What I think is that your 104 lists are set-up to archive messages.
After a while your partition /var (if setup independant) becomes too 
small to handle all the messages archives.
The only thing you have to do is the contact the system administrator of 
the server that handles your lists and ask him/her to increase the /var 
partition size.
off-topic : that's not that easy as I would need to do it on one server ...
