thanks for the reply, I'm very happy to provide the mail log file. The
mailserver is quite busy plus amavisd which tends to fill the log file.
Do you want me to filter every line that is associated with the email
I'm referring or you're after the raw log file + the mail header at
recipient MTA? I can provide both but just wanted to make sure which.
Re mail does flow when the amavis daemon runs, but the mail does not
flow through the amavis daemon: not exactly like what I have in mind.
Say amavisd has been dead for a few hours and I have a few thousand
messages in postfix queue waiting to be delivered to locahost:10024, as
soon as I start the amavis, email will start to flow to 10024 and then
gets injected back to 10025, at this circle, I still can see emails
going to localhost 10024 and 10025, but there are certain emails that
didn't appear to go to 10024 according to the mail header at the end
user MTA, I can also confirm this from the mail log (by going through
line by line for each step from the first injection).
