    I am receiving reports from several users saying that they are receiving login errors
    asking for a correct password. The curious thing is that all of them have been working
    perfectly during the last days. So I was wondering if maybe a peak of use can cause
    a condition where Exim is not recognizing user passwords.

    Clamav is usually a memory hog on busy email servers, so who knows...

    What is the relevant line in /var/log/maillog /var/log/exim_mainlog when this occurs, are there any specific errors shown there?

    Hello :)

    Is this system using Courier or Dovecot? What entries are logged to /var/log/maillog when this happens?

    Thanks.
