Check the mail logs on the mailscanner system, Imail may be causing your inbound messages to be deferred due to it connection limitations.  I have seen where the if Imail is too busy, it will cause all the mail to back up and in the case of Exim the message go to a frozen state.

Subject: Queue problem




I have a problem with my anti-spam gateway. The queue is fulling up very quickly (1600+ mails in queue).


The server's load average is <1 (0.60 - 0.80) so I suppose this is not a ressource problem.


Then I have to change the port forwarding directly to my Imail server to let the anti-spam's queue going down.


I used many tweak to maximize the efficacity of the anti-spam (mailscanner work directory in ram, dns cache server, increasing memory). I only got 1 CPU but I suppose this is not the problem because when the queue is full, the load average is under 1.


Any idea ?


PS: Sorry for my bad engllish
