    Default [SOLVED] Still being spammed by my own server

    Hi guys,

    I'm now commited to fix this issue. I'm still being spammed by zimbramon.

    I receive around 200 emails every day that shows me that zimbra services started or stopped but all of them with different dates.

    Where is this information stored? Which is the cron entry that dispatches these emails?

    Thanks!

    I agree those are irritating. I only get 3 a day so I shouldn't complain, I guess, but I still would love to tell Zimbra specifically what notifications I want and which I really don't need.
    Cheers,

    The problem is that it must be a bug or smth. Why i would want to receive a notification of smth that happened a year ago?

    I really hope someone from zimbra could help me with this. It's annoying!

    This is still happening. I offer a beer to who could guide me into the service that is dispatching the emails.

    Thanks,

    From the ones going crazy like me a solution is to clear /var/log/zimbra.log .

    This could be a logrotate problem. I promise that will dedicate some time into this and report back with a solution if i can fix it.

    Ok. Found the solution and the cause but not why it happends. At least it's a start.

    zimbramon sends mail notfications stored on the zimbra.log . Somehow a bad upgrade made logrotate to stop working on this log. zimbra.log became 2Gb in size and it actually stored a lot of past events.

    The solution for this was to remove old zimbra.log, change it's permission to zimbra.zimbra and then reinitialize logrotate.

    Everything is working fine now.

    Code:
    $ rm -rf /var/log/zimbra.log
    $ touch /var/log/zimbra.log
    $ chown zimbra.zimbra /var/log/zimbra.log
    Why this happens? I have no clue. But will keep looking as soon as i have some extra free time.

    Thanks,
