    We are getting exim exited on signal 6 very frequently in our messages log on a FreeBSD 5.3 box (exim-4.53-0).

    eg.
    pid 14979 (exim-4.53-0), uid 26: exited on signal 6

    Exim still seems to run ok and mail comes through fine. My initial thought was exim may not be able to write to a log file but all the exim log are being written to ok.

    Anyone else expirience this or can anyone shed some light on the cause?

    Thanks!

    More info...

    Exim dies on signal 6 when certain other mail servers connect to our server. This is causing clients not to receive some mail. Other mail comes through just fine. When exim aborts, the sending servers report that the connection is reset by our mail server:

    "stat=Deferred: Connection reset by ourmailserver.com"

    Ideas?
