Today i noticed my mail system do not work. I'm using 126.96.36.199 version, on CentOS 5.4 (x64). Two days ago i made yum upgrade. It worked fine till today. When i check the mailbox seems empty (there was no problem with authentication). When i login to the box i have found amavis is dead. So i start it again with: /etc/init.d/amavisd start After that i made /etc/init.d/amavisd status and the result is: amavisd (pid 27364 27048 25059) is running... amavis-milter is stopped Is it ok? After that operation there still was no any mail when i authenticate, so i made "manual update" process. After that... All my emails appear on the mailbox, and i downloaded them (with thunderbird). What can be wrong? Is there any way to "skip" amavis somehow? I read all over the net that it makes maaaany problems for a lot of users (i checked config file etc., it's far away from KISS ideology that i love).
