    Hi,

    I have noticed exim is not clearing the old email from the mail queue, there are thousands of emails in there going back upto 20 days.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Run:

    /scripts/reseteximtodefaults
    /scripts/exim4
    /scripts/restartsrv_exim

    This will reinstall exim.

    Hi,

    Thanks but that won't fix it, ive tried /scripts/eximup --force which is what

    /scripts/reseteximtodefaults
    /scripts/exim4

    both do (without force)

    Try this :

    pico /etc/exim.conf

    Set ignore_bounce_errors_after = 7d (standard) Or what ever you like.
    Restart exim.

    I am having the same issue, and my setting reflects:

    ignore_bounce_errors_after = 7d

    Is there any other workaround?

    Try this, WHM>>>>>>>>Exim Configuration Editor >>>>>>>>>Advanced mode. Then in the first white box type:
    Code:
    timeout_frozen_after = 2d
    ignore_bounce_errors_after = 2d
    Adjust days to your taste and hit save at bottom of page. ( yep, you can do this with vi /etc/exim.conf )
