This looks like a permissions issue. The qmail-queue program cannot create file(s) in the queue directory (usually /var/qmail/queue)
So check the permissions and ownership of the queue directory and all its subdirs:
Code:
find /var/qmail/queue/ -type d -exec ls -ld {} \;

The permissions look ok. I guess that the openprotect software you're trying to install does not have the rights to write in the queue directory
Check the logs to see if you find anything

Doh, check if your disk is not full. Also check if qmail-queue is suid root
Code:
ls -l /var/qmail/bin/qmail-queue
Also if qmail was working before installing openprotect, you may ask them for support, as you pay for it

Regards

I'm sorry I don't, but there are howtos out there you can try to follow.
The qmail-queue permissions are correct, as the suid bit is set. Are you sure it's not something else like SELinux?
Also from what I've read about mailscanner, you may need to increase the softlimit value, when you run antivirus and antispam software along with qmail, or else you might face the problem you mentioned. See here for details

The softlimit is high enough, but maybe it's worth trying to increase it a bit more and see what happens.
Re. SELinux. I guess you're running centos given your nick and the os image in your profile. Centos comes by default with SELinux for better security
Could be that SELinux prevents the user defined in openprotect to write into the qmail queue directory.
To see if it's enabled run:
Code:
getenforce
To disable it temporarily and do some tests to see if that's the reason of your problem, run:
Code:
setenforce 0

Hi,

So from your side everything looks ok. I guess you need to contact their tech support, since you're paying for it

I think same thing...

If you don't get the solution you must to contact with openprotect help-desk..(and pay for that).

Advise: if you choose finally that way, get ready a screen connection or something like that to control what kind of things they will fix and improve your own knowledge
