    Using Ubuntu 9.04 and ISPConfig 3 i noticed that I was having alot of network traffic and couldn't explain it. This is from the syslog

    Why isn't failtoban not blocking these connections? I also just upgraded to the lastest version of ispconfig 3

    This is the automatic system monitoring that chechs every 5 minutes if the ftp daemon is working. This are connection from localhost and they do not cause any network traffic as no data is transferred.

    Ok found the cause its due to someone forwarding an email that I do not have the bandwidth to suport. Can you tell me how to flush the mail Q so it doesn't keep trying to send these messages? I looked through the postfix commands and I can't find what I'm looking for. Also is there a setting to block email file size?


    Well when stopping postfix bandwidth goes back to normal. Can someone help me or point me in the right direction?

    To remove all mails from queue, run:

    postsuper -d ALL

    I just wanted to say thank you for your help. I assumed that I could have deleted those by message id instead of the "ALL" command. Anyways i can't check the lights on the router and switch till i get home by I can tell that one of my websites is loading fast. So Thank you!!!
