them into the "real" queue directory. So far everything works okay. I get all 
the messages scanned and put into the "real" queue directory, but from there no
messages are delivered, locally or remotely. 
When sending a message from another host or locally i get something similar to
the following in my maillog:
Mar  1 21:02:39 u15151422 MailScanner[10150]: New Batch: Scanning 1 messages, 58
5 bytes
Mar  1 21:02:39 u15151422 MailScanner[10150]: MCP Checks: Starting
Mar  1 21:02:49 u15151422 MailScanner[10150]: Virus and Content Scanning: Starti
Mar  1 21:02:50 u15151422 MailScanner[10150]: Uninfected: Delivered 1 messages
There is no mentioning of qmail. I find this very strange... Before i would get
a complete history.
Checking the queue status i get:
[me at bubu bin]# ./qmail-qstat
messages in queue: 31
messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0
And qmail-qread returns nothing...
[me at bubu bin]# ./qmail-qread
[me at bubu bin]#
Looking into the real queue directory all messages seem to be at S4, waiting
for the qmail-send to kick in.
There are no message hung in the "" directory.
I've compared all permissions in my queue directory with a post that i found
No discrepancies found.
Processes all look fine.

i do not have the qmailctrl script installed on my box, but using splogger i 
supose everything is logged into maillog. 
Trying to force the immediate delivery or error message by sending an alarm 
signal to qmail-send does not produce any output in my maillog file.
[me at bubu bin]# kill -s SIGALRM 9355
I wonder if using a supervised qmail is the only way to get more log 
information or if i'm missing something here. I guess it must be some 
permission problem, or a simple configuration issue.
