we leave them set to defaults... your messages are in queue for that long either because you have so many emails in queue it hasnt gotten to it yet or becuase that mail server is down. if you have a bunch of emails in queue you may want to exit /etc/xinet.d/exim and change q1h to q30m or q1m if you want to go nutz...
