Hi Martin-

Welcome back from vacation and thanks for your response.

Monit 5.0 will most probably solve he problem - it will wait for service to start before testing the next service.

I'm actually using the 5.0 beta, so this is good news. I saw the release notes mention that starting of services was now synchronous, but I wasn't certain that the checks were as well. I was also not sure if my issue had to do with _stopping_ of services being asynchronous.

Since the restart script is common, you can use common service entry in monit, joining the smtp port and process check, something like:

 check process spam_proxy with pidfile /var/run/
   start program = ...
   stop program = ...
   if failed port 25 protocol smtp then restart

Ah! Didn't even think to (or that I could) do that. That's great, thanks!
