Use xinetd or init.d to restart qmail?

    I just went through a crazy weekend of wrestling with qmail. It would show as running, but not accept connections.

    Finally my ISP told me to do the follwoing:

    1) Stop using the /etc/init.d/qmail restart command
    2) Rename /etc/xinetd.d/smtp.psa to smtp_psa
    3) Use /etc/init.d/xinetd restart to bounce qmail

    I have a few quesitons around this and would appreciate any anwers or a link to a site that explains it.

    1) When I click restart form the Plesk console, which command is executed?

    2) When I run "/sbin/chkconfig --list" it shows qmail as active with all the regular services AND under xinetd services. Is the init.d version or the xinetd version going to start if I reboot my server?

    3) Which is the preferred configuration?

    I am on Fedro Core 2 with Plesk 7.5.4. I appreciate the help!
