    Hi,

    I noticed that /var/spool/exim/input contain lots of mails since 31 March 2003.

    How do I remove them according to the ls -l command date?

    Thanks,

    exiqgrep -f '^<>$' -o NNN -i | xargs exim -Mrm

    NNN = messages that are older than the given time. (i.e. replacing NNN with 86400 would remove all messages older than 24 hours)

    Hi,

    Thanks,but ....

    exiqgrep -f '^<>$' -o 172800 -i -x | xargs exim -Mrm
    Line mismatch: 6d 19q0CH-0008Ke-Ry <> *** frozen ***
    exim: no message ids given after -Mrm option

    Hitting ls -l | more in /var/spool/exim/input produce the below output :
