Subject: [exim] Delay after "exim -Mg ..." to local address.




Hi,
when I use "exim -Mg ..." to cancel the delivery of a message from a local
user I get the following error message:
"<= <> R=KHO5OZ-0005ES-HQ U=Administrator P=local S=1636
== user1@??? R=local_user T=mail_spool defer (-6): mailbox
/var/mail/user1 has wrong uid
(1111 != 500)"
After the retry delay of 15min the delivery report message will be
sucessfully delivered by the queue runner.

The platform is Windows Server 2003 with Cygwin. On this platform only the
daemon/queue runner process has the correct permission to do local
deliverys.
The account which issues the "exim -Mg ..." has not.
Is there a way to avoid the immediate delivery and to queue the delivery
report message when using "exim -Mg ..." ?
It would also be ok if the transmission of the would use the smtp daemon.

I tested with "exim -odq -Mg ..." but without success (see the debug
output below).
Thanks
