Default Forcing delivery of deferred amavis emails...


As were many, I was bit late last week by the EOL on ClamAV on ISPConfig 2. This resulted in some 15K deferred emails in my /var/spool/amavisd/tmp folder.

Upon creating an ISPConfig 3 server and getting things switched to that box, I'd like to scan and delivery those 15K deferred emails. I'd like to think it was as easy as copying the contents of /var/spool/amavisd/tmp from the older ISPConfig 2 server to the new ISPConfig 3 server. But that doesn't seem to be the solution (or at least that's an incomplete one).

Can anyone provide information for getting these deferred emails onto, and delivered by, the ISPConfig 3 server?

Maybe you can set a transport in your old Postfix configuration so that all mails will be delivered to the new server. After you've created that transport, you can flush the queue like this:
