Hi all,

I have been running exim with chippy's mailscanner and the server standard spamassasin happily for months. However over the last three days I have started to loose some mail. Basically if I am sent 50 mails to my account I will lose one or two. In my mail stats it shows :-

2 [email protected]: retry timeout exceeded

1 [email protected]: retry timeout exceeded

2 [email protected]: retry timeout exceeded

Please see below for a copy of the bounced messages headers. Could this be related to spamassasin or mailscanner being slow to respond or is it more likely exim ? Anyone offer me any advice as where to look?
Thanks!
