Am having problems with system email ie: notification after creating an account. The email gets stuck in the queue and I get the following message if I try to manually send it from the queue.

Message 1BvLSS-0006cq-CV is not frozen
LOG: MAIN
== [email protected] R=lookuphost defer (-1): host lookup did not complete
Return to Mail Queue

Any suggestions would be appreciated .

Thanks

Go on, have a guess
A few questions:

1. Do you run MailScanner?

2. Do you have an A record for your hostname of the server?

3. Do you have appropriate name servers listed in /etc/resolve.conf?

4. Do you have rDNS setup on the main server IP address?
