    Hello All,

    My server has got these many exim process, I have disabled FormMail from the server and also removed the old Bugged one.

    Dunno why these many exim processes are running which are affecting the sites to Load slowly or almost dead.

    When i stop and start exim the load goes down but reaches to 400 after few minutes.

    Off-hand I would say it's related to one of two things:

    daviddur 20592 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? Z 14:09 0:00 \_ [exim <defunct>]

    and/or

    SpamAssassin


    As I'm not sure how important SA is to your accounts, I would stop/start exim and watch the 'daviddur' processes. Could be an indicator of something more serious.
