    My exim queue is just huge all the time. I have started pruning mail from null senders.
    Code:
    exiqgrep -i -f '^<>$' | xargs -n 1 exim -Mrm
    
    While that has helped a bit my queue is still pretty large. I do see some mail in the queue waiting for delivery to local accounts that do not exist. What do I need to be looking for in my config to make those messages bounce automatically?


    Thanks

    Have you already tried changing some of the settiings within your exim.conf?

    The exim conf default is pretty sucky. You might want to take a look at the below settings and change them to something more reasonable.

    auto_thaw = 6d
    ignore_bounce_errors_after = 7d
    timeout_frozen_after = 8

    adding sender verify callouts seems to have done the most good for my queue.

    It has gone from an unwieldy 3k to a peek around 300 when sending 15K outbound mails. Most of the time it seems to hover < 30.
