Hi Guys,

Messages are stuck in my server's /var/spool/mqueue/ folder beyond the lifetime I have specified in confTO_QUEUERETURN (5d). Any idea why this could be? The file permissions appear fine; files in the mqueue folder show rights of:

-rw------- 1 root smmsp

This is causing an issue because the queues are slowly getting larger and larger. I'm seeing the queue size consistently growing. maillog shows entries like:

grew WorkList for /var/spool/mqueue to 28000
Just thinking outloud -- could the queue runner not be completing it's job in time? Maybe I could check with time sendmail -q -v

Any thoughts?
