smtpQ Deleting eml files instead of moving to Undeliverable folder?

Jan 04 '16 at 23:39

Looking at the smtpQ log file, I see entries such as:

(Mon, 04 Jan 2016 23:09:39 -0500) tryCount: 5

(Mon, 04 Jan 2016 23:09:39 -0500) sleepMillisec: 90000

(Mon, 04 Jan 2016 23:10:40 -0500) Thread is dead (A): C:some pathsome FileName.eml

(Mon, 04 Jan 2016 23:10:40 -0500) Deleted dead EML: : C:some pathsome FileName.eml

I was under the impression smtpQ does NOT delete eml files. Instead it should move them to the Undeliverable folder. Please clarify: are there scenarios where smtpQ decides to delete eml files? If so, why? How can we avoid those scenarios?
