    Default Incoming mail deferred?

    I did the install (zcs-4.0.3 on a Debian box), provisioned accounts, and imported the old mailstore into Zimbra using imapsync. Now when I look at the mail queues, everything is showing up in deferred. I have tried flushing the queues, but no change. Why isn't mail being delivered?

    Looking through the logs, I am seeing multiple references to trouble in check_mail:

    Code:
    Oct 31 22:07:49 merrimac amavis[15888]: (15888-06) (!!) TROUBLE in 
    check_mail: parts_decode_ext FAILED: Error reading from file(1) utility: Bad file
     descriptor at (eval 51) line 151, <GEN31> line 2.220749-15888A1114D: 
    to=<storm@mydomain.com>, relay=127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1], delay=1, 
    status=deferred (host 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1] said: 451 4.5.0 Error in processing,
     id=15888-06, parts_decode_ext FAILED: Error reading from file(1) utility: Bad 
    file descriptor at (eval 51) line 151, <GEN31> line 2. (in reply to end of DATA 
    command))
    In /var/log/mail.info, I am seeing errors about postfix:

    Code:
    Oct 30 23:10:01 merrimac postfix/postqueue[19154]: warning: My hostname merrimac is not a fully qualified name - set myhostname or mydomain in /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.2.9/conf/main.cf
    Oct 30 23:10:01 merrimac postfix/postqueue[19154]: fatal: chdir /var/spool/postfix: No such file or directory
    main.cf has a FQDN in it.
    myhostname = merrimac.mydomain.com

    I thought everything was contained in /opt/zimbra. Why is postfox looking for /var/spool/postfix?

    Did I miss a step here?

    thanks,
    --Storm

    I'm not exactly sure what's happening, but it is not postfix that it is deffering the mail it is amavis, the spam and virus checker.

    main.cf has a FQDN in it.
    myhostname = merrimac.mydomain.com
    The usual question, I'm afraid, do you also have valid DNS records & /etc/hosts file on your system pointing to your zimbra server?

    I believe so.

    Here is /etc/hosts on the server running Zimbra:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1       localhost
    192.168.224.12  merrimac.mydomain.com   merrimac
    DNS entries for the mailserver:

    Code:
    ;; QUESTION SECTION:
    ;merrimac.mydomain.com. IN A
    
    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    merrimac.mydomain.com. 86400 IN A 192.168.224.12
    Code:
    ;; QUESTION SECTION:
    ;mydomain.com.  IN      MX
    
    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    mydomain.com. 86400 IN  MX      10 merrimac.mydomain.com.
    mydomain.com. 86400 IN  MX      12 mekong.mydomain.com.
    I also have a CNAME record for mail.mydomain.com pointing to merrimac. On my workstation, I do not have a record for merrimac in /etc/hosts, so it should be forced to use DNS.

    Could this be a HD space problem? Could you also check the tmpfs that amavis uses?
    Regards

    I rebooted the server and now here is a df of the partitions:

    Code:
    tmpfs        tmpfs     1298152         0   1298152   0% /dev/shm
    tmpfs        tmpfs     1298152        64   1298088   1% /dev
    /dev/mapper/vg00-zimbra
              reiserfs     5242716   2531852   2710864  49% /opt

    However, I am still getting the same type of errors:

    Code:

    Not really. What o/s is this? Is perl installed, up to date and only one copy of it?

    This is a Debian/unstable box. Perl is installed, version 5.8.8-5, plus a number of modules. I installed zcs-4.0.3 for Debian.
