Hello, I have a problem with FreeBSD and cyrus-imapd. I have never been able to solve this. The problem is intermittent and it happens from time to time after a system rebooot.
Jun 17 00:00:11 postino sm-mta: h5GM0A7T000201: [EMAIL PROTECTED], delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=cyrusv2, pri=31024, relay=localhostv, dsn=4.4.1, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by localhost actually looks like the /var/imap/socket/lmtp is not accessible but this is weird, in fact my cyrus configuration is perfect and the file permissions are correct, in particular: srwxrwxrwx 1 root cyrus 0 Feb 9 09:47 /var/imap/socket/lmtp This behaviour is unpredictable and it happens after a reboot to the mail server. this is my cyrus configuration into sendmail.cf Mcyrusv2, P=[IPC], F=lsDFMnqXzA@/:|m, S=EnvFromSMTP/HdrFromL, R=EnvToL/HdrToL, E=\r\n, T=DNS/RFC822/SMTP, U=cyrus:cyrus, A=FILE /var/imap/socket/lmtp (note that I tryed with U=cyrus:cyrus and without it as well) When this problem happens to me I have to do this modification to solve it: Mcyrusv2, P=/usr/local/cyrus/bin/deliver, F=lsDFMnqXA@/:|m, S=EnvFromSMTP/HdrFromL, R=EnvToL/HdrToL, E=\r\n, T=DNS/RFC822/SMTP, U=cyrus:cyrus, A=deliver -e -m $h -- $u I have to call deliver directly even if this is very ugly, but it works. If after a few hours I Come back to the lmtp cyrus-sendmail configuration the system comes back working using /var/imap/socket/lmtp I really don't know how to solve this. I am sure my configuration is correct. I use sendmail + cyrus on many boxes, many flavours of unix, Linux, SGI, Solaris, but I had this problem only with FreeBSD since version 5.0 Anyone had an experience like mine ? It seems I can't find a solution and this is really overwhelming since in this way my mail server si quite unstable. A Reboot can simply screw the whole mail system. Could the problem be related to /var/imap/socket/lmtp file and soft updates ?? I ma actually running latest sendmail + latest cyrus version thank you very much Rick _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
