I usually have the opposite. DFM files without matching QFM.

Something like this in cron;

# clean up orphaned df* files in mqueue.in older than 1 day
# no known cause for these files yet.

/etc/init.d/MailScanner stop

sleep 5

file=`find $dir -mtime +1`
for i in ${file}
    do m=`basename ${i}`
    if [ ! -e "${dir}/qf${j}" ]; then
        mv ${i} /var/tmp/
#df -hl

/etc/init.d/MailScanner start

exit 0

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
