    :blackhole: should not have any space increase issues but :fail: will as it adds all failed emails to the mail queue for the length of time the queue operates in, usually arround 7 - 10 days. So failed emails will build up if more emails are added to the queue than are dropped off.
    The queue can be managed in WHM under Email/Manage Mail Queue.

    Your exim logs in /var/logs will also be growing as will your maillogs in the same place. You can force a logrotate by the command logrotate -f [config file] - usually logrotate -f etc/logrotate.d/exim also logrotate -f etc/logrotate.d/syslog to reduce the size of the maillogs but check it all out first to sure.
    :) HTH
