Default ISPConfig3, mail issues

Hi,
I'm experiencing issues with e-mail on my server.
I setup the ISPConfig3 as "usual" (by following a tutorial) and everything has worked out great!
Untill now.......

Mail is queing and log is filling with:

Nov 24 21:44:31 hostname amavis[14441]: (14441-04) (!!)TROUBLE in check_mail: parts_decode_ext FAILED: file(1) utility (/usr/bin/file) error: run_command (open pipe): Can't fork at /usr/lib/perl/5.10/IO/File.pm line 66. at /usr/sbin/amavisd-new line 2892.

Any pointers on this one?

I've tried this several times.
It keeps crashing, and I have to get it up and running again.
Installed Monit to do the restarting aswell.

Why does this happen?

I think I solved it by rebooting the entire server....

The mailsystem will not work if you use a domainYou have to change:

mydomain = mydomain.com

to:

mydomain = isp.mydomain.com

and restart postfix. You can not use a domain as mydomain or myhostname in a postfix virtual setup that is used for email accounts.

Then I created Client , Email account, DNS(Manual) as per instructions given in your Manual.

My request is if you can provide the following
