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!
