Plesk Outgoing mail control is not working, the server is flooded with spam.

In the maillog I see the following error message:

py_limit_out[15714]: ERROR [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/lib/plesk/mail/outgoing/data.db'


Invalid permissions


Make sure that following files and folder have a corresponding permissions

stat /var/lib/plesk/mail/outgoing/
