Can the Retry time Really be Changed?

    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:rolleyes:

    Thoughts?

    Anyone have any thoughts? I have messages from seven days ago.
