    I have a site created with 2048 Mb. of Space asignated.

    It just happened that the amount has been reached for the site.

    No more mails where received, and none was discarded.

    Also no notification has been sent nor message showed up nowhere.

    The sintoms where:

    1) All mails for the domain where acepted.
    2) No new mails where added in any account, so all mails received had been lost.
    2) No web client did work (openwebmail,uebimiau)
    3) Outllok did not work properly.

    Is there a way of notifing this event?

    My setup is:

    red hat linux 4.0

    Thank's in advance.....Larry.

    Are you using Maildir or mbox? What's the output of
    df -h

    Looks ok. Normally Postfix should send a delivery status notification saying that the mailbox is full. Are you sure that this wasn't sent?

    First, I don´t use postfix, I use sendmail

    Second, I am not completely sure that no mail has been sent since I don´t know to whom it's sent. As far as I know, no mail has been sent. If you can tell me to whom is suposed to be sent I can check my logs.

    The emails are sent to the sender of the email that was not delivered.

    If the email is sent to the sender, then no mail is sent on my case.

    I sent emails from hotmail to the account with problems, and the emails where acepted by the system and no messsage received and they did not show-up nowhere.

    They where lost.

    I guess then that there is a misconfiguration in sendmail as it is the job of the mta to send a warning to the sender of the email. Postfix for example is doing this by default. But I'am not familar with the sendmail config files to help you with this configuration.

    I thought that there was a system similar as the one used when traffic is exceeded, so we could change the recipients of the message.
