qmail wont send messages


I've installed qmail on my server. It says that it is running fine. I send messages via SMTP or with `qmail-inject`, but they wont ever send. I try `qmailctl queue` and it prints the pending messages, it just wont ever send them. Why?

Can you post your qmail log files. It is quite often a permissions or routing problem issue.

Did you follow a specific guide to setting it up?

I can't post the log files because I don't know where they are! The only place I know where to look is /var/log/qmail/smtpd, and it is empty.

This is the guide I used: http://www.lifewithqmail.org/lwq.html

Do you not have either of these?:
/var/log/qmail/current
/var/log/qmail/smtpd/current

Can you post the output of:
qmailctl stat

I fixed it. It was a combination of broken scripts, mis configured configuration files, etc...
I just read the webpage a few more times, checking everthing as I went.

Someone should probably make a script that does EVERY thing for you. It wouldn't be too hard.

Sounds good, why not post a link back here when you've finished.

One thing to remember though, it is more difficult to spot problems in the future when you don't have an overall view of how things fit together.
