    After update to Plesk 8.6.2 Linux (debian) my SMTP server is not starting anymore and no emails are received anymore since the 13 of september. I Have restarted the whole system, restarted qmail, stop spamassassin, checked the DNS settings, stopped bind, stopped courier, have executed mchk -v, looked at the logs (not much seen there!!!)

    I investing the machine a few hours now and don't know anymore what to do.

    Any help is welcome.

    kind regards!

    Please, check the status of xinit.d service:
    # /etc/init.d/xinit.d status
    # /etc/init.d/xinit.d restart

    Try connecting on port 25 that is listed by SMTP:
    # telnet localhost 25

    Also, make sure that SMTP service settings are not commented in this file:
    # vi /etc/xinit.d/smtp_psa

    and 'disable' is set to 'no'

    Thank you for your answer. I don't have the xinetd service running.

    telnet localhost 25 will give connection refused.

    I have restored the system to the previous version of Plesk. I'am interested what the problem was, so that i can do an update in the future. So hopefully you can help me further.
