Lately I've noticed I've been getting a lot of these in my maillog:
Losing ./qfhB7AvXZ20553: savemail panic
SYSERR(root): savemail: cannot save rejected email anywhere
Sendmail mail logs make little sense to me.... Here is an example:
hB438B623222: to=oliver(a)deeper.co.nz, delay=3+07:49:20, xdelay=00:00:00,
mailer=cyrus, pri=121146, relay=localhost, dsn=5.6.0, stat=Service
hB438B623222: hB7AvXZ20553: DSN: Service unavailable hB7AvXZ20553:
to=<jimmiegodwinan(a)yahoo.com>om>, delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01,
mailer=esmtp, pri=30985, relay=mx1.mail.yahoo.com
dsn=5.0.0, stat=Service unavailable
hB7AvXZ20553: hB7AvXa20553: return to sender: Service unavailable
hB7AvXa20553: to=postmaster, delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00,
mailer=cyrus, pri=31085, relay=localhost [[UNIX:
/var/imap/socket/lmtp]], dsn=5.6.0, stat=Service unavailable
hB7AvXZ20553: Losing ./qfhB7AvXZ20553: savemail panic
hB7AvXZ20553: SYSERR(root): savemail: cannot save rejected email
From what I can tell it all looks like spam bounces
that are getting
bounced back and then getting lost for some reason. Or something.
is just concerning me that maybe I'm loosing legitimate mail. I doubt
this but it is a worry.
I did a search on the web for error messages like this and they
indicated that I might not have a postmaster alias setup. Well I
don't. I have a "postmaster" mail account setup in cyrus so that spam
bounces didn't fill up my personal mailbox. I get enough spam as it
is. Which is why stuff like "to=postmaster, ... mailer=cyrus, ...
stat=Service unavailable" worries me.
If someone can help me identify what the fsck is wrong (if anything) and
make those worrisome message go away I'd be most grateful (ie gifts
would be dolled out).
