    The exim queue is at /var/spool/exim/input, but you should never directly put messages into that location as exim needs to process the email to have it properly handled. What are you attempting to do with the script that needs to bypass exim processing it for queue delivery?

    i dont need to bypass exim processing, just want to avoid the overhead of delivering with smpt, and putting the email directly to the folder /var/spool/exim/input would do that right?

    That folder has various other folders in it and the emails need to be processed by the exim database in order to properly appear in the queue. You cannot bypass exim processing it, which is what trying to place them into that folder (or a subfolder therein) would do.

    Are you trying to basically deliver something to an account? If so, why even try to email it at all? Why not just put a file onto the account which bypasses any email delivery? You could cron output entries into a log file and then have that log file online (in a password protected area) or on the account itself.
