Posted on 2007-10-08
I have redhat linux working as mail server sendmail mail as a MTA with MailScanner but now a days lot's and lot's of messages getting stored in the incoming queue directory /var/spool/mqueue.in
1. and think due to this lots of messages in the var/spool/mqueue.in ,mails reaching to the users inbox is getting too much of delayed
2. sendmail is wasting more time to check again and again on this undeliverd messages in the var/spool/mqueue.in due to this sendmail or MailScanner not able to address the recent messages
please tell me how to make this incoming Queue Directory messages processed fast and if undelivered messages stays for more than a day then the queue directory should be cleard with such messages , please help me to config the above in the MailScan.conf .
