exiqgrep exit with error “Line mismatch”

Sometime exiqgrep exit with error Line mismatch when you try to remove emails with the -Mrm option

#exiqgrep -o 604800
Line mismatch: 170d 1IGLxw-0004Tw-Ne

You can remove the particular entry that errors out as follows.
# exim -bpru | grep “170d” | awk ‘{print $2}’
1IGLxw-0004Tw-Ne
1IGTFn-0000VM-UI
#exim -bpru | grep “170d” | awk ‘{print $2}’ | xargs -n 1 -P 20 exim -Mrm

You will see something like,

Spool data file for 1IGLxw-0004Tw-Ne does not exist
Spool data file for 1IGTFn-0000VM-UI does not exist
Continuing, to ensure all files removed
Continuing, to ensure all files removed
Message 1IGTFn-0000VM-UI has been removed or did not exist
Message 1IGLxw-0004Tw-Ne has been removed or did not exist


Nevermind, those messages should be removed now
Repeat the process until all the mal-formated entries are removed.
Did that work for you ?
