How to fix Exim error – retry time not reached for any host

Exim error – retry time not reached for any host

Retry time not reached for any host. You will receive this error if your cPanel vps or cPanel dedicated server is unable to send mail to a remote server this could be because the remote server is offline or your server has been offline. If Exim cannot make a connection to the remote server, the retry time will be reached and the server won’t try to deliver the message until the retry time has expired.

If this happens often then that suggests you have a possible DNS issue and this should be investigated as soon as possible, if you have a support plan with us we can look at this error and make any fixes required. Just submit a ticket from your client area.

For a quick fix, you can remove the lock file and recreate it, this will then allow the server to try to deliver the message again. As the root user login using an ssh console and issue the below commands one by one.

cd /var/spool/exim/db
 rm -f retry retry.lockfile
 rm -f wait-remote_smtp wait-remote_smtp.lockfile
 service exim restart
