Sorry if this has been asked before.
A message has been sitting in my queue. The log file contains multiple
instances of "remote_smtp defer (110): Connection timed out". I've connected
to the host on 25 and verified that I'm indeed unable to talk to it. So far
so good. My question is: why does Exim try to deliver it about every 3-4
minutes (with "Spool file is locked another process is handling this
message" about every 15-30 seconds)?
The retry rule is:
* * F,2h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,4d,6h
So, why is it doing it so frequently? Also is there a way to not include
"another process is handling this message" in the log?
