    These days I got so many returned messages. Look at the below email as an example.

    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
    retry time not reached for any host after a long failure period

    ------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------

    Do follwing:

    cat /var/log/exim_maillog | grep

    and check output. It will show why the message couldn't be delivered to

    The message:

    ***retry time not reached for any host after a long failure period

    doesn't say what exactly caused the problem. So you need to check the logs more closely.

    Also, if the message wasn't sent my you, it means some spammer sent the spam and the headers "from" was faked. That is why you got the bounced messages.
