    Spamd is constantly failing.

    I have been using my Server for a decent while, All of a sudden of the last month it has decided that it wants to play a game.

    "Spamd" keeps failing and automagically restarts.

    It restarts and works, But then Fails once again a few hours later. One morning I woke up to 7 error messages with the same service.
    By Restarting Exim it resolves the issue but it happens hours later.
    I have tried mostly of what I can think of.

    Does anyone have any other thoughts on this issue and how it can be resolved?

    Cheers

    I've found this to be indicative of a large amount of spam being sent to the server. Check your server load - if it is high when spamd fails this is a likely cause.

    Well at the moment I am receiving a message from spamd every 10 minutes or so. Not sure, But will investigate that further.

    Is it a vps and are you running out of memory? Have you tried reinstalling spamd in the server?
