Description Greg Woods 2005-09-26 16:53:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
The attached spam, when inserted into the active queue spool area, causes qmgr to exit, leaving the system in a state where it will accept messages but nothing is delivered. A corrupt mail *should* get moved to the corrupt area and should not cause all delivery through the system to cease. Here is the log entry:

Sep 26 09:04:37 mscan6 postfix/qmgr[18101]: fatal: bad extra offset  file active
/2/2DE3E114020
Sep 26 09:04:38 mscan6 postfix/master[18036]: warning: process /usr/libexec/post
fix/qmgr pid 18101 exit status 1

The system tries to restart qmgr, but it exits as soon as it hits this message again, and nothing queued behind it is ever delivered.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
postfix-2.1.5-5

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Stop postfix
2.Place the queue file referenced by the above URL into /var/spool/postfix/active/2/2DE3E114020
3. Restart postfix
  

Actual Results:  Sep 26 09:04:37 mscan6 postfix/qmgr[18101]: fatal: bad extra offset  file active
/2/2DE3E114020
Sep 26 09:04:38 mscan6 postfix/master[18036]: warning: process /usr/libexec/post
fix/qmgr pid 18101 exit status 1

Expected Results:  I would have expected a corrupt message to be moved under /var/spool/postfix/corrupt so that remaining queued messages could be delivered.

Additional info:

It's a high priority problem when it happens, but it's only happened once in more than a year of running this system.
