    # /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

    0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim callout > /dev/null 2<&1 FAILS
    0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim retry > /dev/null 2<&1
    0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim reject > /dev/null 2<&1 FAILS
    0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim wait-remote_smtp > /dev/null 2<&1
    0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim_incoming callout > /dev/null 2<&1 FAILS
    0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim_incoming retry > /dev/null 2<&1
    0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim_incoming reject > /dev/null 2<&1 FAILS
    0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim_incoming wait-remote_smtp > /dev/null 2<&1 FAILS

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