Q5020

Question

How can I make Exim receive incoming mail, queue it, but not attempt to deliver it? I want to be in this state while moving some mailboxes.

Answer

Set queue_only in the Exim configuration. Then kill your daemon, and restart it without the -q option (i.e. with just the -bd option), so that it does not spawn any queue runners. This stops all deliveries, remote as well as local.
