Email bounce

Since a few weeks we get incoming mails bounced, but they do get the mail delivered. This happens once in the one or two days. A restart of the service solves it for x time.

This is what happens in the logs:

Hmm, that’s an odd one.

Are you by chance on an OpenVZ-based VPS? If so, could you paste in the contents of your /proc/user_beancounters file?

Also, which distro are you using there? And what is the output of “free -m”? Thanks!


Hi Eric,

No it’s running on a vSphere 5.1 cluster VPS.


Which Linux distribution/version are you using?

And what is the output of the command “free -m”?
