    Hi,

    Am having emails sit in the queue. Exim paniclog shows entries like:

    Code:
    root@phoenix [/home/cf]# tail -f /var/log/exim_paniclog
    2005-02-28 00:57:16 1D5ZDm-0000LC-9B failed to expand condition "${perl{checkspam}}" for literal router: Domain cableforum.co.uk has exceeded the max emails per hour. Message discarded.
    
    2005-02-28 00:57:20 1D5ZDp-0000LJ-9t failed to expand condition "${perl{checkspam}}" for lookuphost router: Domain cableforum.co.uk has exceeded the max emails per hour. Message discarded.

    Have tried tweaking the exim conf file with the below but there appears to be no difference.

    Code:
    smtp_accept_max = 500
    deliver_queue_load_max = 10
    remote_max_parallel = 5
    Googling parts of the error message give no matches. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Also get lots of returned emails with errors like:

    Code:
    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.
    
    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
    
      xxxx@hotmail.com
        unrouteable mail domain "hotmail.com"

    Looks like that domain has exceeded their max emails per hour as you have set within whm > tweak settings > Max emails per hour

    Are they sending a lot of email or is their script being exploited to spam hotmail?

    The above are checks of things you need to verify, prior to setting them a higher per hour limit for sending mail, within whm > tweak settings > Max emails per hour.

    Thanks DigitalN, for some reason this setting had reverted back to 1 in WHM! Much appreciated. :)
