I see these from time to time.  It occurs when exim accepted the
message during the SMTP session but a system filter fails the
delivery.  These settings in my exim.conf cause those stuck bounces to
vanish after a while :

# try resending after 15 minutes
auto_thaw = 15m
# if can't send after 8 days, cancel and notify sender
timeout_frozen_after = 8d
# failling bounce messages are discarded after this much time in the queue
ignore_bounce_errors_after = 2d


One OS to rule them all, one OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them,
In the Land of Redmond, where the Shadows lie.
