Useful Exim commands

Following are few Exim commands which may prove useful for your investigation purposes, as sometimes the queued mail list gets gigantic because of some spammer and other emails that aren’t spam could get deleted when using cPanel to control it.

The better solution would obviously be to prevent spammers of sending all those mails, if you know a better solution on cPanel 11 please share it with me.

==== REMOVE MAILS BY ID ====
/usr/sbin/exim -v -Mrm (MAIL ID HERE)

==== LIST QUEUED MAILS ====
/usr/sbin/exim -bp

==== OUTPUT NUMBER OF QUEUED MAILS ====
/usr/sbin/exim -bpc

==== DELETE FROZEN MAILS ====
/usr/sbin/exim -bp | awk ‘$6~”frozen” { print $3 }’ | xargs exim -Mrm

==== DELIVER FORCEFULLY EMAILS ====
/usr/sbin/exim -qff -v -C /etc/exim.conf &

==== FREEZE MAILS FROM SENDER ====
/usr/sbin/exiqgrep -i -f (MAIL ADDRESS HERE) | xargs exim -Mf

==== REMOVE MAILS FROM SENDER ====
/usr/sbin/exiqgrep -i -f (MAIL ADDRESS HERE) | xargs exim -Mrm
