Q0620

Question

Why does Exim bounce messages without even attempting delivery, giving the error retry time not reached for any host after a long failure period?

Answer

This message means that all hosts to which the message could be sent have been failing for so long that the end of the retry period (typically 4 or 5 days) has been reached. In this situation, Exim still computes a next time to retry, but any messages that arrive in the meantime are bounced straight away. You can alter this behaviour by unsetting the delay_after_cutoff option on the smtp transport. Then Exim will try most messages for those hosts once before giving up.
