    Hi,

    I wonder if somebody could help me to find a solution to a problem I am having with Exim and MailScanner. When going through the Exim logs, I noticed that, occasionally, the server fails to deliver massages to local addresses. The log entries look like that:

    2003-11-27 20:01:21 1APX0Z-0002fi-E6 <= william@ispp.edu.kh H=(pop3.telesurf.com.kh) [203.144.65.19] P=esmtp S=6182 id=001501c3b54b$479927a0$4100a8c0@ispp.org.kh
    2003-11-27 20:01:22 Start queue run: pid=11489
    2003-11-27 20:01:22 End queue run: pid=11489
    2003-11-27 20:01:22 Start queue run: pid=11458
    2003-11-27 20:01:22 1APX0Z-0002fi-E6 == xanthe@ispp.edu.kh <Xanthe@ispp.edu.kh> R=defer_router defer (-1): All deliveries are handled by MailScanner
    2003-11-27 20:01:22 1APX0Z-0002fi-E6 ** Xanthe@ispp.edu.kh: retry timeout exceeded
    2003-11-27 20:01:22 1APX0c-00030r-Q3 <= <> R=1APX0Z-0002fi-E6 U=mailnull P=local S=7054
    2003-11-27 20:01:22 1APX0Z-0002fi-E6 Completed
    2003-11-27 20:01:22 End queue run: pid=11458

    At first I could not find any regularity for these errors but then I realized that they occur only when a message arrives seconds before the queue run starts.
    I will appreciate any help with that issue.

    Thanks,

    Marek

    Problem solved

    I solved the problem by setting up a cron job that cleans the Exim database every 24 hours. Not a single rejected mail since then.
