Sorry Julian. My mistake. Yes -bd is not required for second exim process.
But even after removing it and restarting mailscanner and exim my problem
still remains.

The mail which I have sent is scanned in /var/spool/exim_incoming/input and
than put in /var/spool/exim/input. But mailq does not show anything and I
cannot send mail.

Now I am sending this mail by stopping mailscanner and just starting plain

What else could be wrong ?

Thanks a lot for the help.
