RaQ4 SMTP is very slow

My SMTP Connection is very slow. I have no idea how to solve this problem. Server has been reacting strange for the past few days.

This morning it stoped working all together. After 20 min. and a reboot of the server it came back on-line but is sow slow my costumers are bugging me about is.

I have limited knowlage of servers.

1. In shell, type mailq

You can see how many emails are queued.

Or manually check:


2. in shell, not in SU mode, type pine
You will see all the bounce back emails.
Helps determine if your server is being used as a spamming source. You can also delete all the bouncebacks/

3. Check your /var parition being typing df in shell.

You do not need to reboot the server to restart sendmail on Raqs.
You can restart all the useful goodies in /etc/rc.d/init.d/

PM me if you want me to take a look.

Tnx, turnes out it was a NameServer problem. I asked someone I know to take a look.

Our network nameservers pointed to a no longer excisting server. Changed it and now it works.
