    Hello all,

    To my dismay today i have seen a very weird situation on my server.

    When i "tail" the exim mail logs, i can see the mails flowing, But when i run the command "exim -bpc" to count the mails in the queue i only ZERO ( 0 )

    Can you any one let me know what could the reason for it ?

    Thank you,

    Try "exim -bpc -C /etc/exim_outgoing.conf", it might be helpful.

    Quick help is here.

    in additional, may be your Scan Messages is disable. GO to WHM > ConfigServer MailScanner FE > MailScanner Performance > and check Scan Messages.

    Hello :)

    It's possible that no email is queued for delivery. Email messages that are delivered on the initial attempt will not remain in the queue. You could try sending a message that you know will not deliver so that it stays in your mail queue if you want to verify your queue is working.

    Thank you.
