Plesk Mail Spool Maxed Out

Jul 9, 2009

I upgraded to Plesk 9.2.1 and found that between the security upgrades they moved all the contents of /usr/local/psa/handlers to tmpfs, the problem is that I have a small swap file ( about 500 MB ) so all thos folders got inside that space, so far Ive managed to make the tmpfs more than twice the original size, but mounted points ( /usr/local/psa/handlers/spool ) remains at the same size of 500 MB any idea how can I make this larger?

Exim Failed Messages

Nov 15, 2007

We're on a VPS and lately we've been getting a few 'exim has failed...A restart was attempted automagicly.' messages. Support indicated that we're hitting our limits and suggested that we move to a bigger package or remove accounts. I only have 2 active sites on this account. We're new at this and don't know if there's anything else we can do.

Does anyone know what could be causing exim to fail?

Exim Keeps Sending Thousands Of Messages To Non-valid Email.

Feb 14, 2007

For the last 5 days, exim has been retrying to resend email to a recipent every
1 millisecond.

As result, logs are huge, and load is being affected.

So I'd like to know how can I set/configure exim to ingore sending to any
email I'd tell it.

I mean is there any config file I can look into, to set a ignore list, or even
how to have it so that it retries sending every 1 hour, instead of every 1 millisecond.

Feb 25, 2008

Exim ACL To Send Mailer Daemon Messages To ":fail:"

Apr 18, 2007

One of my users is receiving way too many Mailer Daemon messages and his mailbox is full. I've had this problem from time to time and I am trying to figure out how to block mailer daemon messages for a specific domain so that they do not even get on the mailing queue...much like when you set a default address to ":fail:". So I came up with this:

deny message = The original message did not come from this site.
condition = ${if eq{$sender_address}{}{yes}{no}}
condition = ${if eq{$local_part}{userdomain.com}{yes}{no}}
log_message = Refused a bounce message for userdomain.com

However, this doesn't help. The emails are still going to the mailing queue and when I look at the Exim log I see the usual error message saying that the email was blocked because the account has run out of space.

Exim Server - Being Used To Relay Spam?

Dec 3, 2008

Exim server - being used to relay spam?

Hoping someone can help here. I have a web server running a couple of sites, has been for a couple of years now. With one of the domains, I have an email forwarder setup through cpanel to forward mail sent to a specific address at that domain to my gmail account (it's a "contact us" type address). I don't think the email address is listed on the web anywhere.

Anyway, I am noticing a lot of spam emails being sent to that address, from that same address and they all appear to be relayed through my exim server legitimately. Obviously they aren't (as I am not sending them).

I am only familiar with sendmail, and am unsure about where to look for any possible hacks to my exim server. Can someone point me in the right direction? I want to stop these spam messages being sent, asap.

Exim Load Is High And TONS Of Spam

Mar 8, 2008

after noticing the SQL errors on my sites, I went in to take a closer look.

First thing I noticed was my server load was at 200! This was all due to EXIM!

I stopped exim and then watched my load go back down to like 1... then started it, and it gradually rose again.

After using the Exim Cheat Sheet...

I discovered I had over 7000 messages frozen in my que and a few thousand not frozen.

After erasing all of the frozen messages because they were all spam, I am left wondering what I can do to stop this from happening again...

1. Is this spam being SENT FROM me? Or TO me?

2. Regardless of the answer to #1, how do I make it stop? I don't host any significant sites, and the server only has a few sites on it. None of the domains match up with anything I have anything to do with, so its all worthless and nobody on my server heavily uses their email through me.

What do I do? This is the second time I have had my system with a load this high and after the first time, I paid a chunck for more RAM.
