    Hello,

    Run the following command

    echo " " > /var/spool/exim_incoming/msglog

    And also write a script to clear the log and run it as a cron

    Go on, have a guess
    Since you're using MailScanner if you have that directory I would recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of my script if you're using tht as it now disable the creation of files in the msglog. If not, add the following in the first box of the advanced exim configuration editor:

    no_message_logs

    Then there's no need to write a cron job to clear it down after you do so initially.

    These msglogs helped take down my servers once. (/var ran out of space)
