Re: Sendmail queue stalled

Basic debugging when you have a problem:
Look at the machine:
  Look at processes
  Look at users
  See what's going on with the machine.

The first thing you could have noticed was a very high
load average.  Oh, it's (dangerously), running ftpd.

Offline, I suggested raising the queueLA and refuseLA,
but really: Move FTP of the freaking machine.
