    hi guys im having a problem with postfix, sometimes hangs up i check the server and web server is running ok & postfix seems to be running well, but can't send & receive email...

    i check with netstat -tapun and i see lots of connections to the 25 port of the server about (20 connections)...

    i check mail logs and all mail activity just dissapear around 06:25 (checked for 2 consecutive days)

    what is this syslogd restart?????

    i try to restart postfix and shows a error of could not rw on file... /var... so i try to restart the server with $reboot, and dont reboot for 5 minutes... so finally i have to hard reset...

    what is happening...?

    this is the output of postconf -n:

    UPDATED:

    THE SYSTEM HANGS EVERY TIME IS RUN "SYSKLOGD" it is in /etc/cron.daily, but no idea how to fix it...
    i deleted gzipped logs on /var/log/ a few days ago... hope that doesn´t matter...

    any help would be apprecciated

    The virtusertable is not included in your main.cf file. Please add:

    virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable

    and restart postfix. Sysklogd is the system logger and I dont think that it is causing your problem.

    i didn´t post it but sure it is included...

    UPDATED:

    I've fixed some hard disk inodes problems with links & log files, so when sysklogd was executed, it tried to access those files crashing the system & hanging postfix.

    thk u very much u all
