    I'm getting:

    2009-04-02 10:26:47 Berkeley DB error: PANIC: Invalid argument
    2009-04-02 10:26:47 Berkeley DB error: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery

    I don't know that this is really affecting anything but I'd li,ke to fix it. Everything I'm reading says to run "db_recover" but I see no such command located on the server. Any ideas as to what I should do here?

    thanks!

    I guess I should have looked a bit longer, Chirpy posted the following:

    If you're still having the problem, you likely have corrupt exim DB files. The simplest way to fix them is to probably stop exim and then remove the contents (not the directory) of /var/spool/exim/db/ and then restart exim which will recreate them afresh.

    Worked for me.

    Thanks!
