    Default [SOLVED] amavisd fails to start

    I'm having problems to start amavisd, It was working before but I don't know what happened.

    Status after reboot
    Code:
    zimbra@intranet:~$ zmcontrol status
    Host mail.mydomain.com
            antispam                Stopped
                    zmamavisdctl is not running
            antivirus               Stopped
                    zmamavisdctl is not running
            ldap                    Running
            logger                  Running
            mailbox                 Running
            mta                     Running
            snmp                    Running
            spell                   Running
            stats                   Running
    zimbra@intranet:~$
    Code:
    zimbra@intranet:~$ zmamavisdctl start
    Starting amavisd...failed.
    zimbra@intranet:~$
    I do I need to allow any special port in the firewall?

    Where's the amavisd log file located?

    Please check /var/log/zimbra.log to see why Amavis is not starting.

    I think mistakenly I have installed EXIM4, but I have removed now! Maybe it installed also a new amavisd.

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    ps aux | grep zimbra
    If any processes left kill them off nicely
    zmcontrol start
    It may be a old process running so the PID does not match what ZCS thinks it should be.

    I manage to correct it!

    I don't know how... with ubuntu I did install a package with EXIM4 and another amavisd, maybe mailx package!

    Glad you are up and running now

    Now if your would update your profile with the following output so we know which version of ZCS you are running that would be great
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
