    Hello,

    My exim configurarion file has this setup as default:

    F,2h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,4d,8h

    This is for the queue retry rules. Actually I have messages in queue with more than 48hrs old and I don't want this to happen.

    I would like to set that exim delete ALL the messages in queue with more than 12hrs old and stop trying to deliver them. What should be the parameter for that?

    Thanks a lot guys!

    F,2h,15m; G,8h,1h,1.5; F,12h,4h

    that should do it, i changed the retry interval so that it works out right although I could be wrong on this

    Would you like to have a sneak on these values ?
    make sure you restart exim after changing these values.

    Hi,

    Well I set this up:

    # primary_hostname =
    deliver_queue_load_max = 3
    auto_thaw = 6d
    ignore_bounce_errors_after = 12h
    timeout_frozen_after = 24h

    Then:

    F,2h,15m; F,12h,4h

    These are retry intervals but the other values are deciding when the mail should be left / discarded out of queue
