    I have a client that is saying that sometimes they don't receive email 4-5 days after they know that someone has sent them. And that they are coming from different senders. Can anyone offer advice on what I should check? Here is a log of messages from the stats:

    Is there anything that sticks out right off hand? tia

    Go on, have a guess
    You would need to get the exim message ID from the email and then search your exim_mainlog to see what's happened with the email transaction.

    Ok, I'm a complete novice (imagine that) and don't know what the exim message ID is and where to get it.

    You would need a copy of one of the emails in question. You would need to look at the email headers of the email and look at the last Received: line (which actually appears as the first in the header from top down) which was inserted by exim. The ID you want is part of that Received: line called id an example of which is:

    Code:
    Received: from web2.cpanel.net ([69.90.250.19])
    	by myserver.com with esmtps (TLSv1:AES256-SHA:256)
    	(Exim 4.52)
    	id [B]1G5nM2-0001YK-VM[/B]
    	for me@myserver.ocom; Wed, 26 Jul 2006 18:39:31 +0100
    ID is highlighted in bold above.

    Then, with that message ID, search your exim_mainlog. So, using this example:

    grep 1G5nM2-0001YK-VM /var/log/exim_mainlog
