I installed postfix + dovecot + mysql + amavisd + spamassasin. Everything works fine (mail is sent and received) except that the received mail stays too long in the queue (for about 15 minutes) before it gets to the user mailbox. If I run

# postsuper -r ALL && postfix flush
postsuper: Requeued: 1 message

the message is immediately removed from queue and successfully sent to the user mailbox.

The content of /etc/postfix/master.cf file is

    Can you trace what happens to it in the log (/var/log/mail.log)? You can trace job IDs there. – Halfgaar Jan 21 '15 at 16:45
  • message logs please – ADM Jan 21 '15 at 17:22

Problem solved - wrong socket file used in amavis configuration, thus causing messages to be deffered.

Thank you for your time.

    You can also accept your own answer and I suggest to do that (clicking the pipe icon on the left side). – peterh Jan 22 '15 at 9:30
