    We had a problem for a short period yesterday when spamd was struggling under load and exim failed to deliver with a 'transport filter timeout'. However, it appear that exim did not attempt any retries until several hours later. Can anyone shed light on this?

    Here's a log entry:
    Code:
    2007-05-16 10:42:32 1HoFzj-0001eI-IO spam acl condition: error reading from spamd socket: Connection timed out

    The message was received at 10.47 but not retried until 19.50! WTF?
