Some mails just stay in Queue.

Durga Prasad Malyala
Hello all,
I am seeing a peculiar problem in on of our servers. Some mails in the
queue stay there forever. of course they are very few just 20 or 30 in
a month.
most of them are from MAILER-DAEMON

3291B6063914!   54880 Mon Jun 17 17:32:24  MAILER-DAEMON
                                         [hidden email]

2FF8A601819C!   29081 Mon Jun 17 18:44:24  MAILER-DAEMON
                                         [hidden email]

20D90601819D! 1041140 Tue Jun 18 16:14:20  [hidden email]
                                         [hidden email]
some are from others as well.

I've tried everything like postfix flush, restarting the services etc.
still they stay there.
Any hints please?

Thanks

Usually, postqueue -p gives the reason why the messages a queued.

Anything your side?

Hi, 
Thanks for your reply.  It's not giving any extra output.  
I'm getting same list of queued mails.

That's what the "hold" queue is for.

Don't put these messages "on hold" (the "!" after the queue id
means "on hold").

Postfix does not put messages "on hold" by default.  So
you're choosing to do that by some means.  Don't do that
if you don't want to.

Thanks for reply Victor. 
Beats me why it is going into hold queue in the first place.  
I'm using rspamd if that is any clue. But it happens only for very few mails.

I don't use rspamd, but some milters with a "quarantine" action will
put the mail on hold rather than moving the mail to a dedicated
quarantine.
