I’m rather new to dealing with qmail and Linux, so please be patient with me. I have an issue with a specific email address owner complaining that incoming emails are being received slowly and sometimes, they come though only a day or so after the they have been sent. What I would like to do is to display, say, an SMTP log of the interaction between the emails coming into this problematic email address.
Where should I start looking to begin resolving this issue? I’ve already run “qmHandle -l” to see what’s in the queue, and it notifies me that there are over 90 emails in the remote queue, and about 7 in the local queue.
In short, what I’m trying to do is just view a log of all the traffic between this problematic email address and all incoming emails to this email address.
You didn’t say what distribution you are on, so I will assume a redhat variant for this example:
grep /var/log/qmail/send/current "<local_users_email>"
For realtime viewing use the following:
tail -f /var/log/qmail/send/current | grep "<local_users_email>"
