Kerio 6.3.1 running on CentOS/Linux server

Discovered a problem today with our mailserver queue

The admin console would freeze up when trying to view the queue
Looked into the opt/kerio/mailserver/store/queue folder
I saw that in EACH of the queue folders there were over 33,000 messages which if you count all the folders I am guessing equals over a million objects. Needless to say the queue halted and the server came to a halt.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I deleted the queue manually and all is well, but any enlightenment would be welcomed here.... Don't messages(even the ones that were not sent) get removed after a certain period of time???

Yes, I agree that the queue code needs a LOT of work. It seems like KMS has to read the entire queue folder, file by file, to generate the queue list (I could be wrong). I too have experience a problem where the Admin console freezes and subsequent connections to KMS also hang, forcing me to kill the server manually.

Normally you'd configure queue expiration in "SMTP Server -> Queue Options", but it seems that even failure notices clog up the queue and do not go away in a timely manner.

Sadly, I haven't found a solution to this problem.

I had the same problem, but that happened after a spam bot found out a weak password of one account and the pumped spam messages in. Had to stop KMS services, delete the queue folder, fix the spam problem and then restart the services.

Did you have a look at one of the messages in the queue folders? Was ist spam?
