    Hi,
    does anyone know how you can get the mail queue to hold only emails from the past 2 days or less. My servers mail queue keeps getting quit large - Dual Xeon server with 500 + Accounts. I've noticed this slows down the server quite a bit so I'd really like the queue to only hold unsent or undelivered messages for last 2 days at max. Where in WHM can you change this setting? I thought I saw somewhere to change this in the past but now I can't seem to find it.

    Thanks

    Its an option in /etc/exim.conf

    Open it up, and search for ignore_bounce_errors_after

    I have mine set to 2d (two days) which might be standard; I'm not sure. Hope this helps.
