Hi

I'm having some problems with cpanel, going to mail configuration:

main->email->mail queue manager

when i try to remove all messages via "Delete all messages in Queue " there is no error (cpanel shows 3 messages in the queue).

When i try to delete them one by one i get:

Spool data file for 1GUw5V-0000yb-RP does not exist
Continuing, to ensure all files removed
Spool read error for 1GUw5V-0000yb-RP-H: No such file or directory
Continuing to ensure all files removed
Message 1GUw5V-0000yb-RP has been removed or did not exist

so where does cpanel get this information about messages in the queue?

best regards

Hint!

Try:
Code:
# exim -bp
on your server. As i know, there is the place where CPanel gets it's records.

Exim will queue a message before it is delivered. Typically, a message is sent as soon as it reaches the queue, but messages always go to the queue first. If for some reason the message is not able to be sent or delivered, then the message is on the queue and can be retried at a later time.

The message you are seeing is showing that you had a message in the queue with a unique ID of 1GUw5V-0000yb-RP. When you went to remove the queue, this message (1GUw5V-0000yb-RP) had already been removed. It is very likely that when you viewed the queued messages, 1GUw5V-0000yb-RP was on the queue, but then was sent out or delivered before you could delete it. That is why it is saying the message is not there, because it is no longer in queue.
