    Hi Guys,

    Could anybody tell me the use of /var/spool/exim? This directory taking up all the free space available in my /var/. I believe it's incoming mail queue. If so it should be cleared if I manually perform local mail delivery. Is that correct? Any help in this highly appreciated :)

    I'd recommend you to install ConfigServer Mail Queues:
    ConfigServer Mail Queues

    "The product provides you with a full featured interface to the cPanel exim email queues from within WHM."

    In order to get your mail queue emptied, you should check and try one of these commands too:

    Remove emails queue for blank senders:

    exiqgrep -i -f '<>' | xargs exim -Mrm

    exiqgrep -z -i | xargs exim -Mrm (For Incoming Emails)

    exiqgrep -z -f | xargs exim -Mrm (For Outgoing Emails)

    Hello :)

    It's a good idea to review the emails in your mail queue before using a command to delete them. You can see the messages in your mail queue via:

    "WHM Home » Email » Mail Queue Manager"

    Check to see if emails are building up for a specific reason (e.g. from a spammer) to ensure they do not continue to build up in the queue in the future.

    Thank you.
