    Hello:

    Just a quick question... for some reason.. about 50 out of 60 emails that I send will go in the queue.. is there any changes we can make in the exim.conf file to reduce the amount of emails going to queue?

    Thanks in advance.

    Actually all mail goes to the queue !!!

    How long mail remains in the queue depends on how much mail is being processed
    by your server and whether or not the recipient mail servers are responding or not.

    Is it possible to have exim process the queue faster?

    You can change the processing interval by going to Main >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings: "Number of minutes between mail server queue runs (default is 60).:"

    If all your mail is just staying in the mail queue then there's probably a problem you need to fix. Click on Deliver Now on the individual emails and see what's reported.

    Go on, have a guess
    If you're finding email being queued you should check your exim mainlog (/var/log/exim_mainlog on Linux) for the transaction of such an email and it will indicate why the email was queued rather than delivered immediately.

    question for chirpy: why if someone sends mail to a nonexistent mailbox on my server, the mails stay in queue? how can i make it discard incoming mails to non existent mailboxes on the server?

    i have set the mail function to :fail, but still, i just got myself with over 9000 mails in queue, waiting to be delivered to non existent mailbox. is there any way i could check what's going on and why ?

    Double-check those emails, are you sure that they're waiting to be delivered locally and not actually bounced back to sender? They're usually the latter and you can control those using the exim ignore_bounce_errors_after command.

    well, it seems i host domain.com right, and the customer sends some mails to big mailing lists, not from my server, with address noreply@domain.com. funny thing is that the mails that bounce back, for example for disabled mailboxes and stuff, come to me, but ... noreply@domain.com mailbox does not exist. why do the mails stay in queue?
