    Maybe spammers are trying to abuse your server...

    What did you do to solve it ?

    I'm having a similar problems, postfix has a log queue, only restarting postfix seems to help a bit, the server had been running for a long time without problems until Sat. I have a Fedora Core 5 server running ISPConfig

    If I restart postfix the server becomes unresponsive and has 90 waiting in 'top'.

    Anybody, any clues ?

    postqueue -p

    and see the mailqueue

    postsuper -d ID

    and delete the message it try to send

    Please make sure your server isn't an open relay.
    Do you have lots of messages in your mailqueue (
    postqueue -p
    )? Is there lots of activity in your mail log? What's in /etc/postfix/ (please strip out the comments)?
