Sadly I should have asked the question, why was amavisd offline to start with....

It is running now but mails are still getting caught in the queue with errors. When sending an email through roundcube, the server load went sky high and caused it to become completely unresponsive. The load went up beyond 50.

It's now down to:
Code:
uptime
 23:01:30 up 33 days, 21:28,  1 user,  load average: 0.59, 0.31, 0.45
uptime
 23:02:26 up 33 days, 21:29,  1 user,  load average: 0.23, 0.26, 0.43
uptime
 23:03:06 up 33 days, 21:29,  1 user,  load average: 0.12, 0.22, 0.41





The queue looks like this:
Code:

The free memory looks like this:
Code:
free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        511312     494168      17144          0       1764      29508
-/+ buffers/cache:     462896      48416
Swap:       498004     497860        144
Is it possible a new mail gets dealt with either in or out amavis kicks in and can't handle it all?
