    Hi all

    We keep getting this email every night from LFD/CSF which says:

    Unable to obtain exim queue length within 30 seconds - Timed out

    Yet, the email queue is normal, it can be accessed ok via Configserver's mail queue manager and the WHM Mail queue manager.

    The load is reasonable (1.00-2.00)

    Any idea why it keeps having issues with the queue?

    Tried restarting both Exim and CSF, but still get the same email every night

    I've been getting the same thing so it's not just you.

    No replies on CSF's forums so far.
    Haven't been able to figure out why it does it
    Ok, so the time stamp on the last two emails is 03:35
    UPCP runs at - 3:30am

    Is it possible upcp is causing too much load and thus, affecting CSf's ability to access the exim queue?

    Been looking through the exim_mainlog
    When the email is sent out, this is what shows in the log:
