    Exim has been slowing down for no apparent reason of late on one server. Serverloads remain around the 0.20 mark.

    Has Exim been upgraded through WHM, or changed in any other way resulting in the slow down?

    How have you deduced it has &slowed& ?

    You mean messages aren't being delivered in a timely fashion?
    How do /var/log/exim_mainlog and exim_rejectlog look...... ?
    Is anything building up in the queue of loveliness?

    (/var/spool/exim)

    It's taking clients upto 60 seconds just to login and check their mail.

    /var/log/exim_mainlog and rejectlog look pretty normal, and there isn't much in the queue....

    Thanks for the help,

    Matt

    check their mail = cppop issue
    cppop controls the incoming pop3 logins-
    &top& should show you an onslaught from a particular user if that is what is happening.

    Or, you've got a multitude of large pop3 boxes, most likely putting enormous strain on the pop server.

    /var/log/maillog may provide some help.
