Hi all,

I have this in my error log:

And my in looks like:

total 3.4M
-rw-rw----  1 root mailman 456K Nov 27 09:48
-rw-rw----  1 root mailman 120K Nov 27 14:38
-rw-rw----  1 root mailman  16M Nov 28 11:43

Things I checked are:

1) free disk space: more than enough
2) free inodes: more than enough
3) no SELinux or other security/restriction framework installed
4) bin/check_perms does not list any errors
5) other email is delivered

Any other ideas what to check? Upgrading Mailmain is an option, but I
would like to avoid that, if possible.

Thanks for all feedback,
