    I am having some problems with exim and large mail queues. Basically i have sent a message to all users of our forum which caused the mail queue to go over 80,000.

     exim -bpc
    My system has 7984MB of RAM with 7518MB free and my load average is: 0.00, 0.01, 0.05.

    Looking at exim_mainlog, i see that messages are being processed but it is really slow.

    If i access WHM, go to Mail Queue Manager and try to send a message that is stuck there, it is send in a few seconds ( so they are not there because of invalid address or temporary failure on external server ).

    Do you have any recommendations of what should i check or what can i change to improve exim performance and make it use all CPU/RAM that i have available?
