    I'm noticing that if a mail cannot be delivered in the queue, it takes seven days before qmail responds back to the user of the problem. How do I shorten that time?

    If you create a file called:


    You can enter the number of seconds you want messages to stay in the queue, then a blank line afterwards, save it and restart qmail.

    The default is 604800 seconds = 7 days. You could try something like 259200 for 3 days, or whatever you desire. You can use "man qmail-control" for help with the options, then search the net for what each control file does.
