Postfix server: Mails are sent to queue
emails sent and received by the mail server are sent into queue but not delivered or any mails in the queue received by the email client.
Please help me fix this. The machine got restarted due to power failures before this issue happened.
Postfix: Temporary failure
After a system crash (caused by overloaded on Power Source) my Postfix is not working properly, symptoms:
- sent and receive (SMTP & POP) work normal, no error
- no mail received
- in mail log there is “temporary failure” words
- look at the log detail
- this error is not caused by postfix software, but by it’s supported softwares
- make sure mysql (database), amavis (antivirus), spamassassin (spam blocker) are running
Here’s an example of failed amavis:

After you have edited your config files ( main.cf & master.cf) and make sure there are no references to amavis, you must requeue the messages already in postfix.
run tail -n 100 /var/log/mail - you should not see relay = vscan or amavis
