Exim problem

While attempting to send outgoing mail through our exim relays, our Qmail mailbox was saying:

@400000004b60848425285634 delivery 12799: deferral: Connected_to_216.120.xxx.xxx_but_connection_died._Possible_duplicate!_(#4.4.2)/

On the relay : 2010-01-27 13:25:31 1NaCa3-0000zJ-AT demime acl condition: error while creating mbox spool file 2010-01-27 13:25:34 1NaCa3-0000zJ-AT H=smtp-2.******.net [216.120.xxx.xxx] F=<sherry@domain.com> temporarily rejected after DATA

This was resolved by clearing out the 30,000+ directories in /var/spool/exim/scan on the exim relay server left over from clamd scanning.

/etc/rc.d/init.d/exim stop; cd /var/spool/exim/scan;  find ./ -type d -exec rm -rf {} \; /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim
