    Mail System Problem

    This is the output for ls -la /var/mail for the specified user (I can't post all the directory output because it's too long (so many characters).
    [root@webserver ~]# ls -la /var/mail/web1_user1
    -rw-------  1 web1_user1 mail 2910002 Apr  4 16:33 /var/mail/web1_user1
    This is the output for repquota -avug | web1_user1

    [root@webserver ~]# repquota -avug | grep web1_user1
    web1_user1 --    2864       0       0              5     0     0
    The home directory is at /home/www/web1/user/ (the ISPConfig default).

    Which ISPConfig version do you use?
    Do you use Maildir or Mbox as mail storage format?
    Please post the output of the command "df -h" as falko requested?

    If you dont post data like the output of the command "df -h", we are not able to help you!

    Well, correct me if iam wrong, but if you use mbox you can max have a mailfile of x mb (really not mucht) i've had the same problem, only solution i had was to split the whole mailfile into sinlge mails and use cat to restore the original, (meanwhile fetching all the mail)

    Hope this helps you...

    On current linux distributions, you dont have the 2GB limit anymore. But mbox files tend to get corrupted when a mail arrives while you download emails with pop3 or access them with imap. Thats why we recommend always to use maildir.
