My take on a stuck message quarantine...

Postby uncltom » Sun Sep 12, 2010 8:28 am

Once or twice we have had an issue where messages were quarantined but no report was generated. This usually resulted from a corrupt database after a power failure (or bad hardware where the computer froze up) and the mailcleaner db was hosed up.

We would fix the corruption and the messages were in quarantine but the user did not get the e-mail report and after the corrupt entries were flushed the messages didnt show up in the user quarantine.

So I came up with a down and dirty way to resubmit the spam so the end user would get a quarantine report with all the messages and the messages would show up in the user quarantine too.

See http://forum.mailcleaner.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1189 for my improved method.
