Title: Issue with mail remote_smtp defer (-53): retry time not reached for any host.
Post by: Rahul Sambre on June 05, 2016, 09:59:13 PM
Hi,

One of our client facing issue with mail "remote_smtp defer (-53): retry time not reached for any host".

Simply take backup of /var/spool/exim/db/ directory if there is another problem arise.

Stop exim service using below command.

Quote
/etc/init.d/exim stop

Then use below command to access db directory.

Quote
cd /var/spool/exim/db

Now delete the ratelimit & retry files by using below commands.

Quote
rm -rf ratelimit
rm -rf retry

Or delete all files from "db"directory by using below command. As above steps we have already taken backup of /var/spool/exim/db/ directory if there is another problem arise.

Quote
rm -rf *

Then start the exim service using below command.

Quote
/etc/init.d/exim start

That's all.  :)
