Exim, Queing good emails, but not delivering

    I have a strange issue that I just noticed today.

    I have a user who is using a mail/merge program on their PC to send out emails to their chamber of commerce (legitimate customer for over 3 years). When he sends this mail merge program, located on his PC, it delivers the first 10 emails but Exim queues the remainder. I checked /var/log/exim_mainlog and saw this message on several of his emails...

    1END0I-0002P1-PM no immediate delivery: more than 10 messages received in one connection

    Thus, Exim is sending the first 10 but queueing the remaining emails. The PROBLEM is that, though I have Exim set to run the queue every 30 minutes, it does not deliver the remaining emails. They just sit and sit and sit and never get delivered.

    IF I click into the WHM Mail Queue, and click DELIVER NOW for all of the queue, these messages are also NOT delivered.

    IF I click on the individual message, and click DELIVER NOW, it will deliver the individual message.

    Has anyone seen this before? What is causing the exim error message "no immediate delivery: more than 10 messages received in one connection"?

    Thanks.

    This is an example of one of the messages that gets put in the queue and left there. NOTE: I've edited the domain names and IP addresses in this post for security reasons.

    try using given below command through ssh(as root)

    exim -bpru |awk '{print $3}' | xargs -n 1 -P 40 exim -v -M

    This will force the queue and will run multiple instances along

    This is what I have in the first box.

    ---------------------------
    log_selector = +all

    av_scanner = clamd:/var/clamd

    domainlist rbl_blacklist = lsearch;/etc/rblblacklist
    domainlist rbl_bypass = lsearch;/etc/rblbypass
    hostlist rbl_whitelist = lsearch;/etc/relayhosts : partial-lsearch;/etc/rblwhitelist

    Thanks. This seems to have emptied the queue just fine of legitimate email. Too bad the WHM interface does not handle this problem correctly and one must resort to a command line command to do a simple task.

    When searching this forum, i saw this topic. It describes exactly the same problem i have.

    Code:
    s01# grep 1GiEWl-00052w-6V /var/log/exim/mainlog
    2006-11-09 19:21:27 1GiEWl-00052w-6V <= list@domain.com H=s01.hostname.com (sub.domain.com) [213.189.*.*]:60412 I=[213.189.8.*]:25 P=esmtpa A=fixed_login:mailserver@hostname.com S=11677 id=d89205842b9f495b5648b46e60755fb4@sub.domain.com T="subject - November 9, 2006" from <list@domain.com> for user@provider.com

    Can anyone give me a clue?

    The first line of my exim.conf is just:
    log_selector = +all

    I've been seeing the exact same thing for the past week or so. Narrowed the problem down to having SpamAssassin enabled on a domain with a large discussion list. Once I disabled SA, it seemed to get the mail moving through properly again. Don't know if that'll help you out or not, but I thought I'd offer it.
