2) The problem is that your server receives to much mail for the currently installed spam scanning and antivirus solution with clamscan and spamassassin. Check your mail log if you get higher email traffic, e.g. a spam.
  • Oops big letters came as I did not preview, ancase fixed.
  • I have received the same mail 3 x during the day, normally indicating pop3 disconnectin and huge mail on bad lines - however this case i have <1ms latency to server on same LAN segment. Thus I was thinking an re-lapse in the bug of clam were it re-serviced already scanned mails over and over again!
  • This last scenario seem more likely as It takes AGES to work through the mail Q,
  • Yes it could be the case - what is the solution? this has not happened before on this site as I can indicate with Stats this is an Small site! Normal last week this time's figures.

I am convinced that Sumething "Broke" either an update came in or some other misshap. as the traffic to the server seem to be normal etc.
