    Hi,

    I have installed a postfix mail queue following the howto the Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10) w/ISPConfig
    Unfortunately I do seem to be able to delete mail out the mailqueue

    Any idea what I am doing wrong.

    I am using webmin 1.441

    You can see mail in the queue by entering:
    Code:
    postqueue -p
    and flush all mail in the queue by entering:
    Code:
    postqueue -f

    Tried the two commands (as admin on the prompt) but no luck
    the queue does not get flushed

    If I understand You correctly now You know that there is mail in the queue ? Or is it empty ?
    What do the mail logs say ? Any errors ?

    the mail remains in the queue.
    in the Mail.err log file I see this

    Mar 19 15:23:00 ubuntu-mussormanagement postfix/postqueue[7326]: fatal: usage: postqueue -f | postqueue -i queueid | postqueue -p | postqueue -s site
    Mar 19 15:23:10 ubuntu-mussormanagement postfix/postqueue[7329]: fatal: usage: postqueue -f | postqueue -i queueid | postqueue -p | postqueue -s site

    To delete all mails in the queue, run
    Code:
    postsuper -d ALL
