    Why does this group of messages appear in my /var/log/maillog every 5 minutes 24/7?

    spam

    it has got something to do with either the email server settings. check the cron jobs also which runs repeatedly. it will help.

    I did. I commented out all the crontab entries and I still received those messages every 5 minutes.

    It's like something is stuck in the exim mail queue, but I can't find it if it is. If that's what it is where would it be?

    What OS and version is on the system?
    Code:
    # cat /etc/*release
    What is your full cPanel version number?
    Code:
    # cat /usr/local/cpanel/version && echo
    Is the RPM version of SpamAssassin installed?
    Code:
    # rpm -q spamassassin

    No I don't think so. This issue is not that sa is not working. It is working. I'm just trying to figure out why that set of messages keeps appearing in the log every 5 minutes.

    Thanks

    # cat /etc/*release
    CentOS release 5.2 (Final)
    # cat /usr/local/cpanel/version && echo
    11.24.5-STABLE_38506
    # rpm -q spamassassin
    package spamassassin is not installed

    Thanks

    The output, after testing and confirmation, appears to be the same as what is triggered by chkserv.d service monitoring of the daemon "spamd"; this would explain why similar output is seen at regular intervals.

    To manually trigger a check of "spamd", one could use the following command, optionally followed by checking the log file at "/var/log/maillog":
    Code:
    # /scripts/restartsrv_spamd --check
    The above command may not show output unless there is an error; checking the log file could be used for additional confirmation:
    Code:
    # less /var/log/maillog
    To confirm if "spamd" is being monitored, the following command could be used:
    Code:
    # grep spamd /etc/chkserv.d/chkservd.conf
    The above command may output a line like one of the following, where 1 is monitoring enabled and 0 is monitoring disabled:
    spamd:1
    spamd:0

    To verify if spamd is running, the following may be used:
    Code:
    # /scripts/restartsrv_spamd --status
