Follow next steps to recover service and to stop old notifications:

Resolution

This error is detected and automatically recovered by Core-Admin. If you already have Core-Admin, you might have an old version. Upgrade it:

# crad-update.pyc  -u
# crad-update.pyc  -g

Then, manually recover by running the command (or just wait core-admin to do it for you in a few minutes):

# /usr/share/core-admin/tools/mail_admin/amavis-watcher.pyc --verbose

After that, you should have service recovered. Restart agent and log-watcher to discard old notifications:

# /etc/init.d/crad-log-watcher  restart
# /etc/init.d/crad-agent  restart
