In the advanced editor for exim, there is a section that indicates that it is possible to change the retry time. Yet, every email retries for the default time. I have placed values in the box below the default one (anything above it is not even carried through to the final exim.conf - so why is that box even there?) Code: begin retry * quota (added by whm) * * F,2h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,4d,8h default * refused F,12h,4h; * timeout F,12h,4h; me@mydomain * F,2d,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,3d,8h mydomain * F,48h,5m; another domain * F,1d,45m; * * F,2h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,2d,8h Nothing makes any difference. All are held for 4 days. And as I said if I put anything in the box above the defaults, they go to never-never land and nothing is saved and placed into the exim.conf. It is especially a pain as I only want the mailman messages to retry for a short period of time (12 hours like I set) - not the four days it wants to. I can manually edit the file - but we all know the problems therein Thoughts?
