Quickly and easily finding the source of emails in Exim

Ever found yourself in the position where there are hundreds, or perhaps, thousands of emails sitting in your Exim queue? Fortunately, there's a quick and easy way to find where they're originating from! 

awk '$3 ~ /^cwd/{print $3}' /var/log/exim_mainlog | sort | uniq -c | sed "s|^ *||g" | sort -nr

The above command will provide an output such as the below:

240 cwd=/var/spool/exim
20 cwd=/home/user
7 cwd=/home/user2
