Qmail Toaster Major problem

We have a qmail toaster box that has recently starting bouncing all emails with 4.3.0 delayed and this scattered through the logs:

qmail-smtpd: qq soft reject (unable to exec qq (#4.3.0)):

Any ideas?

If I recall correctly, that can result from a permissions issue.  I'm not super familiar with Qmail Toaster per se but does it use Qmail-Scanner to tie your spam and AV scanners into the queue?

If so, I think this issue arises if the AV scanner isn't owner by the same user that runs Qmail-Scanner.

Perhaps the anti virus program was recently updated and not set to the correct user?

Thanks. I will double check this and will get back to you.
Here's the same problem that someone posted to the Qmail Toaster mailing list.


Is there anything in your mail log that mentions errors with an of your scanners?
