Can you restart the server?

I think this would be the best way to stop overlapping qmail processes. When qmail is running properly then we can take a look at the queue.

The RAM usage is low, the CPU usage is 5-10%, harddisk is 30-40% full. I don`t understand why this happens. There are still many messages in the queue. I disabled the spam and clam in /var/qmail/control/simscan and set to NO - > after that qmailctl cdb but teh problem remains

Hi all,
Unfortunately my qmailtoaster (6.9 i386) works not properly since yesterday.
I found yesterday more than 4000 emails in the remote queue.
after manually freshclam and restart serivices and the server the situation was the same. I deleted the queue and it seems to be ok, but 2 hours later I see 70 real emails in the remote queue. Can anybody help me for the troubleshooting. I will appreciate any help or information to resolve the case.
Many of our customers have problems with the email communication.
