    Hello,

    Interesting observation the other day and was wondering if this can be done with Exim MTA.

    I had been trying to send an email to a client of ours, but for some reasons all their accounts/domains where down(in the UK), but the various emails that I sent through our server just sat in the mail que and could not be delievered.

    now today I tried sending an email through my ISP, frontiernet but due the account not be reachable, I could not even send the email at all from my Outlook Express, but if I send it via our mail server, it goes through but sits in the que. This is the error I get when attempting to send via my ISP Smtp:
    Code:
    A time-out occurred while communicating with the server. 
    Subject 'Schools.ac Mods', Account: 'Frontiernet', Server: 'smpt.frontiernet.net', 
    Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): 
    No, Error Number: 0x800CCC19
    
    which is a TIMEOUT ERROR.

    can this been done some way with Exim so the emails just don't sit in the que for X days till it deleted as it can't be sent to the recipient instead of filling up the mail que??

    THX's
