    Go on, have a guess
    Not seen it before.

    However, you could check /var/lock/subsys and see if the exim file in there is locked open by some process:

    lsof | grep subsys

    If it's not open, try deleting the file and restarting exim.

    If that is the issue and you cannot find a process to kill, a quick reboot should fix it. Hammer to crack a nut, but it ought to resolve the problem.

    Ive chacked /var/lock/subsys

    theres an exim file in there owned by root with nothing in it at 0 bytes

    lsof | grep subsys returns nothign at all

    and a server reboot hasnt resolved the issue (tried a few times today)

    Ive tailed the logs and nothing looks out of place either...

    It seems to fail and then restart itself roughly every 20 minutes

    Hello All,

    Please check if disk full. Just fire command df -h and it will show you the status.

    If disk is full, then go on removing unwanted things from the particular drives.

    :)
