Here are a few simple commands to use from the command line to view and manage the exim queue.

List total emails in the queue:

exim -bpc

List all emails in the queue:

exim -bp

Get the headers from an email using the message-id:

exim -Mvh <message-id>

Get the email body from an email using message-id:

exim -Mvb <message-id>

Clear the queue:

exim -bp | awk '/^ *[0-9]+[mhd]/{print "exim -Mrm " $3}' | bash
