You get used to them, though they can bring on headaches very quickly.
The qmailanalog package is excellent though, and removes nearly all need
to look at the actual logs.

Broken trigger. 'make check' in the qmail source build directory should

qmail always attempts a delivery. If that fails, it'll stay queued and
the error will be in the logs. With a broken trigger though, qmail-send
never gets the signal from qmail-queue that there's a new mail in the
queue that it needs to deliver. It'll find it eventually but that could
be some time later.
