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

    Didnt find any directory "/var/spool/exim_incoming/msglog" in the cPanel servers. Instead found "/var/spool/exim/msglog"
