11K emails?

Sounds like you were either hacked by a spammer or had a spam attack that filled up the queue with bounce mails to me.

You may want to give us some more details here as I'm assuming by WHM you mean cPanel's WebHost Manager you're talking about? Linux or Windows? If so, I believe that cPanel uses Exim's MTA [exim.org] and you would need to probably find out what command line tools are available for Exim and use those. Alternative, just find their mail queue file structure on the drive and simply look at a few files.

Sorry I haven't used cPanel or Exim much and can't help more, but they're all basically the same under the hood for the most part and shouldn't be too hard to figure it out.

no, its announcement email from me, before rebooted there is about 11,000 Outgoing Emails that still in queue in WHM > ConfigServer Mail Queues > Delivery Queue

after server rebooted, there is no one Outgoing Emails left, in WHM > ConfigServer Mail Queues > Delivery Queue




ok i already tried running this command, to search one of email address [email]email@domain.com[/email] or another email address, already sended or not, also trying to search the message subject

/usr/sbin/exigrep [email]email@domain.com[/email] /var/log/exim_mainlog


but no one is showing, including the first email address that surely already sended and received, that is my own email address

so maybe the problem is in exim log or 'ConfigServer Mail Queue' log, is crashed or missing during rebooted


is there another exim log or 'ConfigServer Mail Queue' log that i can see guys?
