qmail Problem

Post by Beispielbenutzer S.u.S.E. Linux 4.4. » Sun, 06 Jul 1997 04:00:00



Hi outhere,

Trying to put qmail to work, I have the following problem:

Doing the "Local-local-Test" according to the INSTALL- File:

"14. Local-local test: Send yourself an empty message. (Replace ``me''
    with your username. Make sure to include the ``to:'' colon.)
       % echo to: me | /var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject
    The message will show up immediately in ~/Mailbox, and syslog will
    show something like this:"

lets my syslog say:


Jul  5 15:47:35 canopus qmail: delivery 11: deferral: Temporary_failure_in_qmail-lspawn./
                                                      **********************************

What does that mean, and how to fix it ?

Bye,
Harald

qmail-lspawn forks a process to perform a local delivery. For some
reason it's not able to do that, and it thinks the problem is
temporary. I don't know why it doesn't say what the problem is,
though, so I'd have to look at the source. Your best bet is to join
the qmail mailing list by sending mail to

1. QMAIL problem: "qmail-inject: fatal: read error"

Hi,

I've just installed qmail, and when I send mail to myself I get the
error:

        "qmail-inject: fatal: read error"

from my mailer ("Mail").

I've installed qmail 3 times before on the same OS (FreeBSD) without
problems, so I've obviously done something stupid.  Any clues?
