    When I look into the mail queue, there are many mails left in there. If I try to deliver them, it shows errors &Message 17JA4c-0004F9-00 is not frozen

    delivering message 17JA4c-0004F9-00

    LOG: 0 MAIN

    == root@xxxx.xxxx.net T=local_delivery defer (13): Permission denied: failed to chdir to /root

    Return to Mail Queue

    &


    I'm using WHM/Cpanel, and this is the error I'm getting from WHM.

    Do you have any idea?

    make sure /etc/hosts & /etc/resolv.conf , DNS, and your main domain are valid and functioning properly.

    then in WHM -& server setup -& Change where system mails go

    set your email address in all the fields and press save

    then in WHM -& email -& mail queue -& deliver now

    Ok, All of the above was/is correct but on a daily basis I have 80 failed emails in my Mail Queue.

    I know where the emails are coming from. We used to sell dialup Internet access and our users had email addys on a certain domain. I have set that domains root address to :fail: Is this why our mail queue is filling up? I do not want any of these emails and I would like to just bounce them. Will the mail Queue work like that? If not is it possible to setup a Cron to delete all messages in the Queue nightly? If so how do I do this?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Matt

    Instead of :fail:, do :blackhole: and the emails will be sent into a blackhole instead of sitting on the server with the fail.
