    I have messages (some, not all) queueing up on my server, and when I try to manually deliever them, I get messages like this:

    Message 1GQMRW-0002ig-QB is not frozen
    delivering 1GQMRW-0002ig-QB
    LOG: MAIN PANIC
    Couldn't create message log /var/spool/exim/msglog/W/1GQMRW-0002ig-QB: No such file or directory


    Any idea why this might be happening?

    Go on, have a guess
    Does /var/spool/exim/msglog exist? If not, create it and chown it mailnull:mail

    Yes it does, and that is the ownership currently on it.

    I'd suggest adding the following to the Advanced mode Exim Configuration Editor in WHM (first textarea):

    no_message_logs

    Since the message logs are of little real use.

    OK, I did that, and it delivered the mail. I assume that is what you thought would happen?
