Exim Problem

    I have the following setup on my domain:

    mail.domain. A <Exchange Server IP>
    mailbackup.domain. A <Exim Server IP>
    domain. MX 10 mail.domain.
    domain. MX 20 mailbackup.domain.

    The idea being should my Exchange server be down, mail will be collected by the
    Exim server. Exim will then "ping" my Exchange server every 15
    minutes for 2 hours (as the config states) and, after a successful connection,
    deliver the email.

    This isn't happening.

    Instead, Exim tries pinging the server as soon as email hits it for the first
    time, then doesn't try again for another 40 minutes!! Any additional mail that
    hits the backup doesn't trigger a ping either!

    Really, I need Exim to be pinging the Exchange server every minute for 15
    minutes, then every 10 minutes for the remaining 4 hours, followed by every 30
    minutes thereafter for the remaining 5 days. In addition any additional email
    *should* trigger a ping.

    Can anyone help/advise?

    Just for the record, I'm running a dedicated server using cPanel 10.9.0-R79 with Exim 4.52.

    Thanks in advance,
