[email protected] [/] ulimit -n 922222

did the trick
restart exim - no more error

but again no emails were transported

as mailscanner service was stopped - restarted mailscanner now it works.

how can i set the ulimit to a fixed size - so in case of reboot this wont happen again?

sysctl -a | grep fs.file-max
fs.file-max = 13055535

more /proc/sys/fs/file-nr
135168 0 13055535

lsof | wc -l
6179726
