I have a friend who works at a small shop who reports exactly the same
issue with Zimbra, s..ll...ooo..wwww...
I'm glad to know that I wasn't alone, even though I was positive I was
<pre wrap="">3) ClamAV. Do note how much email I said we dealt with a minute. We
didn't get a great deal of email. Maybe 2000 email a day? Not overly
much. However as the ClamAV database would grow, if you restarted
ClamAV or Zimbra eventually it would take too long for ClamAV to start
and would not listen on the port assigned and would make mail fail to
deliver. (Ouch huh?)
In defense of CLAMAV I can say that we run it on our SMTP server (not on
the IMAP or groupware server which seems like a bad idea). It works
well and is pretty stable. If your CLAMAV was causing you this problem
then Zimbra must have boloxed the setup or you just had a bad version.
It was a bad ClamAV version that they shipped. I replaced it with a
more current version (it was .80.7 or some really old version). Then
it was working again without it dying on it's own or anything.<br>
