Greetings smile Thanks again Zhang for a very elegant unix mail server solution.

I have iRedMail 0.8.5 running in a future-prod environment. This issue would be critical if the server was deployed, but it won't be for another month, so thankfully it isn't too bad!

The server has 2GB of RAM with 4GB of swap space and a quad core processor.

My iRedMail instance has simply stopped being able to receive mail. /var/log/mail.log is updated when I try to send mail from RoundCube (using SMTP on the machine) but there is no logging done when I try send mail TO an iRedMail account on the machine. I get an e-mail back some 12 hours layer stating "MAIL DELIVERY TO <iredmail account on domain> DELAYED".

To my knowledge I haven't changed ANYTHING related to iRedMail, and I have DNS configured successfully, so I am somewhat stumped here. It was working fine maybe 7 days ago, and sometime this week it simply stopped.

Here is the content of the message sent to me (saying delivery is delayed) from when I try to send e-mail to an iRedMail account (including headers and original e-mail): (my.account@domain.com is my iRedMail email account)

Re: iRedMail domains/accounts suddenly unable to receive e-mail

It's hard to say what the problem is.
Delayed delivery could be caused by many issues, the notification email doesn't mention the reason at all, so i have no idea.


Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
