Recently, I have started receiving the following failure notice from the qmail Mailer Daemon:
Hi. This is the qmail-send program at domain
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
./Maildir: No such file or directory
I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long.
--- Below this line is a copy of the message.
The body of the message that failed to send contains the following:
Dr.Web (R) update details:
Update server: update.us.drweb/unix/500
Update has begun at Sun Oct 25 14:30:02 2009
Update has finished at Sun Oct 25 14:30:49 2009
Following files has been updated:
This seems to indicate that an automated update message from drweb regarding an update that has been made is being written to ./Maildir, which cannot be found.
I am using Plesk. According to http://kb.parallels.com/en/970, notifications can be disabled by making an appropriate change to the database. The row that they refer to did not exist in the misc table, however, and I am reticent to start adding rows to the psa database.
So there are two issues:
- I am getting notification of a drweb update, something which I don't really need an email about, and would prefer to disable (and something which I only started receiving recently for no readily apparent reason); and
- The notification is failing to send because the ./Maildir directory can't be found
