I am having an issue on one of my mail servers with the mail.log file that reflects the following every second.

Sep 21 08:29:43 rhino qmail: 1095773383.928183 alert: cannot start: qmail-send is already running
Sep 21 08:29:44 rhino qmail: 1095773384.958154 alert: cannot start: qmail-send is already running

I then ran the command below and found an error reflecting : 6957 ?        Z      0:00 [qmail-send <defunct>]
I am not real experienced with daemontools so go easy on me.

thanks in advance.

Actally got it working by editiing /etc/inittab and commented out svscan line and typed init q and it shut everything down except a couple of processes and I killed them then uncommented svscan and ran init q again and everything seems ok now.

thanks and I accepted your answer since no one else bothered to try this one.

thanks
