any chance you've munged your .procmailrc or /etc/aliases
lately? i did a few days ago, and as a result i compressed my
server under a heavy load of exim-recursion loops ad infinitum.
load average was up to 36.2 !!
i have a secondary login that i forward stuff to as a
fall-through default, and i'd inserted an alias for "*" to be
for my primary login. so round and round it went...
it brought even the command line to a crawl -- i couldn't stand
the wait even for "man exim" to figure out how to kill the
suckers. so i renamed my ~/.procmailrc file and all the dust
finally settled, after which i figured out the snag (the *
alias) and then restored my .procmailrc.
i'm feeling much better, now.
