Re: savemail panic

Have you looked at /var/adm/syslog/mail.log?

Is it always "qfo2V050Tb016250"?
You could rename/remove those files "?fo2V050Tb016250" in /var/spool/mqueue/.

Have you searched for all 3 of the files with this pattern: ?fo2V050Tb016250

>how can I resolve this problem?

Was that filename the same each time?
Anything in the logs?

Re: savemail panic

Hi,

What is the permission/ownership of The /var/mail, var/tmp directory? This may have wrong permissions, which prevents write access to files!!

As Sooraj said, there is something stopping files from being created:

Does mailq show lots of undelivered mail?

You might also want to fix this:
unable to qualify my own domain name (MARS) -- using short name
be sure to set domain name in Dj macro in sendmail.cf

Re: savemail panic

You should also do a "bdf /var/spool/mqueue" and check the permissions and owners on the directory paths:
ll -d /var /var/spool /var/spool/mqueue

You have enough space in /var.

>find attached the permission directories you asked.
drwx------ 2 root mail Apr 1 11:05 /var/spool/mqueue

It looks like that's correct.

That was with the domain name. It says to "set domain name in Dj macro in sendmail.cf".

Not sure if that's the problem with savemail panic.
