    Weird Mail Problems

    hi,
    i messed up my server at the weekend and got exim stuck in a permanent loop sending mail, which killed the server cos the load went through 300+ and meant i couldnt login an fix it, but happily my Server companys techs got into my box and renamed the /usr/sbin/exim file so i could login and remove the emails etc, which i did- then renamed exim back and restarted it via cpanel now it is running but my emails seem to take AGES to recieve

    any ideas whats going on

    cheers

    iits from any email address and it only seems to effect if its to a account that doesnt exsist and is therefore sent to the catchall email (which is my addY)
