    Hi,

    I have set up one of my cPanel servers as a secondary MX server for one of my clients domains that have an external mail server. Their mail server is currently down so mine is collecting the e-mails. How long will Exim hold the e-mails before it deletes them if the other mail server doesn't come online?

    If you're asking if there is a different queue length for messages that come in via secondary MX processes, I don't think so...

    ... which means that however your 'normal' exim queue lengths are set will determine when they're returned.
