I'm hoping someone has a suggestion for me as to how to fix this problem.
It was suggested that the problem was being caused by Postfix, and I sent
a mail or 2 to the postfix list. They in turn suggested that it's a
mailman problem. To confirm this, I killed the postfix process and started

I get the following error from Exim:

2000-11-14 19:30:57 unexpected disconnection while reading SMTP data from
localhost.fingers.co.za (snow.fingers.co.za) []

This is specifically when qrunner cron runs (I disabled the cron and ran
it manually for debugging purposes).

If there's any other logs that you'd like me to check, or anything else to
try, please let me know.

Once again, qrunner lockfiles persist, 'cos qrunner can't successfully
complete, and the viscious circle starts again.

I'm running FreeBSD 4.1--STABLE with postfix-19991231.08 and

Any suggestions?
