           Summary: File Already Exists in Spool Directory
           Product: Exim
           Version: 4.69
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: bug
          Priority: medium
         Component: Unfiled

My pager isn't receiving email-based pages because of this issue. Often, the
there will be a single page, and then subsequent pages don't get sent. This is
a serious problem for us.

I haven't seen anything that might be related except for similar error warnings
about permissions issues. I don't think this is a permissions problem as mail
delivery works most of the time.


We run this on an Ubuntu Jaunty server with exim v. 4.69

This is from the mainlog in /var/log/exim:

2010-04-03 15:02:40 1Ny4rw-0005Ti-W3 <= monit@??? H=localhost (admin1)

2010-04-03 15:03:10 1Ny4sQ-0005UZ-S7 Completed

There is also an accompanying paniclog which reiterates the failure to create
spool files because the file exists.


Thanks in advance,
