    Hello,

    Yes, as mentioned, let us know the output from /var/log/exim_mainlog for this message with a command such as:

    Code:
    exigrep MSDID /var/log/exim_mainlog
    Ensure you post the output in CODE tags, removing any identifying information about your domain name or server.

    Thank you.
