Qmail problem


I'm relatively new to the linux world. I am currently running RH 7.3 and qmail 1.03.

I have installed qmail (multiple times) to the best of my abilities according to life with qmail. However, I keep having the same problem. Sporadically, messages will stop being delivered from the queue to a user's mailbox.

In other words, qmailctl queue displays a number of messages (> 0) in the queue, but I can't get the messages to be delivered to a mailbox.

There does not appear to be any rhyme or reason to when this happens. The only solution I have found is to reboot the computer (what can I say, I grew up on Microsoft), however this is not a practical long term solution. Once the computer restarts, the messages are delivered to the mailbox. I tried issuing qmailctl stop and then qmailctl start, thinking this may acheive the same effect as rebooting the computer, but the message remained stuck in the queue.

From what I have read about qmail, it sounds like "qmail-send" is the program that is responsible for delivering messages...Is that program the problem? What log files should I check for more information?

Tr to wait, look if the message will be delivered next time (qmail tries to deliver messages in queue from time).
