amavis: (!)Net::Server: 2021/06/12-20:29:46 Bad fork [Cannot allocate memory]n at line 145 in file /usr/share/perl5/Net/Server/PreForkSimple.pm
The following errors may be found on
kernel: [8902350.627441] Out of memory: Kill process 17650 (/usr/sbin/amavi) score 76 or sacrifice child
Server RAM is being overloaded, as a result kernel kills Amavis service, causing the mail queue not to be processed.
Warning: The procedure below will restart Amavis, and set reprocess the emails on the queue, but the issue may happen again if the underlying cause is not dealt with. If the excessive RAM usage is a recurrent behavior, allocate more RAM to the server in order to prevent the issue from reoccurring.
Connect to the server via SSH.
Start the Amavis service:
# systemctl start amavisd
Re-send queued emails:
# postsuper -r ALL
