    qmail died after disk filled


    i'm running qmail on slackware. we had a log file get a little out of control and ran out of disk space on the disk.

    i corrected the problem, but qmail still thinks there's no disk space! i can receive mail, send local mail, but i can't send remote mail!

    in my log files im seeing this a lot:
    Nov 8 19:57:37 evo sendmail[21952]: hA90vbpq021952: to=postmaster, delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=32985, relay=localhost.deadamerica.org. [64.235.47.3], dsn=5.1.3, stat=User unknown
    Nov 8 19:57:37 evo sendmail[21952]: hA90vbpp021952: Losing ./qfhA90vbpp021952: savemail panic
    Nov 8 19:57:37 evo sendmail[21952]: hA90vbpp021952: SYSERR(nobody): savemail: cannot save rejected email anywhere
    it looks like it's saying there's no postmaster setup, but i have a /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-postmaster file setup (it's been there and working for months).

    i tried restarting qmail completely. anyone know how i can fix this? it's kind of urgent, our users need to be able to send mail to outside domains.

    Those are log entries from sendmail, not qmail. Asides from the name "sendmail", the queue ID hA90vbpp021952 is a dead giveaway (qmail's queue ID's are numeric).
