Hi team,

I'm attempting to restore an Exim queue from backup. I have a backup of only the "input" folder of /var/spool/Exim.

Please help as the queue had some important emails.

Thanks in advance

All that's stored in /var/spool/input/* is the headers of the messages that were sent in MID format. The actual body isn't present. You would not be able to restore mail this way. If you do not have a backup containing copies of sent mail you'll not be able to resend these messages.
