    Hello,

    we recently added this to the exim.conf to removed bounce emails after X mins:
    Code:
    ignore_bounce_errors_after = 30m
    
    to speed up clearing out bounced emails. But it doesn't seem to work. I noticed that alot of bounce emails in the que are still there up to an hour or so, and sometime remain in the que for over 2hrs.

    Is there another setting or other configuration setting that I may have missed or need to add??

    Thx's
    Mickalo

    Thx's. Not a real big deal, just curious if I may have missed something. It normally clears out the bounced message with a 2hr period.

    Go on, have a guess
    It will probably depend on how often the queue runner is set to go off. If it's set to an hour (the default) then bounces could remain for up to 1h 59m. I've also seen some mention that anything less that 1d doesn't always work - YMMV.
