    I can't find the orginal thread about setting up the following cron jobs:

    25 5 * * * root /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb -t 1d /var/spool/exim_incoming retry
    30 5 * * * root /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb -t 1d /var/spool/exim_incoming reject
    35 5 * * * root /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb -t 1d /var/spool/exim_incoming wait-remot$
    00 6 * * * root /usr/sbin exim_incoming -qff

    But I am getting errors with them and do not know what to check or change:

    For the exim incoming reject I get the following error:
    Usage: exim_tidydb [-t <time>] <spool-directory> <database-name>
    <database-name> = retry | misc | wait-<transport-name> | callout

    For the wait-remote_smtp I get this error:
    Tidying Exim hints database /var/spool/exim_incoming/db/wait-remote_smtp
    ** Failed to open database lock file /var/spool/exim_incoming/db/wait-remote_smtp.lockfile: No such file or directory

    for the incoming I get this -what the hell does that mean?
    /bin/bash: /usr/sbin: is a directory

    and finally for the -qff one I get this:
    exim: permission denied

    Any help on this would be appreciated. Support Ticket Number: Exim cron jobs Support Ticket Number: Support Ticket Number:
