Warning: skipping message as it has been attempted too many times

Hi all,

First of all, sorry, I think my e-mail was send multiple times as my queue was emptied.

@ Antony, it appeared that the "20160726" folder was not there. I wonder why i did not think of checking that.
After creating it with the correct permissions the queue was processed. I wonder if the problem will repeat this night as I could not find any errors about the system not being able to create the directory.
Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance.

Look in /var and work your way down the path given above to see what is missing (or, more likely, has the wrong ownership / permissions).


Someone has stolen all the toilets from New Scotland Yard.  Police say they 
have absolutely nothing to go on.
