False positive on LF_QUEUE_ALERT?

Post by logout »

Since last night we've been receiving hourly alerts that LF_QUEUE_ALERT is higher than 400, but every time I check the mail queue there's only 5-10 messages in it.

I've checked the /var/spool/exim* directories and same thing.
I've checked /var/log/messages and see no evidence of spam.
I've checked WHM mail server statistics also.

Any ideas please?

The alerts were coming from an old virtual machine that has accidentally been powered on. Doh!
