Clearing the retry Database

Nathan Salt -

PROBLEM
I have too many entries in the retry database and it's size is affecting performance.

ENVIRONMENT

  • On-Premise Server + WebMail Installations: Version 6.0 > Current Version

CAUSE
Exim can accumulate a lot of entries in the retry DB over a long time.

RESOLUTION

You resolve this with a small script, which will clear any entries older than four days.

  1. Create a file called clear_retry.sh in /etc/cron.daily
    >/etc/cron.daily/clear_retry.sh
  2. In the above file, add the following:
    #! /bin/sh
    echo "Clearing retry database...n" /usr/local/atmail/mailserver/bin/exim_tidydb -t 4d /usr/local/atmail/mailserver/spool retry
  3. Save the changes and confirm the permissions are set correctly
    % chmod 755 /etc/cron.daily/clear_retry.sh
