Hello,

How can I increase the load limit at the mail queue process (the default is 3).
The server runs mostly in load more than 3.00.
So the mail queue process is running infrequently and many mails are lated delivered (for example 72hours) or they are not delivered until running manually the queue.

Possible it's not the best way to tackle with this problem, ideas/workarounds are always welcome.

Thanks

In WHM > Exim Configuration Editor > Advanced Editor area, put the following into the topmost box:

Code:
deliver_queue_load_max = #
Where # is the number you want in place of 3. Save that area, then grep in root SSH to ensure it changed the value. It should change it. Here's mine where I changed to 5 showing in that location:

Code:
[email protected] [~]# grep deliver_queue_load_max /etc/exim.conf
deliver_queue_load_max = 5
