Problem with qmail. Please Help!
« on: August 13, 2004, 06:00:16 AM »
Hi all,

I have installed avast for Linux on my qmail server.  I have followed the procedures in HOWTO.qmail.  After finished the installation, I found a problem that I cannot send email from 1st qmail instance to 2nd qmail instance.

From the qmail log, the error is "delivery 4: deferral: 127.0.0.1_failed_on_DATA_command./Remote_host_said:_451_Message_processing_failed:_Permission_denied/"

Then, I have checked the avastrelay log:
Aug 13 11:21:52 avastrelay[16741]: info: smtp connection with '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:21:52 avastrelay[16741]: info: closing smtp connection '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:36:05 avastrelay[16741]: info: smtp connection with '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:36:05 avastrelay[16741]: info: closing smtp connection '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:36:47 avastrelay[16741]: info: smtp connection with '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:36:47 avastrelay[16741]: info: closing smtp connection '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:42:44 avastrelay[16741]: info: smtp connection with '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:43:22 avastrelay[16741]: info: closing smtp connection '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:43:28 avastrelay[16741]: info: smtp connection with '127.0.0.1:10025'
Aug 13 11:43:28 avastrelay[16741]: info: closing smtp connection '127.0.0.1:10025'

Nothing gone wrong with avastrelay.

The log of avastd is:
Aug 12 16:44:57 avastd[22363]: info: Starting avast! daemon

Aug 12 16:44:57 avastd[22363]: info: start new process ('avast4file', pid=22380)

Then, I have tried to telent to port 10025.  After connected, I have tried to send an email:

mail from: root
250 Ok
rcpt to: root
250 Ok
data
451 Message processing failed: Permission denied
Connection closed by foreign host.

Then, I found that there is a "451 Message processing failied: Permission denied".  Do anyone know what's wrong with my setting?

Thanks a lot.

I had the same problem
got to folder /var/spool/avastrelay
and change permisions to write in the folder....

Permission denied here means that user with is used by avastrelay is unable to create temp output in spool folder /var/spool/avastrelay

Best Regards
