This is regarding qmail + vpopmail 5.3.12 running under tcpserver, on FreeBSD 4.6.1.
My server was bouncing *everything* with 5.7.1, that is including stuff that should have been delivered to domains hosted by my server. I panicked and just rebooted my server (because reboot is very quick and it is the most reliable way to fix a bunch of things quickly without having to take time to identify a problem), and thus lost some of the evidence. But I am suspicious based on previous expeirences that if a certain process dies that some process starts responding to all smtp requests with 5.7.1. Or is there any other obvious reason why qmail might go into a permanent 5.7.1 mode? Thanks for any thoughts, and sorry to be so lacking in info. I did do a quick ps when I discovered the problem and I'm pretty sure that the tcpserver process involving qmail-smtpd was probably not there. I only remembered it should have been there after rebooting and doing another ps. Is there some default mode for smtp connections that takes over under such a circumstance? Thanks, Kurt Bigler
