    I have email that has been sitting in my queue for days now. When I click on Delete, it gives the following message:

    LOG: 5 MAIN
    Spool file is locked (another process is handling this message)
    Message 19Dw7s-0006VT-00 is locked

    How do find the process that is handling this or better yet, how do I delete the email from the queue altogether?

    If you are trying to delete a message in queue a lot of times for days without success, do this:

    1) /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim stop
    2) Delete the message in your Mail Queue
    3) /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim start

    This will work for you. :) Support Ticket Number:
