My qmail server is not delivering new e-mail.

I was recently asked to help fix a server with this problem.

It was a qmail server with vpopmail, simscan, clamav, and spamassassin.

The problem turned out to be that ClamAV was crashed and no monitoring was in place to notify the SA.

Not that ClamAV crashes often.

The source of the problem was that the permissions on the clamd.log had been changed and clamd existed when it could no longer write to it's log file under /var/log
