# /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim callout

Tidying Exim hints database /var/spool/exim/db/callout
** Failed to open database lock file /var/spool/exim/db/callout.lockfile: No such file or directory

Why does not the tidydb for callout work?
the other 3 works.

(it's available in /scripts/eximcron)

Login as root and run:

crontab -l

It will show you all your running cron jobs and the settings for them.

didn't think of that. I ran the script on 2 boxes and and I see those tidydb crontabs are in my cron on those boxes. Looks like set to 0 6 ... is that good enough in your opinion to keep mail from building up?

Well i have a callout db and it fails evertime. In fact if you run these from /etc/crontab there are other db's that fail. Give it a try sometime. Remove the entries in contab -e and place them in /etc/crontab.

This is the contents;

crontab -e

Howabout misc? We also have a misc db as well. That also FAILS
