Hello,

Spamd is restarting constantly but failing to recover.

The output of:
Code:
systemctl restart spamd
is:
Code:
spamd.service failed because a configured resource limit was exceeded
When I issue command:
Code:
systemctl status spamd.service
I get:
Code:
● spamd.service - Apache SpamAssassin™ deferral daemon

Note that both Enable Apache SpamAssassin™ spam filter and Enable Apache SpamAssassin™ Spam Box delivery for messages marked as spam (user configurable) are enabled in tweak setting. I also installed OSM from Configserver.com

I would appreciate your insight.

Thank you
