Go to mysql

Then from with the query browser run

delete from sends;

Hello :)

You can repair the "eximstats" database via a command such as:

Code:
mysqlcheck --repair eximstats
After that, I recommend modifying the following option under the "Stats and Logs" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings":

"The interval, in days, to retain Exim stats in the database"

You can reduce the number of days if you find there is too much disk space usage being utilized by Eximstats.

Thank you.

You can generate a new instance of the table via:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/updateeximstats
Thank you.
