contact Your provider for details.

    Internal Plesk error occurred: Unable to make action: Unable to manage service by mailmng: mailmng: Service qmail failed to start System error 2: No such file or directory

    Is it possible somehow the file or folder was deleted os something?

    Could you please provide with the output of
    /etc/init.d/qmail start

    If it fails the piece of /usr/local/psa/var/log/maillog and /var/log/messages (if there are any errors) would be helpful
