    Mail on my server Gets sent to Exim in large batches about 16k emails at a time. Which causes alot of emails to go to the queue, and Exim is not as fast sending email from the queue.

    Would it be a bad idea to set up a cron to start new queue runners with exim -qf every 15 minutes or so, to ensure that queue is getting run quickly.
    Thank you
    Tim

    I wouldn't recommend that. Eventually you will get so many overlapping that your load will go through the roof and eventually freeze your box. Adjust the queue run time in tweak settings instead. Default is 60 minutes. Even still, be careful of adjusting this as well.
