    Hi,

    I'm having the problem that after a long time /usr/local/psa/handlers/spool is getting full. It is mounted as a tmpfs of 1GB in size. When the spool gets full, no more mails are handled. As long as it isn't full, mails are working just fine.

    Does anyone have any idea why there are staying unhandles mails in that queue, even from several weeks or months old?

    I'm running version 9.2.1 on CentOs, my mail handler is Qmail.

    Thank you,
    Bart

    Hello Bart,

    There is a couple of our Knowledge Base articles that prove helpful:

    I see that some messages are staying in queue. How to force Qmail to process all messages in queue immediately?

    The server is saturated with SPAM. There are many messages in the queue. The mail is sent slowly.

    Denis.

    Hi Denis,

    Thank you for your reply. The problem isn't in /var/qmail/queue though.

    When I check the queue statistics, all I get is about 66 messages at this moment:
    #/var/qmail/bin/qmail-qstat
    messages in queue: 66
    messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0

    But, when I check the number of messages in /usr/local/psa/handlers/spool, I count 1.514 of them:
    # ls -l /usr/local/psa/handlers/spool|wc -l
    1514

    They aren't deleted after one week, unlike the messages in /var/qmail/queue. They will stay there forever, until I delete them manually. If I don't delete them, the directory will grow to 1GB in size and qmail won't be able to process new messages.

    Best regards,
    Bart

    An update to the latest versions seems to fix this issue.
