    Go on, have a guess
    You need to make sure that your servers load average is well below 3 otherwise the exim mail queue processing will simply stop. You can start off a mail queue run with:

    exim -qff

    But watch exim_mainlog to see what happens with the queue run, i.e. whether it stops due to server load being too high. The other obvious possibility is that they cannot be delievered, this typically happens when using :blackhole: when you should be using :fail:

    just do this command in SSH and it will change all blackholes to fail

    replace :blackhole: :fail: -- /etc/valiases/*

    Thanks for your help.

    Is there anyway to view which files contain it before actually making the changes ?

    Thanks again

    this line is for file containing :fail:

    grep :fail: /etc/valiases/*

    and this for :blackhole:

    grep :blackhole: /etc/valiases/*
