This advice is for experienced Linux administrators only. For get more help through our HelpDesk.

Using the server console, if you see the message "accept() returned invalid socket" in /var/log/pmlog, this usually indicates the server does not have sufficient memory to service the number of concurrent mail threads.

Example:

Perfectmail: accept() returned invalid socket (Numerical result out of range), try again
Nov 22 19:20:45 myserver last message repeated 10 times

Consider increasing your server memory. A busy PerfectMail server may require 4Gb of memory, or more.
