    This is running very frequently.
    Is not this a 1-hour procedure ?



    Thanks.

    This looks normal. Exim spawns new processes to handle incoming smtp requests.

    Go on, have a guess
    Actually, those of for processing email on the mail queue. IIRC, each thread processes up to 5 emails each and then dies. So presumably, there are multiple emails in the queue. So, yes, it's perfectly normal.
