Hi,

after getting may disk running out of space i have the problem, that some of my mail-adresses can´t receive mails. Other adresses of the same domain can receive. To find out what is the problem i tried to look in the maillog. But unfortunatly this file has 0 bytes...
I use qmail on suse 11.1 with Plesk.
I did already check syslogng.conf and apparmor.conf  (found this on web)
i already change owner of qmail-local to mhandlers-user.popuser

Nothing helped so far.

Please help !

It depends on your setup, maillog is built a log service with daemon tools.
You need to look at your alias list within plesk

Does your system have a /services directory?
Ps -ef |grep svcadm
ps -ef | grep qmail
Then trace it back by the parent Id till the parent Id is 1.

Because some addresses get email while others do not, suggests that your issue is not the permissions in qmail-local, or qmail-command
The issue is with the home directory permissions where the data is to be stored or if you use user quotas, the user has exceeded their quota.

Need more information on how your system is setup ......
