Clean up Exim msglog Logging /var/spool/exim_incoming/msglog

Exim has a dirty habbit of storing useless logs and not cleaning after itself that can eat up all your disk space on /var if not taken care of. Exim msglog is the cuplrit and we have a solution for you.

There is a very simple and easy fix for this one: simply add the following to your Exim Configuration. Login to WHM as root and go to Exim Config Editor. In the first window add the following:

# turn off writing of logs to /var/spool/exim_incoming/msglog/
no_message_logs


Save and restart Exim.

You can now also safely delete anything in: /var/spool/exim_incoming/msglog

    T1 will run you about $369 or digg deeper and you can find them in the lower $300's make sure it includes the loop this is for a T1 1.5MB NO one should run a "Legit" hosting Company with anything less... <br />

    i must say, this is tremendous, thanks for the grate information and lesson.
    i am from nigeria, and read computer science. i want to set up my own hosting company here in Nigeria but i don't really know anything about setting up a hosting company but i will like to set it up here.

    reason

    1. because i have design a social network which i will like to host it in my company,
    2. the hosting company here will charge me alot for my social network site because it has a space for every one to upload their video if they which.
    3. the space that i will net for this site will be big and it will cost me alot for every month.
    let me say that should be all for now


    till i hear from you
